Plus net vision box

Any plans to introduce a TV package including sky sports?

Latest statement from PlusNet that I recall seeing...
Quote from: Chris
TV is something we've thought about (and continue to do so) as to not consider it leaves us susceptible to those that do provide it. There's no firm plans but we are certainly considering it.

My free trial Youview box went in the bin two days ago.

I didn't think that YouView would offer enough extra to my PVR to be worth worrying about. Reading reviews recently I was surprised to find that the initial YouView boxes are in many ways inferior to my PVR and are subject to glitches. Perhaps worth considering in a couple of years time when the technology is mature.

Re: Plus net vision box

Today I discovered that:-
a) My PVR has lost the capability to play iPlayer.  Cry
b) It works as a DLNA client, so it will play back all audio-visual content from my PC provided I loaded the MediaTomb package.  Smiley Smiley Smiley
So I don't have any use for YouView.

We're in the early stages of TV trials with staff. We are excited about the opportunities this will extend to our customers in the near future but as yet, have no fixed timings for a public launch.
