TalkTalk roll out their YouView box to jaded customers
Another day, another YouView launch. A few days ago, BT announced that its long-term broadband customers would be able to claim a YouView box (with a fairly hefty installation fee chucked in) and now TalkTalk has followed suit, only hours after it was announced that it was top of the broadband complaints list yet again.
TalkTalk broadband customers can get the 320GB YouView box for free (subject to a £50 installation fee) as long as they sign up to a £14.50 per month telly package. As with the BT variation, the box will have Freeview channels (with some in HD) and give users access to catch-up services like BBC iPlayer and 4OD as well.
But there’s a twist. There’ll also be the option to subscribe to pay TV channels such as Sky – you can get their entertainment channels for an extra £5.00 ‘boost’ a month. Additionally, Sky Sports will be available for another £30 a month ‘boost’ and movies could be fired into your eyeballs if you hand over a £15 a month ‘boost’.
Are you a Talk Talk customer? Is that the kind of offer that makes you want to lick your lips in anticipation? Or can they bloody well go and stick it up their fundaments? Tell us. TELL US NOW!
