EE launches home TV service in UK


[link to this post]
 
EE launches home TV service in UK it looks good, I did wonder when they would offer a TV service to keep up with the Competition, also it sounds too good to be true what's the catch, will it require the customer to have a fibre connection to stream the service? wink

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-29535279

The service is included in the price of EE's broadband and landline packages.

EE said that the "free" set-top box it is providing was worth £300

The set-top box contains a one terabyte (TB) hard disk, which the firm said could store up to 25 days worth of standard definition content and five days worth of high-definition shows.

This gives each viewer the chance to watch, queue and view what they want, when they want. smile

EE broadband WBC 20 Mbps unlimited. Sync 15282 kbps Downstream, 1276 kbps Upstream. thinkbroadband/SpeedTest

What streaming?

It is mainly a freeview PVR with some nice additions, and then a few services like BBC iPlayer which are happy with 3 Mbps or better ADSL sepeds

Writing news now - was out and about on Wednesday

Cannot say for sure yet.

Probably if you re-contract for another 12/18 months

In reply to a post by E7er:

Is it? Don't you need a mobile plan as well?
In reference to ee.co.uk/eetv:
EE TV is available to all of our EE, T-Mobile and Orange mobile customers who also have EE broadband.

EE TV is available to all of our EE, T-Mobile and Orange mobile customers who also have EE broadband. You can get EE TV free with EE Broadband for just £9.95 a month plus £15.75 line rental.


Following sentence suggests it is available with fixed broadband alone. As usual confused messaging on the EE website and expect to see wording changes in the next few weeks.

Then why don't they simply say 'EE TV is available to all of our BB customers'? What's with introducing mobile customers into the equation?

No, EE being a mobile-centric company, I read it as ...

EE TV is available to all our mobile customers who also have EE broadband. If you, our preferred mobile customers, don't already have EE broadband, you can order it at the knock-down rate of just £9.95 a month plus £15.75 line rental and thereby have EE TV for free.

Open to debate, and will wait for proper launch T&C rather than just a register interest page before pestering.

Feel free to tweet them if worried about it.

I'm not a twit! I'm not worried about it. Anyway, I doubt I am eligible for free EE TV as I am a rare BB only cust.

First and foremost, it's an interface to allow three phones or tablets to stream different programmes at the same time, without effecting the channel being watched, even if not previously recorded. Taking the grunt of streaming with a phone alone.
