i thought at first it seemed a good idea, but looking more into it I am not so sure. Need a pretty good internet connection to start with and need a unlimited service, not doubt Bt and Talk Talk will give the boxes away if you go for a stupid broadband contract for 24 months
the one problem is that any pay service on the system will have it own pay system, so instead of having on direct debit, you will have multiple direct debits for how many services you subscribe to.
i think it will fail as by the time it is launched, most people who want a Hd Freeview box will have one, so why will they buy again?
I will stay well clear since BT and Talk Talk have their grubby hands in it.
