Plusnet is looking for existing customers to trial its TV service

http://community.plus.net/blog/2013/12/19/plusnet-is...

As part of Plusnet’s exciting plans to move into TV, Plusnet’s YouView trials are to be extended from staff, to customers who have Unlimited Fibre, in the new year.

Plusnet will provide a Humax YouView+ box offering Freeview channels and easy access to on-demand content, such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4OD and Demand5. Plusnet is also offering customer trialists access to extra channels including top sporting action on BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN, as well as entertainment channels including SyFy, Universal, E! and Fox – all delivered through the fibre broadband connection.


Rob Perkins, Head of TV at Plusnet said of the announcement,

“This is an exciting step forward for Plusnet and these trials will ensure Plusnet can gain crucial feedback to ensure it launches the best service it can to a wider customer base later in the year.”

People accepted onto the TV trial will be given loan of a YouView box and any other essential equipment for at least three months, at which point the box should either be returned or the trialist can opt in to the paid-for service.*

To be considered for the trial, you will need to have Plusnet Unlimited Fibre and a working TV aerial. You will need to commit to use the service and provide feedback through short web-surveys when requested (these are expected to happen no more than once or twice per month).

If you are interested in joining the trial, please log in to http://trials.plus.net/ where you will be asked to complete an application form.

The full launch date for Plusnet TV, along with pricing at this launch, is yet to be confirmed.

Not a big TV watcher at all so will leave this to those who are, and hope it goes well.

I see this one uses a proper trial form so this time it is not known who accepted or not, probably for the better as its not godo what happened with the ipv6 with a few not picked been told the isp cant extend itself to accept them.

No doubt this will appeal to some people but for me it would be a case of "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)".
