TalkTalk TV customers can now buy and rent their favourite films and shows via the ISP’s TV Store – a rebranded version of the popular blinkbox film and TV streaming service which it bought from Tesco last year.
TalkTalk is offering anyone signing up to its YouView-based Plus TV package six months free access to Netflix. The package, which costs £10 per month plus line rental. includes broadband, calls and a mobile SIM as well as access to six Sky entertainment channels, including Sky One, Sky Living and Sky Arts.
The UK’s advertising watchdog has banned adverts from TalkTalk and Now TV internet TV services over concerns that they misled potential customers about the amount of content available.
Yesterday’s announcement that its shareholders have agreed a new, five-year funding settlement is a big win for YouView and its growing band of users.
All seven shareholders in YouView, including the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, have agreed to continue funding the connected TV platform for a further 5 years.
