HomeChoice with its TV and broadband packages has been offering TV over broadband since 2000, but only in a limited area of mainly Greater London. Tiscali has now announced the launch that should see the service available to up to 10 million homes around the UK by the end of 2007.
The TV service will offer more than eighty channels including Sky One which was removed from the Virgin Media channel line up earlier this year. Packages will start at £19.99 rising in price according to the combination of broadband and TV channels chosen.
With the roll-out of the service to much larger areas we should see the take-up increase dramatically from the current 50,000 subscribers which is a drop in the ocean compared to the almost 1.5 million broadband customers Tiscali already has.
