I haven't heard anything aobut this one, but I presume it'd be the same as
sky offer? browse the net using your remote .. interective tv .. bleh ..
Anyhow, rumours that I've heard are not nice .. concerning multichannel..

inforce.. instead of stopping individual householders, they supposidly just
stop new broadcasters setting up shop.
Alot of supposings here .. does anyone know the sure facts?
I presume you know about esats suft no limits?
