Hi Mike,

Like you are, I'm going to hang on 'til Top Up TV ceases on 30/31 October (just over 6 weeks to go!)

In the meantime, I'm going to look into the VuTV subscription route - the programming...

Your hunch was correct, Mike.

The National Geographic lozenge has now disappeared from the Top Up TV menu system.

When ESPN closes, is G.O.L.D. likely to fill the 11-00hrs to 14-00hrs weekend slot too (provided of course Top Up TV does carry on 'til November)?

TV Favourites - any chance of tidying the menu?

Just wondering if Top Up TV will tidy its TV Favourites menu / lozenges now that Sky Sports has ceased and ESPN has just over 4 weeks left to run?

Sky Sports1&2 + ESPN can be removed and I think it...

I think Mike is referring to Premier Sports being suitable for Top Up TV because it is a niche product. It would be ideal for DTT because it is a stand-alone channel in the mould of ESPN.

Premier Sports TV would certainly be an option, provided Top Up TV can retain Channel 34 in its entirety. The content is quite similar to ESPN, with a mix of North American & U.K. sports, so it would...

Hi,

I reckon Sky will already be doing well on DTT without the need for a Picnic type pay TV service.

There is Sky Sports 1&2 as pay TV, Sky News, Pick & Challenge as free-to-view channels....
