I think there are probably hidden costs involved in Top Up TV broadcasting Sky Sports 1&2 via DTT which go beyond the wholesale purchase price.

Like Sky, BT isn't going to give Top Up TV a free...

This is just a hypothetical pondering, I'm wondering if a service like Premier Sports TV could be fitted into the Top Up TV schedule?

To be fair, obtaining permission to broadcast Sky Sports is a massive coup for Top Up TV, and now that they have rights to show 1&2, they certainly won't want to lose it in the future.

So I think...

Hi,

I own the Thomson 6021 500gb receiver, which, in my opinion, has been reliable from day one.

The only faults I can note, is that the box (very occasionally) locks-up into a blank screen when...

Do Top Up TV pay carriage costs to BT Vision for the use of channels 41 & 42 - perhaps that's reflected in their charges for SS1&2?

Are these definately 24 hours slots by the way?
