For those of you with freeview, but wanting a PVR the quality of Sky+ and access to on-demand sports, movies, music video's and television programs, the answer could well be here... BT Vision.
I have been following BT's development of this service closely for probably around a year now and I must say it looks impressive and is certainly the next stage after Homechoice for IPTV services.
It should be near-nationwide available and is completely free as standard (excluding a £90 one time connection and installation charge).
The only bummer is you are required to have BT Total Broadband to use the service at present, which isnt actually all that bad especially if you plan on using Wifi on a laptop at any time.
They will be showing premiership matches via Setanta Sports next season, as part of the new deal Setanta have managed to screw out of the FA (instead of it being good for fans, its worse as it means 40% of matches will be ppv at maybe £15 a match).
Personally, im too happy with Sky+ and all the channels, but for someone who doesnt need all the channels, but still wants both a PVR and access to extra programming and a very low monthly fee, then is the perfect solution.
Its certainly a strong competitor for Top-up TV imho. Finally we have another intermediate option in the digital television market, pleaced between Freeview/Freesat From Sky and Sky/NTL Telewest.
