Those living in a Freeview area can now receive Top Up TV services via Thomson’s DTI2300 set-top box. The service is built-in, which means that Top Up TV can be sold in store for the first time.
The box is likely to cost around £79.99, while the Top Up TV service costs £20 for the initial connection and £7.99 a month after that. There’s no contract to sign, so users can subscribe to the service on a month-by-month basis.
The box can receive standard digital Freeview channels, as well as the 10 extra Top Up TV channels. The service is provided via a conditional access module, and customers simply plug in a card to get the service up and running.
