JT Global, the Channel Islands telco, has launched a subscription-free broadband TV service based on the YouView platform. Consumers will receive a free YouView STB when they sign up for a JT broadband package. Alternatively, they can choose to purchase the STB for a one-off fee of £299.
Barna Kutvolgyi, Managing Director of JT’s Global Consumer Business, said his company is offering a “cost effective alternative to subscription based TV services”.
“We are very proud to be among the first UK Internet service providers to introduce YouView, which is backed by the leading national TV channels, so bringing a new way of watching television to more homes,” he stated.
