Is there any such thing as IPTV in the UK?
I don't understand BT Vision - it requires Freeview.
The success of IPTV in France is due to 2 factors:
- ADSL2 - with 24Mbps, it's easy for ISPs to use QoS to reserve 2Mbps for TV streaming
- price : 30/35€ a month for 20Mbps ADSL, phone, and IPTV, sometimes line rental too. Depending on the ISP, the TV packages will vary, Orange recently got hold on some Ligue 1 footy games I think. But AFAIK, it's actual live streamed TV and if some of the new boxes include a Freeview/TNT tuner that's just a bonus.
Sometimes I despair when I view Free.fr's offers and compare them to what we can get in the UK :/
