Listen in, listen Ian!
While looking into PVRs more last night following the replies to my post
yesterday I noticed that a lot of them have a viewing card slot for Top Up
TV. I looked into that a bit more and noticed that you can get Setanta
Sports too and that looked a decent deal for £9.99 a month - not all the
English games, but a load of Scottish, Dutch, French and Italian games too.
Lots of lovely football basically, and without giving any money to Sky at
any point. Looking around the Top Up TV website though, it seems that
there's no way to subscribe without buying their own PVR, which I don't
want to do. Why do companies do that? Being able to subscribe isn't
something that's going to make me change my mind about which box to buy,
but if I can, I will. What's in it for them to just turn down my money?

"Note that as of January 2007, Top Up TV has stopped selling their non-Anytime service, so even if you get a CAM, you can't buy a Top UP TV subscription card. However, if you're looking to get Setanta Sports over Freeview on a suitable TV or set-top box, you'll need a CAM.

You can get a CAM ready for Setanta from the following online stores: Comet or Argos (Search "Setanta"). Alternatively, you can get these direct from Setanta Sport or from Ebay.co.uk. "
