TalkTalk launches TV Store, subscription-free streaming service

Wednesday, April 27th 2016

The launching of TalkTalk TV Store marks the entry of UK ISP TalkTalk into the Internet video streaming service sector. The service is a pay-as-you-go service based on the Blinkbox platform that TalkTalk acquired from Tesco over a year ago (in January of 2015), which also brought in for them 75,000 broadband Tesco subscribers.

The service based on the Blinkbox technology claims to offer over 7,000 film and TV programmes on a subscription-free streaming service and over multiple devices. The company said the TalkTalk TV Store is for everyone, but existing customers will be most benefited.

TalkTalk customers can buy or rent a show on their TV set and then to watch it, move over to a mobile device, plus the existing login can be used to access the service. They can choose to download an episode at a time, or the entire set. The new service is aimed to compete with similar rival services like Amazon Prime Video or Now TV.

TalkTalk viewers registering to their account will be able to login up to five devices. They can simultaneously watch one show or movie, while downloading or streaming another on a laptop tablet or mobile. Service to former Blinkbox customers will not change and the same remains for personal digital libraries of theirs.

Aleks Habdank, of TalkTalk TV, said the launch of the service is a step forward in their mission to offer best content at lowest price, customers paying for only what is watched, to help switch devices easily and to enjoy shows or movies on their own terms.
