Sky TV & Freesat rival Real Digital offer premium HD TV by Christmas launches soon

Real Digital to offer premium HD TV and ITV Player by Christmas

Sky and Freesat rival Real Digital is to launch next week with plans to introduce a 15 channel premium channel package and ITV Player before Christmas.

The Real Digital EPG will include more than 190 free to air TV channels and 70 radio channels.

Pay TV packages are expected to be added in the next three months. A sports package will include Sky Sports 1 and 2 for £25 a month and a 15 channel premium package will include HD versions of US channel Blackbelt TV and an as-yet-unamed music channel for £10 a month.

Viewers will need to activate the viewing card which is included with their receiver either over the phone or online. No contract is required and there is no minimum subscription period.

BBC iPlayer will be available via the red button at launch for those who connect their receiver to the internet via Ethernet. ITV Player is expected to be added before Christmas followed by YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

The first Real Digital receivers go on sale next week.

Personally, I cannot see this system taking off at all.

If people wanted free to air channels, then they will go for Sky TV.
If people want SKy Sports then they will go for Sky, and get Sky Sports 3 and Sky Sports 4 as well, which are not offered on Real Digital. And with a few more pounds speny on a subscription cyou can get another 40plus Sky subscrition channels like GOLD, Dave, Sky One, SyFy...
