It is disappointing that Paul Longhurst writes in the future tense about broadband access by television. It is already here, delivered down the telephone line through ADSL by Hull-based Kingston Interactive Television.
Launched in January, we offer 55 digital television channels, video on demand, Internet and e-mail, growing online shopping and a localised information service. BSkyB is now a joint partner. We too are not charging for the set-top box, which also has a browser.
Technology is running ahead and the set-top box will change later this year. We are ahead of the game – Paul Longhurst should pay us a visit.
