KC has launched it’s own-branded version of YouView – KC TV – which can be added to KC broadband deals for £12/month.
KC TV gives you access to all of the YouView features such as streamlined access to on-demand programmes and access to premium pay-per-view apps like Now TV.
Instead of having to pay up front for the cost of the Humax DTR-T1000 YouView box (normally £299) you just pay an £12 extra each month. That said there is a one-off a £30 fee for set-up and connection.
Punters who add the service to their KC Home bundle will have their monthly broadband allowance tripled to 110GB so you’ve got a bit more data for streaming on-demand content.
Those who add it to Home Xtra will see the normal 300GB monthly usage cap become unlimited. Unlimited broadband and a free YouView box for an extra £12/month doesn’t sound like a bad deal at all.
No word yet on whether or not KC will be offering KC TV on its Lightstream fibre broadband products. We’d assume that given the superfast speeds making streaming on-demand telly a breeze KC will eventually offer this round to everyone.
KC TV can be ordered now direct from KC’s site.
