We got On Digital at the start of November last year, only because my mam got the monthly subscription for half price (it was an offer for the staff where she works). We were going to get Sky Digital but thought we might as well get On Digital for the 12 months to see what it was like since it...

No dish required.

Too few channels.Poor signal in many places.

Didn't I do well??!! I won a prepaid On box on a QXL auction, and paid £46 for it. I was dead chuffed. Oh, and I then paid On £2 a month for six extra channels. Great! Except the channels were rubbish. (Have you seen Discovery Wings? And why are Horizons and Style sharing a channel space? Yep...

Well I haven’t actually noticed any obnoxious odours coming out of my ONdigital box, but it certainly does have some very unpleasant habits. Having said that it also has some 36GG assets, namely the extra channels. The digital television age was much anticipated and when it finally arrived...

cheap, extra channels, interactive features

not such a great choice of channels as Sky

Left alone in St Andrews after my exams - all my friends had sensibly gone home for a bit whereas I wasn’t allowed :-( the boredom rapidly set in. I work for the local museum but there’s not much work about until July and August (then there’s loads) and so consequently I have...

“Whos a Cheeky Monkey then”

published 06/08/2001

Portable piece of equipment

sometimes mosaics

ITV Digital, the new name for On-Digital is advertised by a right cheeky monkey. I work at Boxclever TV shop and the posters of the monkey are attracting people of all ages. So much so that we have signed loads of new and old people up to this newly launched product. When I say newly launched , I...

Misleading customer service, unreliable reception,...

Standard terrestrial TV just doesn't cut it anymore. You want the latest episodes of popular shows from the US, regular live coverage of major sporting events, decent films that aren't at least three years old, and music programmes that offer more than the same bunch of neatly packaged teen...

Hold the front page, Mr Editor - On-Digital has been rebranded to reappear as ITV Digital. So what of the differences? Well there's the launch of (yet) another sports channel, ONSport 1 is now “kaput”, and UK Style and UK Horizons now get a channel each instead of sharing one for part...

E4 Sky one, and men and motors

Uk Gold and the odd car program on men and motors

Although I have previously bashed ITV Digital for it's useless coverage and over priced football. I would like to say that you still have most of the channels that you can get from sky and for relatively the same price. If you yourself go for the pre paid options here is a genral opinion on the...

I bought my OnDigital box way back in July 1999... but who wants to know that? I'm sure that if you had any sense then you'd just stop reading and go out and buy a Sky Digital package that everyone (except for my father) seems to know is the better of the two. Ok ok, OnDigital isn't really all...

Let me explain. I have subscribed to Telewest (Yorkshire Cable flavour) for years with their telephone service (@£9.60 per month line rental which includes several digital TV channels), Cable Internet (Blue Yonder flavour) @£10 per month flat monthly charge) with excellent value and no problems...

“One great service”

published 19/03/2001

Easy set up, no ugly dish, free hardware

price of movie channels

I was in the market for digital TV due to the fact that I love the shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Roswell amongst others. After comparing Sky and Ondigital I plumped for the latter, even though Sky has a better range of channels and options. Why? Well if you read the small print on...

“Turns me Off”

Champions league matches

Loads, see op

Firstly let me state that I am not an OnDigital customer but I do subscribe to Sky. I feel very lucky to be in this position as I very nearly made the mistake of subscribing to OnDigital. When I wanted digital telly I looked around and decided to go for the easy option of OnDigital. Then I went...

“tuned in and vegged out”

published 22/02/2001

easy to set-up, polite staff, good channels

occasional picture breakup

For many years my television has just given me the usual 4 channels and in recent years I was even graced with the introduction of a fifth. Now it's possible to get extra channels through your normal tv ariel. That's the benefit to getting OnDigital. After picking up a box in an online auction...

Easy to install, no unsightly dishes.

Limited channels available.

Whether you have Sky or not, you will need ONdigital before long. A Sky digibox will give you access to only one channel at a time, and if you want another box you will have to pay the full price of about £300. So what are you going to do when you want to record one channel and watch another, or...
