# Sep 1, 10:44 AM by Mick
As we reported back in July, ntl Telewest, as from today, is allowing any customer, new or existing, free digital tv with any of their home phone services taken out, starting from ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£11 per month which includes line rental and unlimited local and national weekend calls.
The Free digital service package will consist of 36 TV Channels, including, Sky One, BBC’s digital line-up, E4 and Film4, music, news and entertainment. On Demand, will also be available.
ntl Telewest say customers can upgrade their TV packages and add premium movie and sports channels and a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) and high definition TV. Note that these are only available to Telewest customers, but ntl state that they plan to release the PVR and high definition TV services, to their customers by the end of 2006.
Neil Berkett, chief operating officer at ntl Telewest, said:
“This is a great deal for consumers who can now sit back and enjoy digital TV and on demand services without worrying about expensive upfront or monthly costs.
This deal will make people question the value they are getting from their existing phone or TV supplier. Why pay BT for a phone line when you can get free digital TV for the same price with cable?
Cable is the best way to enjoy a better digital TV service and this new package gives consumers great value, more TV choice and flexibility, beating the competition hands down.”
