[access-uk] Re: Tune In Radio app for iPhone and iPod Touch

The Freeview upgrade is called YouView. It's Freeview free to air
broadcasts that you're used to, plus a WiFi connection so you can access
the last 7 days of lots of TV channels including BBC and Channel 4. 

Freeview won't die. YouView, whose launch has been put back to next year
now, will be an additional service. I'm led to believe it will be more
accessible.

Thanks for your words of wisdom G, I had figured out all those options
long ago, and had really settled on the Tune In radio app until my
dreams were shattered the other night, and an American told me I needed
to find an alternative stream if I wanted to hear the game.  It's really
not important in the grand scheme of things, but it is a sort of
soap-box I've got these days about sport and greed in general.  Why
should we have to purchase everything to cover all eventualities me
wonders?

But is it true that Freeview is going down the tubes, and being replaced
with something else?  With that in mind, and the way our "dear"
government doesn't know its arse from its elbow, I'm not buying anything
else digital until we know it's going to last more than a couple of
years, is accessible, and won't cost the earth for the privilege.  See,
told you I have a soap-box about it, just don't get me started so I can
really rant!! (lol).

Hi

three suggestions that cost money sadly:
On your sky box you could take out a multi room option and listen to the
radio in another room or on headphones on a portable t.v., so you need
to upgrade sky subscription and purchase a cheapo portable telly.

Bog standard freeview boxes are not too expensive and if you know the
channel numbers for the radio stations you can enter them direct on a
remote
- you still need to buy a cheapo telly though.

If you have a sky dish with a twin lmb you could get a freesat box which
means you can listen to the radio feeds on the second box via a cheapo
telly.

All these solutions require spending money but I think that apart from
the freesat option they will be less expensive than buyin a specialist
box for the blind, you know the one I mean available from a well known
organisation in Kings cross.

Cheers

G
