4oD now on Homechoice

Overnight Homechoice became Tiscali on my set top box. As well as a re-brand there’s been an upgrade to aspects of the service, particularly the video on demand. As well as replay (mainly for BBC shows) C1, which has recent and older series on demand, there’s now Free OD, Tiscali’s on demand service, which looks and feels (and probably will replace) very much liek C1. And finally ..drum roll.. 4oD is now on homechoice, and most of the UK content is free, the only thing you have to pay for is the big US import shows. And all the films are free too! In a letter to all homechoice users last week, they talked about launching a new PVR service in June, I’m not sure if that would be a hardware thing or just the ability to record stuff and suck it down the wire later?

Also Crystal palace was on Relocation Relocation last night. And we’ve got a fancy new bakery just opened up.. a proper bakery, selling real tasty bread. Yum.

    Having read about 4OD I felt a sense of pride having recruited a part of the team. Intersting blog, i’ll be sure to keep checking it out.
    I’ve worked for a lot of New Media teams within broadcasters, C4 really are a great bunch.

    Thanks for this. I’m buggered if I can find out whether 4OD is free on the tiscali/4OD site! I would assume it would prompt me if the content I chose to watch was at a cost.
