A customer with an EE TV service wishes to leave, what happens to that TV service?
AnswerThey have freeview which goes through their own kind of set top box. The channels are the same as freeview and people need to live in a freeview area. So all someone has to do is plug their Ariel into their TV (if it has a Freeview receiver) or buy a seperate receiver for between £10-£30 and they’ll get the same channels they have been enjoying via EE.
What is EE TV?
The set-top box is free to any EE customers who already subscribe to EE Home Broadband and use EE, Orange or T-Mobile as their mobile phone provider. Accepting it automatically opts you into a new 18 month contract for your broadband and home telephone.
EE TV is a set-top box that not only offers Freeview but also catch-up services and more.
The EE TV box comes with 4 HD tuners built-in meaning it’s able to transmit live Freeview TV to four devices at once. As long as the mobile or tablet is on the home broadband connection (an EE one) then the signal can be sent over Wi-Fi to other devices.
Beware – you have to commit to buying all of EE’s other services in order to get one!
Basically – you do not need this. If your TV is fairly modern, it should have a Freeview tuner built in. This will provide the same channels. If you want extra functionality such as recording television programmes, then opt to purchase a media device. Save even more by getting the device at somewhere like Argos, Ebuyer or Currys and get cashback!
