TalkTalk YouView offers music fans extra

Concert TV brings live music to homes with a YouView box - but customers have to pay £4 to watch on demand.

TalkTalk has launched a new music channel for TV customers with a YouView box.

Concert TV, available to all TalkTalk customers on a TV Plus package, adds a wide range of live music that viewers can watch on a pay-per-view basis.

Accessed through the On Demand menu, the full-length shows available from launch include artists such as Kylie Minogue, Blur and Radiohead.

Customers will be charged £4 each time they 'rent' a show for 48 hours.

Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk, said: "Music fans have recently been short changed by artists turning up to stage hours late for performances. With Concert TV the stars are available to watch when you want them."

Concerts available at launch include:

  • Blur: Parklive
  • Blur: Live at Hyde Park
  • Gorillaz: Demon Days Live
  • Coldplay: Live 2003
  • Kylie Minogue: Showgirl
  • Robbie Williams: Live at the Albert
  • Radiohead: The Astoria London Live
  • Depeche Mode: Live in Milan
  • Starsailor: Love Is Here Live
  • Marillion: Live from Loreley

TalkTalk customers with a YouView box can browse Concert TV by finding it in the 'All Channels' or 'Music' sections of the TalkTalk Player. Charges will appear in the TV Usage section of the customer's bill, much like LOVEFiLM Box Office movie rentals.

YouView is an internet-connected TV platform available with TalkTalk and BT broadband packages. The digital set-top box is provided free of charge, but customers are normally required to sign either a 12 or 18-month contract.

The box can also be purchased as a standalone product from retailers including John Lewis and Argos, although this option carries an upfront cost of around £250.
