Thread: television x freeview


Forum: FREEVIEW

has anyone else noticed that after the 10 minute television x freeview at 11pm, the screen stays on for about a minute before it goes blank. at first when topup tv just came out. it went blank straight after 10 minutes. is it a tactic to hook the viewer, so they will get more subscribers.

    I felt I needed to research this topic to provide you with an answer
    The same happened on sky digital last night after one of the freeviews it stayed on for an extra 10-15 seconds
    mind you i only needed the first 2 minutes of the freeview for the research i was doing

    Once I watched the freeview, and after it, the channel stayed on and didnt go off, no1 believed me, so they had me taking pictures of the TV with my digi cam

    The cable people mustve forgot to turn it off?
