UK Broadband provider and one of the founders of the Youview IPTV project, have announced the launch of Concert TV. The service which can be accessed from your Youview box gives full access to music concerts from £4.00.

In a dig at the recent shambolic London concert of Justin Bieber, Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director of TalkTalk said, “Music fans have recently been short changed by artists turning up to stage hours late for performances.”
Naughty Justin. But Tristia explains that On-Demand cuts out temperamental pop stars, ” With Concert TV the stars are available to watch when you want them”.
