Full Fibre ISP BrawBand in Scotland Launch Pay TV Service

Inverness-based broadband ISP BrawBand (HighNet), which currently sells home broadband services over CityFibre’s new gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network in locations such as Inverness, Glasgow and Renfrewshire, has today launched a new pay TV service via Netgem’s platform.

Netgem has already been widely adopted by a growing number of ISPs, particularly smaller alternative networks and TalkTalk. The set-top-boxes that they provide – Netbox HD and Netbox 4K – tend to be similar to some of those supplied by rival video streaming companies, including the usual array of premium content (sports), apps (Amazon, BTSport, hayu, Rakuten TV, YouTube etc.), live TV channels (Freeview / Freeview Play) and catch-up content.

Sadly, the announcement doesn’t clarify precisely what customers can expect to receive or how much extra it will cost them, on top of their existing packages. Alternatively, you could grab the Netgem 4K Box from Amazon for £123 one-off and have much the same experience, albeit without the added support of an ISP.

David Siegel, Managing Director of BrawBand, said:

“BrawBand is delighted to be working alongside Netgem to launch our TV service. The range of content provided from Netgem, with a particular focus on Scottish football, should really appeal to our Scottish customer base. The fact it’s at an affordable price point for an end user, made signing up as a Netgem partner a simple decision for us to make.

Our customers will be able to confidently stream their TV service without any fear of disruption. As we say: “It’s Braw not to Buffer.”

End.

    Worth remembering Brawband still have a 1TB monthly FUP on their broadband services.

    1. David Alldritt says:

      Hi Ken, That FUP was scrapped a fair while ago. There’s no limit.

    2. Gudgie says:

      Not any more they dont

    3. John says:

      They removed their fixed 1TB FUP and replaced it with an AUP.

      “Usage Limits and Restrictions

      BrawBand’s products are not subject to allowances or data transfer caps. However, parts of the network are shared between users and any irresponsible or highly excessive usage by one customer will be investigated to ensure that the quality of service delivered to all customers can be maintained. If a customer is transferring extremely large quantities of data on a regular basis we will, wherever possible, make adjustments to the network to prevent this from impacting other users. If such adjustments are not technically possible BrawBand reserves the right to limit the customer’s bandwidth or to move them to a more suitable and uncontended service which may have a higher cost.

    The marketing on the website is pretty cringe worthy. Aye, just cos they’re “Scottish” they’re going to be better. No doubt it’ll appeal to some folk of a political persuasion and perhaps that’s the sort of folk they are aiming for.

    Thankfully, most Scots aren’t as narrow-minded, and will go with the provider that’s best for service and value for money.

    “The television, the telephone, the pedal bicycle, the steam engine, golf, penicillin. There’s an awful lot that us Scots have invented but there’s one thing that we didn’t – broadband.

    This explains then, why most broadband is mince. But what if the Scots had invented broadband, surely then it would be a hell of a lot better?

    The answer to your question is yes it would – so much better in fact that we’d have to create a brand name that only the Scots would understand, to put the others off the scent and keep it all for ourselves. Keep scrolling to discover why BrawBand makes regular broadband look like an absolute dobber.”
