Current programming includes the likes of "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives", "Doctor Who" and "Top Gear" through to FA Premier League football action and blockbuster movies.

Different packs - including "comedy", "sport" and "entertainment" are available by monthly subscription, whilst selected movies and TV series can be transferred via the rental service on Go!View.

Subscription packs are priced at £5 (7 euros) for one, £8 (11 euros) for two and £10 (14 euros) for all three packs while the rental TV is available from £1.50 (2 euros) for an episode or £2.50 (3.20 euros) per movie.
