Delighted to offer a 120 Gb Sony PS3, with two controllers and game as a prize from Magnet Web TV
Irish broadband provider, Magnet Networks, has launched a free web-based live TV service with Twitter and Facebook integration, making it a first for people in Ireland.
Available at http://www.magnetwebtv.ie, the no-strings-attached service offers live streaming of five Irish channels for free, regardless of provider.
As long as you have a 1Mbit broadband connection all you have to do is to log on to magnetwebtv.ie and register to watch RTE1, Network 2, TV3, TG4 and 3e live from any web browser.
No TV license fees, no cable subscription, no contract, no monthly subscription fee and no software downloads.
From the same web page, users also have the option of running their Twitter and Facebook feeds to comment, tweet and watch updates alongside their TV stream. Similar to other online services, users need only register their full name, username, password and email to avail of the service.
For a monthly fee of €3.99, a total of 21 channels are offered to Magnet broadband subscribers, including BBC’s full range of channels, MTV, VH1 and kids channels Nickelodeon, Nick Toons and Nick Junior.*
Mark Kellett, CEO of Magnet: “There’s no obligation to sign up to Magnet. We are however hoping that people will be so impressed with the service that they will want more and sign up to our broadband packages to avail of additional channels together with our great speeds. But there’s nothing to stop people just availing of the free five.”
