BCI awards license to Boxer

"The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland has awarded the three national digital terrestrial television contracts to the Boxer DTT consortium. Boxer includes Denis O'Brien's Communicorp and BT." [Source RTE]

Listening to Boxer on the radio this morning, the whole deal sounds pretty impressive. Aspects that appealed to me included the fact that it's 'pay as you go' so you're not tied into any kind of subscription. Secondly, if you have multiple TVs in your home you can buy multiple Boxer cards with different channels purchased on them. You can even take these cards with you to stick into whatever Boxer set top box you like - pretty awesome.

But like everything, there's a cloud to the silver lining, some of which can be read about here.
