What happened to Sure TV?

When did Sure TV close down?

Services delivered to Sure TV via your internet feed ceased to be available on Monday 1st February 2016.

Why was Sure TV closed down?

With new online media delivery systems coming on-stream the Sure TV subscriber base fell dramatically. It was no longer economical to deliver the service, especially on a free of charge basis.

Will the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) still be available?

Yes, but some functionality will be lost. Channels delivered via the internet connection will disappear from the EPG and series link record will no longer work. The +24hrs option will no longer be available.

However channels delivered via Freeview will maintain full EPG detail. Please note that depending on your location some “non Freeview” channels (eg: Dave) may continue to appear in your EPG, but will not be viewable.

Some channels are just black screens
Certain extra channels were provided over your Sure Broadband connection until 1 February 2016. Although they may continue to appear in your EPG, the channels are no longer available. A list of Freeview channels that are available in your area can be found here.

Will my monthly bill change?
