Top Up TV was a Pay TV service which launched in March 2004, operating on the digital terrestrial television platform. Top Up TV offered live premium sports channels including ESPN, Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2.

At launch, only ex-ITV Digital boxes were available, but new boxes were soon produced, bearing the "Top Up TV Ready" logo.

The standard Top Up TV Anytime set-top box was the Thomson DTI 6300 receiver, which has a twin-tuner and either a 160 gig or 250 gig hard-drive (for up to 180 hours of TV).

The Top Up TV EPG looks like this:

At the end of 2013, Top Up TV ceased broadcasting and sold its subscriber business to Sky.

Top Up TV also had CAM modules, You could use them with the CI slots on most IDTVs but they were plagued with security issues due to SECA MediaGuard being cracked.

Here is an archived version of their website from 2013.
