Video Networks Limited (HomeChoice) set top box, manufactured by Video Networks Limited, 2000-2006.

Starting with a small network in north London, HomeChoice provided Britain’s first video-on-demand (VOD) service. The HomeChoice service, launched in 2000, allowed television viewers to watch programmes delivered using a broadband internet connection. By 2003 HomeChoice’s services had expanded to include most of the channels available on Freeview, a free to air digital television service. The HomeChoice service was rebranded as Tiscali in 2006, and then again as Talk-Talk TV in 2009.
