Enjoy Christmas without the worry of cost.
Dean Moody, chief commercial officer at WiFi SPARK, said: “We all know that the past two years have been exceptionally difficult for the NHS and for the people who depend on it.
“The Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing, exceptional demand for services have necessitated new restrictions on who can access wards and visit those patients who need to be admitted for treatment.
“That has made modern, digital entertainment and communications systems more important than ever before, and we wanted to recognise this with an extended, free-TV offer.
“We hope that this will enable patients to enjoy some of the special programmes that we all look forward to at Christmas and New Year, without having to worry about the cost of joining the celebrations.”
