ToTV users interested in UK data after the end of UK transition period should take note of the below impact to ToTV v2 (containing both UK and EU27 data).

ToTV users that do not require UK data, can continue using the DSB ESMA ToTV/uToTV service (ToTV v1). Please see full details on ToTV v1 impact here.
