All the 'shopping' channels you mention should be generally available on any free to air receiver - even budget ones. You will need an internet connection present near your TV - will work without internet, but not if you want the streaming / internet features.
Cost for full set up & full demonstration will be €199.00. This is based on internet connection being present under the TV. If this is not the case please review below:
1. Wifi dongle - €15.00 This may be o.k, but does depend on each individual property, in terms of signal within house. As a general rule of thumb, when streaming - a hard wire connection (speed wise) is always better than wifi.
2. Home network plugs: One plug next to the router, the other near the TV, sends internet signal around your mains network (if still on same power circuit) €70 euros.
3. Hard wire, cat 5 connection: Cable through your telecommunications ducts from router to where TV is, €60 - €80 cable (cat 5) and labour.
We are presently making final tweaks to software on these receivers - if you would like to confirm your interest with an email to the office [email protected] we can advise you as soon as equipment is available - all being well next week or two.

So if you have community wi fi how will this work? Presumably you need a wi fi dongle and the speeds will be slower? Also are you saying you can get up to date movies free via this machine? If so is it very complex to work?

Thanks James - responded to your email.
NALLEN - It may work through the community wifi. You can use these devices with a wifi dongle, though they are very sensitive to the signal strength & reception speeds with this method. Bottom line no 100% guarantee, internal signal dependent.
The Icefims movie app allows for quite a lot of films, many upto date or recently released as well as lots of older films - It's a free service, however there is the odd stream which doesn't work, but generally for a freebie with access to thousands of films it's good. BBCiplayer & ITV player's also has recently shown films.
With the community wifi it will depend on your speed - if no one else is streaming then you'll be fine - however doubt your shared speed is that fast & you would need to check your speeds at different times of the day to see if viable - need 2 meg + you can check on www.speedtest.net
Is it complex to use - no, if you stick to the basics, satellite reception and the additional plugins. However if you start fiddling these devices are anything but simple.
