We will be shortly offering different satellite receivers which offer a number of benefits for expatriate users. 
 
These are hybrid type devices, offering the usual HD satellite type receiver options, but with the added functionality of IPTV and Video on demand - offering the combined services of both satellite and Internet TV.
 
These internet type of services can be used worldwide, allowing the receiver to pick up UK TV in different countries, with or without a satellite dish or using both.
 
These type of receivers are fully programmable and when set up with additional software, can add a number of functions to a usual satellite receiver. Below is an example of the first set of software we are including installed with the receivers, with further updates & functionality to follow. 
 
 
Internet Streaming & IPTV Apps
 
Film on - BBC 1,2,3,4 Dave, ITV, 4, 5  & more - can stream via internet, without a dish
 
Icefilm - Database of thousands of films free to stream on your TV - all major releases
 
Ondemand - BBCiplayer, ITV player, RTE player all can be used without VPN with a Spanish standard internet connection. 
 
Cool TV guide - 7 day program guide and information (if connected to internet)
 
Network Player -- Link to your PC, stream videos, pictures & music files
 
 
The difference between this type of equipment and other IPTV services - is it's free to use, no monthly subscriptions.
 
This gives you the combined services of all the regular SD / HD channels on satellite as well as media playback / IPTV functionality.

Hi James.

 

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 for the info graham,iv sent my reply onto you via your website,my router works through the community wifi,and is excellent for streaming Netflix etc and that's with a VPN,so shouldn't be a problem at all,or we might just get you to install the large dish,box,etc,straight to the bedroom,as I want this sorted once and for all,and yourselves are the best highly recommend company about,also the only thing with Internet tv is,should you lose your community wifi,no chanels,so might be better off just going with the dish and the box,maybe with it chipped for extra chanels,anyway thanks graham.will callout to the shop the first day I arrive over shortly,many many thanks..........james.

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.
