IPTV subscription?

Hi all,
Just ordered a MAG256.

For watching 'normal' channels (UK / IRL / anything extra), approx 30 - 50 channels, what do people recommend? Not too much into Movies as I use Kodi for that, mainly general / news channels (not into sport / movies)

Ideally something I could pay monthly for.

Many thanks.

Why wouldn't you just install a dish and aerial and get the "normal" uk and irish channels legitimately for free?

Not possible in this building - you think I wouldn't have otherwise?

I just got mine installed. Iptv present. Going good so far. Far more channels than I need. When football starts is when it will pay for its self.

Does anyone else have an issue with it freezing for a few seconds or taking a while to get going when you turn it on?

I've have it running off a zgemma in our sun room. There's a home plug in there and we get download speeds of 70mb-100mb, we're very close to the cabinet.

I think we should close this thread so icdg has something to do. As moderation goes this is not very good moderation. In fact this is simply intolerance.

Hastenadd banned for 48 hours. I'm not sure where that comment came from in the context of this thread, but it is not allowed in any Boards.ie thread to post on the topic of questioning moderation decisions.

IPTV is not illegal per se. But providers must have the required licenses to supply channels.

I was just looking for folks who might have witnessed similar and how they might or might not have got over the problem. Its tenuous how you phrase yourself as to how rules can be met or broken. Obviously I didn't want to break rules so what I said I thought was inside the rules. I find this forum first tries to identify users, who may or may not, be using a service that legally could be challenged rather than help with a technical question. And I wonder must everyone be identified as to who they are, what type of system they use before advice will be provided. I was just hoping that folks would provide their experience with IPTV and best TV settings. As it happens my TV is a 40pfl8605. Thanks and once again apologies for showing frustration

Hastentoadd,

When a thread has been closed you cannot go and hijack another unrelated thread to reply to the closed one, or to question/discuss moderation for that matter.

Discussion of moderation is forbidden throughout Boards. That is not a local rule for this forum or the Cable and Digital forums.

This thread must now return to its original topic.

Hastentoadd warned.

If any user replies to this post this thread will be closed and the OP can try again.

If Hastentoadd is the one to reply to this post, he takes a seven day ban with no further warning and the next one will be a permanent ban.

Back on topic
