I'm not talking about a website. I'm saying I thought the delivery would be through broadband. Interface could be very similar to any of the current set top boxes.
I do realise there would be issues with bandwidth if everyone accessed TV this way. Suppose proper fibre could handle it.
You could get a PS4? They're not too expensive, but I have one for gaming so the price of it as an IPTV wasn't a consideration to me (that's just a bonus with it, and it plays DVD's).
It streams wireless and has customised Apps for SkyGo, Netflix, Amazon Prime, NowTV, YouTube, Dailymotion, All4, WWE Network, Twitch, and others. PS3 had
the RTE Player, but only SkyGo has the Irish channels live now.
Saorview can be gotten with a little indoor aerial like this
depending on your area. That's only £18, and you would simply plug it into the back of your tv and if you are close enough to a transmitter you'll have all the Irish tv and radio stations.
And there's always the option of an internet streaming box. But that option isn't to be discussed here, and does require 'effort'. The options I mentioned above are plug in and instant watch live tv.
