    For satellite?
    You don't get many channels any more on 28.2e.

    I seen various discussions so was just wondering what's reliable now. Plenty of IPTV providers on adverts but would like a recommendation before trying it out.

    Ah right, thought you were talking about a satellite box.
    Don't use IPTV an awful lot but I use flawless IPTV on my phone/firestick for the occasional game and it's fine.
    I set a lad up in work with a mag box and an IPTV sub last year and he raves about it, more expensive than flawless though.

    Neither. Would probably be looking at a box fully loaded for handiness.

    The cheap subs just aren't worth it tbh.
    A few mates have the cheaper ones but always end up over at mine for the games, whether it be on sky BT bien or some other foreign channel. I love the option on mine, it's like the old aertel teletex where it lists all the games and channels number that they are on.

    I must admit, I love bien sports. Not for Andy Gray and Richard keys who seem to be each talking to two different walls. It's actually funny how they don't answer each other's question and Keys always seems to have a wobble. But they show goals from all games at ht and straight after full time.

    You'd pick up a mag box for about €80, piece of p1ss to set up for IPTV. The hard bit is finding a good/reliable provider, there's so many of them out there and a lot are cowboys.

    No it's not cheap amd its 6 months. I think my renewal will be about 300 Or 250 for the next year. A good bit more expensive.
    I can actually justify that price with all its used.
    I got the box off same fellow so was 350 all in first year.
    I've seen subs go for as cheap as 10/20 A year that have been rubbish.
    Yet to hear of anybody happy

    What type of box are you using @Mico if you don't mind me asking?
    None of my business and it's your money but that provider is ripping you off if he's charging you that much for a 12 month sub.

    It's a mag box.
    I know it's pricey but it works streamless although I was one of the people that lost it for a few weeks when Interpol shut them down in Jan.
    I don't go directly to provider so that's where the expense is I would think.
    Also think my box is locked down atm.

    I wouldn't be as clued up on mag boxes as I am on others but I have a bit of experience of them and I'd doubt it's locked down.
    Mag box and a good reliable sub for 12 months should be no more than €150 imo.

    I tried change server and after required reboot it resets back to original.
    I'd probably be able reimage it but would rather not have to go down that road.

    That price is far too high, when you consider the underlying risk of losing the service overnight etc.

    I’ve my own box from when the Sat lines were available and I’ve put IPTV on it. My line for 2 boxes for everything for the year is £75. The group I am in, a few lads from this site are in too and they are perfect. They have over 5k members . I’ve no affliction with them at all but if you want some more info drop me a message and I’ll give you a link to their site.

    I believe I'm using the same crowd. A lot cheaper than some of the prices of above. Extended my sub and got a free extra line the last time.

    Jesus how did you swing that? I've to extend mine before the end of July. They have a sale on the lines at the moment. 40 pound for the year. Can't go wrong there.
