Thanks - so you've never had to restart the box or anything at all?

Can anyone give me some feedback on the reliability of it and how much "work" you need to put in to maintain it and have it all working perfectly?

I use FireTV 1st Gen box with everything and its fine, but IPTV (currently Limitless through Smarters) is not entirely as reliable as Sky. I frequently need to restart the box or the app when things stick, and use a VPN when the football is on. This is fine for me, but may be a pain to recommend to him as these simple things will require lengthy phone calls with instruction for him.
Any feedback regarding maintenance measures with the Formulerer box?
I did a 2 day trial and that was pretty good. The football against Bournemouth was mostly fine although I did have to change stream a couple of times at the beginning, LL switched the source after 5/6 mins and it was decent from then on.

The pause, rewind, catch up and mytvonline2 menu etc was impressive and way beyond what I expected from this type of set up.

I must admit I have returned my z8. On cancelling virgin I got a crazy discount on the new vvip package and as I was looking for a new phone contract too that’s worked out very well so signed another 12 month deal. The z8 would have nothing to do for 3 months so returned and will look again early August for the football

Impressive though if you want something like that and I had no issues with reliability. Thanks again to the advice on here guys

Thanks. I think my father in law is essentially looking to me to advise him the best way to go three months so that Sky etc offer him a better introductory deal. Sounds like the Formuler box may be the answer.

Thanks. How often for other reasons? Or what are the other reasons for needing to?

(Sorry, you can tell me to f off if too many questions, its just I'm desperately trying to find something to recommend him where I won't be called every five minutes for some spurious "error"!)

Thanks, and update is, I assume, as easy as clicking the word "update"?

My SD subscription has just ended. Generally very happy apart from the odd buffering scenario and having to reload occasionally. Thinking of trying one of the other ones. Are Limitless and Flawless the best alternatives out there?

They’re all much of a muchness in all fairness, but have at least two is my recommendation as if one falls over the other will get you out the shit.

Which is the bigger of the two? They are always going to target them from the top down

I would say Limitless and Flawless are the two bigger but the donkey is more than an adequate provider.

One assumes if offers are going to come about, now is the time in the next few weeks.

I just signed a friend up to SD and used the "Welcome Back" code. I think he got 10% off, so £57 for the year. If you pay with bitcoin you get an extra 3 months. I have no clue about doing that.

Spend an extra couple of quid and get on a decent provider.

You'll save yourself a lot of hassle in the long run.

I know the pound has taken a bit of a hit,but Donkey is 65$ a year. If your mate got 10 per cent discount he would have paid 58.50 $ approx £47
Mines up 1st July.

Just looked on the site and the subscription page says 65$ and the membership renewal page says 65£ Now confused.
