    Ex-Pat TV.

    I had this as a free trial over the weekend,streamed through my internet connection.

    I was very impressed with the variety of sports channels.

    Reasonably priced.

    My question is this:

    Has anyone used this service with the set top box?

    A friend of mine had the free trial and sent me the link and password to try it out.
    The picture was good with very little/No buffering.
    I thought the channels were limited ( most can be found on Filmon for free ) . One of the good things about Expat TV was the On-demand Catch-up service which saves you staying up half the night to watch a program you like.
    I will still be using Kodi and downloading Movies/TV Programs for my viewing though as it meets my viewing requirements

    yep, occasional buffering but not enough to bother me. great set of channels for a Brit who likes TV and the on demand thing is great. The only reason I haven't got it permanently yet is because I found it difficult to stay on one channel, I'd flick and flick and flick.

    I DL torrents of what I want to watch but i think sooner or later I'll get the set top box. Theres a sport/movie one that's a bit extra too, sky movies, and bt sports etc. Not sure I'd pay for both packages though...
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    I've got an old Stalker addon and is working fine for FREE...I just don't install the up-dates

    Some-time takes a few clicks to get it going though

    26 quid on Amazon and do the rest yourself for free - tons of instructions out there.

    And if you are too dumb to do that, you're probably too dumb to maintain it anyway.

    Yep, correct. Recently upgraded my wifi (TOT fibre optic), and the IPTV / Expat TV system works great so far.

    I watch Stalker on a 2Mb ADSL line.

    OK the picture quality isn't HD, but it doesn't buffer.

    That's in the office, Boo.

    50Mb fibre at home.

    The 100 is way too pricey.

    So you think you can connect an Amazon Fire TV stick to a router by plugging an ethernet cable into your TV?

    I can't tell if you're drunk or stupid, but on balance you're probably both.
