Great Buy

Easy to use, and good design. Transformed my TV as i did not want to continue paying for Sky

Follow-up review about Freeview services

I regret that the VU TV subscription service ends on the 22nd of October 2015, but still find the other Internet streaming TV channels are worth checking. It's possible that more channels will be added, so when I do future autotunes I will look for these services as they become available. I'm hoping some will be subscription channels and that the TV Player freebies will be developed into a subscription service on Freeview, not just on the PC.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money

Worth every penny

The VUTV free month trial alone was worth every penny. Even if the Comedy channel was unavailable. The TV Player lets me see Revelation TV. I liked Youtube search finding me so many wonderful results to view and to record. NB use your VCR or DVD Recorder's XP rec. mode when you can... Freeview gets way over 100 channels and this gets me the data channels, too. Internet streaming quality can be in SD or in HD quality such as for Youtube content. Select on-screen setting for this to happen or select HD only content. The box offers live broadcasts, but no timeshift buffer to some hard drive, so view and record to your VCR or DVD Recorder whatever you can as soon as you can. Upgrade your Freeview installation to get the best of the SD and HD and Data channels, especially with consideration to Winter conditions. Get whatever Data channel you want to watch ready before your fav TV show comes on to make sure the Internet stream works OK first. Also consider buying the Freesat version if you've already got a Sky dish installed. It's useful to have some form of backup to Freeview reception and retuning problems. Use Google search for Freeview channel updates to learn more of what's coming and the Freeview website to confirm which channels you should be getting. Check the EPG TV Guide for the week ahead as well as the VUTV EPG TV Guide for its current time for Now and Next. Consider VUTV's fav childrens TV channels and their TV series, not just the main TV channels on Freeview. These could help you decide to get a VUTV subscription or not. Freeview has evolved, so you might as well upgrade as soon as you can.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, select favourite channels Cons: requires excellent Freeview reception, sometimes the screen freezes playback, switch off and on to reset, VUTV Comedy channel unavailable?, VUTV switches to its first channel

Only one thing missing - no ITV Player / The Hub

Pleased with the box and it worked immediately as Plug and Play which is always a bonus. Sadly, we thought we would also get ITV Player or what is now known as The Hub as well with this box so that for us, is a disappointment. I can't understand how BBC iPlayer is included but not The Hub? Other than that, it's perfectly fine as the TV we brought back with us from Cyprus does not have Freeview inbuilt.

Pros: Ease to use Cons: None

Good value for money

I found the box easy to set up and simple to use. Works well as secondary aerial, giving crystal clear viewing, with all of the great features and apps you would expect with such a box. I found it easy to use, and I'm not very technical myself, so very user friendly. I found only one fault with the design and that was the inability to use it to convert TV to a smart TV, which whilst it is capable of this, it needs to physically be plugged into your router. Not many people have their router near their TV, and perhaps it should be wireless for this feature. The guide is great, instructions simple, and overall, it's worth the money simply for being so user friendly. Highly recommend.
