    Ok ive seen this glorified freeview reciever and im wondering if anyone else has one. It claims to get tons more channels that the standard freeview etc and even come with a dish?

    Any thoughts???

    Eddie,

    250 UK Channels is a lot more than the terestrial *freeview* - shame it doesn't list which one's!

    Looks good, let us know if you get one or find the list.

    Eddie,

    It is probably worldwide free channels - Ok for keeping up to date on current news if you can speak the lingo of course.

    well there is method in my my madness, i was thinking along the lines of that, in the lines of free sport channels. I may be barking up the wrong tree but i know there is a loophole in the law that allows sports channels to be beamed over here etc.

    You know the way sky charges pubs a wedge of money for showing football, well the pub down our road gets israeli TV for free and its legal so you can guess why im thinking of this

    I'd be surprised if you could pick up any UK based channels on that as Sky are the only UK based satellite company. Be careful...

    I don't doubt for a minute that it's legal, what I meant was be careful you don't end up with 250 channels in languages you can't speak.:D
