Now in our 11th successful year of trading, we have flourished as a business by selling top quality products and offering excellent value for money. Repeat business by recommendation from our existing customer base is the secret to our success.
The beauty of this system is that it is so easy to set up. Just follow 4 simple steps and you're watching UK TV ! Designed so that it is simple to set up and use with any type of TV with a spare HDMI input. You don't need a PC or, a laptop computer connected to the TV to watch your favourite UK channels and there's no need to have unsightly, audio and VGA cables in the TV viewing area. It's small, ergonomically designed, runs silently and there's no fan, so it isn't a dust magnet. The set top box remote control is simple to understand and easy to use and apart from selecting the signal source, completely replaces the TV remote control.
Optimised to play streaming media over the internet and 1080p HD movies from virtually all types of storage media. If your TV doesn't have a spare HDMI input, we can supply you with a HDMI expansion unit, creating an extra HDMI input. The SPDIF output enables the unit to be connected to any type of external sound system. There's an RJ45 input to connect to the internet by ethernet cable which is preferred for 1080p streaming media and the device is also wi-fi enabled to connect to your wireless internet router. 4 USB slots accept memory sticks, wireless mouse, external hard disk drive etc. and there are also slots for SD cards.
Unpack the contents of the box and position your new set top box for UK TV near the television. Either use an ethernet cable to connect the box to the internet connection or, wirelessly connect it to your internet router (comprehensive written instructions are supplied and if required, customer support is available 7 days a week.) Plug the supplied HDMI cable into the box and the TV. Insert batteries into the remote control and connect the box to the mains electricity supply. The power supply is variable voltage and works with the electricity supply on all continents - 100v to 240v compatible.

There are a number of ways that you can watch UK TV channels in Turkey. By far, the most popular way amongst the British Expatriate community in Turkey is using a VPN connection with BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and various others.

Some people choose to watch UK channels and programmes on their PCs and others use a VGA and audio cable or a standard HDMI cable to connect their PC or laptop computer to their television.

Either way, the result is the same, UK TV channels and programmes available to watch in Turkey.

Of course, as has already been mentioned, a good VPN connection to the UK is required along with a speedy internet connection in Turkey with no bandwidth restrictions.

Watching UK TV channels on the internet in Turkey uses lots of internet bandwidth and for this reason, mobile internet connections with a monthly data cap are usually unsuitable.

As an example, a one hour programme streamed from the UK to Turkey can use up to 500Mb of internet bandwidth. At this rate, the monthly bandwidth allowance on a mobile internet connection would soon be exhausted.

An ADSL internet connection in or near a town or, city centre or, a wireless internet connection in a region that is not served by cable internet, is usually all that is needed to watch UK TV channels in Turkey.

The internet connection being used to watch UK TV channels in Turkey is required to provide a constant 1Mb to 1.5Mb of internet bandwidth and therefore, as a rule, a minimum internet connection of 2Mbps is required to allow for some slowing down at times when the internet is busy.

Hi, I previously asked for information on your system and you quoted Initial Set up as 220 Euro (approx. 500 TL) and then a monthly payment plan of 20 Euro (50TL) per month. Can you please outline/confirm costs and payment options. I have also seen recently that it is now possible to watch Sky Sports and Movies.............can you confirm this also.

Many thanks Lynda

Hi Lynda,

I am sorry but I cannot find any email exchange between us and the figures that you have quoted in your message are not ours.

You must have got us mixed up with another company because we don't do any Pirated Sky channels.

The English channels on our Set Top Box are UK Free to Air channels that are widely available from many different sources in the UK.

If you require BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Dave etc. on a 'zero' monthly cost, one-off payment system - you may be interested in our Set Top Box.

BUT thanks for posting your message

Regards

Paul

Hi,

I have just bought an apartment in Gulluk, (Bodrum area) Turkey, on a smallish complex (18) apartments in total). The site is wi-fi enabled, but I am concerned that the connection strength/speed via wi-fi will be inadequate for streaming live UK TV. I am finding difficulty obtaining clear information on getting a "hard wired" service (phone line/cable/satellite etc.) and am also hearing that even phone line connections are too slow for streaming ! Could you offer any advice to a novice on the subject of Turkish living? I love the idea of your box, and would happily order one, if I could be certain that I could get it working satisfactorily.

Thank You

Best Regards,

Phil Grice.

Hi Phil,

Unfortunately, the only way to test the connection is to do repeated download tests at different times of day. How fast is the wi-fi connection ? Is it one connection that is split amongst all 18 apartments or 18 separate connections ?

Regards

Hi Paul, Wow! Talk about Speedy response! I wasn't expecting a reply so soon - so well done you - This gives me more confidence in your company and its product. As far as I am aware, the one Wi-fi connection serves the whole site - which is my big concern. If several residents are on line at the same time, I guess the bandwidth will be severely compromised! Thanks again for the response.

Best Regards

Phil

Hi, sorry to bother you again, but I am only here in Turkey for a short time before returning to the UK, so need to get my TV sorted pretty fast. So I'm afraid I have a few more questions ! 1) I have just been reading about using a Turkcell dongle, which uses 3G for Internet access - would this work with your box ? 2) can your box receive the UK HD channels ( BBC HD etc) ? 3) What would be the expected delivery time to my address in Turkey, from date of order ? Thanks again, Phil.

Hi Phil,

You will need a 3G router to use Turkcell and they restrict the data throughput that you are allowed - streaming TV takes a lot of internet bandwidth. You can upgrade to HD channels, but if you are worried about slowish internet, that will not be a good idea as HD channels take even more bandwidth. 5+ days delivery

Kind Regards

Hi Paul, Yes, I did think about HD being a little ambitious! However, I found the following comment from a forum called "Turkish Living" which, if it is to be believed, looks like the answer ? "We have used a dongle to run the TV system for months now and you can monitor the usage , which incidetally is next to nothing. We pay 39tl a month for 4Gb.When we had the system installed we paid an extra 130tl for an HD modem. The dongle is connected to it which turns the whole house wireless. We run the TV and 2 sometimes 3 laptops pretty much all day everyday and have never gone over the 4Gb limit. This will only happen if you are downloading from the net. Hope this helps," Graeme Could this be true ? Thanks, Phil.

Hi Phil,

I would take that comment with a pinch of salt. Watching streaming TV on our (any) device uses bandwidth up quickly (1Mbps per second). Our customers who watch TV throughout the day can use 80+GB per month.

That comment is just not accurate/credible.

1Mbps x 60 seconds x 60 minutes x 6 hours per day x 30 hours in a month = 80 GB

Hope this helps

I am in UK at the moment, could I buy a box here to take back to Turkey ? If so, what would be the cost in Sterling and could I get support in Turkey if I had any problems ?

Hi Leah,

You can buy a box and have it delivered to the UK and then take it to Turkey with you or, you can wait and have it delivered to you in Turkey - it doen't matter either way.

You can get customer support seven days a week by telephoning our local number or the UK number. You can also post questions in this comments section

I hope that this information is useful.

Kind Regards

I am looking for sky installation prices in Southern Turkey, do you cover this region ?

Hi Mr. Hooper,

Which channels are you hoping to get from Sky ?

You do know that most of the channels have moved to the new Astra satellite and cannot be received in this region any longer AND that more channels are moving in February. Sky is not really an option by satellite any longer.

Which channels are you hoping to get from Sky ?

Hope that this information is useful to you.

Regards

Paul
