I dropped my sky package for this system and absolutely love it. Just as good for what I watch and the picture is crystal clear.
Works like a charm and is saving me 100+ quid a month having no longer to pay for my subscription package. I wouldn't be great at DIY but found bringing out the laptop and following the step by step video instructions that I was able to get the job done. Really happy with my new system and would highly recommend it to others.
