    Hi I had my first satellite in 1982...as you can imagine there were only a handful of channels available ..its a different world today .Its certainly not the end as far as i am concerned as there is still tons of stuff available on satellites and will be for a few more years yet..IPTV is good but cannot beat satellites for quality and reliability in my opinion.

    Regards

    We must all be getting old ! I remember D2Mac and TV1000. I originally used to visit my local Sat dealer to get the card updated. As you say I think there is some life left for a bit longer in Satellite. Its also a good pastime seeing what you can get.

    Oh the days of D2mac, TV1000 and Filmnet....and maybe Red Hot Dutch? lol
    Remember having an Amstrad SRD-510..but wasn't my first box.
    Agreed still fun. I enjoy the getting it more than watching it tbh! (apart from the footie)

    IKS is back up and running at the moment, for those still using their Spiderboxes.

    It may as well be dead and buried as far as I am concerned. It was a pretty good service up to about 12 months ago, for about 5 years or so. Since then it has lost about 75% of the channels and what's left is only available about 40% of the time. Absolutely no feedback from the mods about future plans or fixing current problems. For my purposes, watching sport, it has become completely unreliable and an embarrassment when I have promised events to others. I won't be renewing.

    I have now turned to IPTV which is far more reliable and quality much improved. Even the free IPTV on Hitech is better than nothing on IKS.

    I agree Thom, but those of of us that have been around for a bit use whatevers available, sport has been quite good on IPTV but a lot of other channels have gone, one thing that I observed is things change all the time these days, the films on the Hitech don't seem to work at the mo but the filth and footy do, the films in the past have taken a dive but always come back.

    Lets wait and see.
