Top Up TV
Advantages: ease of use & setup., great selection of programs
Disadvantages: takes a few days for the box to receive first downloaded content/shows
top up tv is a great add-on for between 10-15 pound a month you can choose to receive premium content/channels that include comedy, sci-fi, documentory etc.
the service downloaded content to your top up tv recorder allowing you to watch shows just as you would a dvd on top of that you receive all the usual freeview channels with the advantages of being able to pause live tv & record one channel while watching another., i currently subscribe to tv favorites & picturebox which gives me around 30 movies a month to watch as & when i want to., you can also record your favorite shows with the built-in programme guide which is really easy to use., from getting it out of the box & setting it up took almost 20 mins which includes the call to top up tv to activate my viewing card., please be aware tho that it can take around 2 - 3 days for your box to start filling up with the content that they offer., but the freeview is available straight away., somthing which i wasn't told at the shop when i brought it.., but after the first few days you'll get updates every night (usually around midnight) which will download the latest content direct to your box ready for you to watch whenever you want to.,
all in all i'd rate the product 10/10 for ease of use & quality of service
Summary: all in all a great product & value for money
