How many boxes can you have? Or do you have to pay separate subscriptions for each box? Unfortunately that's what Wherevertv told me a while back. Is it the same for Ellastv?

I really dont understand some of you guys. Finally after so many years we are able to watch live tv from Greece with all the channels and without having to install dishes on the roof, and you are complaining? Asking so many questions for what use?

Do you think it is professional for any company offering a paid service to get upset when customers or prospecting customers ask legitimate questions just because the company does not wish to answer?? Or get upset when a customer brings to light legitimate problems they are having with their service?? By your logic, everyone should just hand over their money to Ellas TV blindly, and just deal with any problems they might come across because they should be grateful that Ellas TV is offering the service in the first place. :rolleyes: And not to nitpick, but from all public account this service has not been around 2 years yet as you claim....

That being said and to be fair, as of recent it seems like Ellas TV was trying to answer people's questions and be helpful on this forum. But at the same time, one would think they would work better on their public relations as some of the responses have not been helpful at all, (And not to mention borderline rude) and they have also ignored a few questions that were asked....

How many boxes can you have? Or do you have to pay separate subscriptions for each box? Unfortunately that's what Wherevertv told me a while back. Is it the same for Ellastv?

I asked that earlier and still haven't gotten an answer...

From one of their many sites, I see one mentions that a subscription is needed for every additional box, but I'm not sure if the subscriptions for the additional boxes on the account are full price or not.

To answer your question about additional boxes it is 3 per account, and there is an additional charge of $9.99 per additional subscription, with a free Box, with $50 deposit per box....

I hope this is helpful ....

All questions are welcome

And no we are not rude, just stating the facts ...

Let me understand this so it's all clear.

So far I have paid a $50.00 deposit for the receiver (which by the way seems to be defective) and $9.99 for the lease.

If I wanted another receiver, I would have to pay another $50.00 deposit and another $9.99 for the lease. If I wanted a third one I'd have to do the same.

Where is the free receiver I wonder?

I don't want to return the Box.

I want to be a customer.

I just want to know if I have to pay the $50.00 deposit for each Box I order including the first.

I just want to know!!!

If I were you I would ask if Ote Tv will be added to the channel listing, so we could watch tomorrow's game. Not how many mbits is being used per channel, and am not upset. Or if anyone knows how to watch it in US.

If I mean if, I wasnt implying to your self

Customer cancels, they will receive there deposit back ...

Someone I know got Ellas TV. It looks like they fixed the delayed channels since addynia had service, because he says that the delayed channels are a true 7 hours delay. For example a show played at 8PM in Greece is played at 8PM eastern time on the delayed channel. (Well at least before the time changed, but the time changes here in a few days anyway) That seems like a pretty nice feature for these direct channels, as you can enjoy the programing in the US as it would be shown in Greece. Hopefully I can test it out as well soon and I’ll be sure to post of any pros or cons he tells me of as well.

I am giving it another shot, but this time no more negative postings. Waiting for the box though.

Does EllasTV have the international versions of Greek channels, meaning ERT WORLD, ANTENNA SATELLITE, MEGA COSMOS, and ALPHA SAT?

I don't have the box, and I don't think I will be getting it anyway since MEGA COSMOS is returning to DISH NETWORK.

To answer your question though the time that I did have the box, they had MEGA COSMOS and ERT WORLD but not ANTENNA Satellite or ALPHA SAT.

Where did you hear that Mega Cosmos was returning to Dish Networks? That is welcome news if true.

Go to the forum topic "Mega Cosmos being added back to Dish Network". It was reported on Facebook on the Dish Network Greek TV page.

It's very interesting however that in the channel listings, ANT1 ANT1 Europe as well as ANT1 Delayed are not listed in the web site where I know for a fact that they are all currently offered with the ET-503 box.

It is funny how there has been a sudden influx of new postings about Ellas TV... :ph34r:

 

Anyway, having been using the service for a few months now, here are some thoughts by my friend:

Positives:

  • Channel changing is fast for the most part
  • Time delay channels are great, maybe one of the best features
  • A lot of radio stations available, also YouTube and TuneIn app accessibility.
  • On demand has promise
  • Response time to issues is generally fast. He said he usually sees service notices pop up on the box before he even notices issues.
  • Picture quality is great on most channels with exceptions (more on that below)

Negatives:

  • A few channels don?t work from time to time and picture quality varies on others. (Break up or degrades) But he says they have been getting better at fixing them quickly.
  • On demand lacks. There are a lot of sections and options, but some of them are empty and updates to them are slow or sometimes non-existent.
  • No EPG or Catchup TV as advertised yet. It seems they are working on it, but nothing yet.

    Overall he is happy with it and says it has promise, but a number of issues do need to be sorted out to make it better. He moved to a new house in a wooded area, so satellite signal is difficult to receive. But he says he misses the DVR option he had with Dish the most. Presumably if they launch Catchup TV and/or update the on demand more frequently, it wouldn't really be an issue. More updates in the future?.

I do agree with your comments Grk101.  There are a few things that can be improved like you mentioned with your post but overall a good experience.   By the way i think Catchup TV is now offered.

Also, NOVA participates with 6 channels, ERT with its European content, not to mention the variety of other rights that EllasTV has established for its viewers.
