  1. This was a good move by GMC getting Mega Cosmos back on Dish Network.

    Everyone in the US subscribes to on of the Greek packages on Dish. With satellite people have more choices American HD programing, local channels , PVR, extra receivers.

    With IPTV you do not have the choices that you have with satellite. People that subscribe to one of the Greek packages on Dish and have EllasTv for Mega most of them or all will cancel.


  2. After playing with 2 different Ellastv IP boxes this pass week , I did not see any LIP sync problems on any of the Greek channels specially the Mega channels, the Video was clear and sharp no break ups smooth channel changing.

    Addynia, After all the problems you are reporting on your Ellastv IP box it looks like you have Defective IP BOX.

    Roku Locks Out Third Party International Channels

    One of the most compelling features of Roku, and why they’ve been relatively successful as a scrappy startup, has been their open platform — enabling just about any person or group to produce a video streaming app. Well, fun time’s over. And, apparently, DISH offered Roku enough cash to lock out third party International and foreign language channels… public, private, free, or paid.

    Going forward, DISHWorld will be our exclusive partner for the distribution of international content in North America. We believe that this relationship with Dish will result in a greater variety of content as well as higher quality content for our users as well as better results for owners of international content. However, as a result of the exclusive arrangement, many existing international or foreign language channels will be migrated off of the Roku platform in the coming days and weeks.

    Due to the exclusivity and to help make sure there is no confusion for new channels, we have updated the developer agreement to require all international or foreign language channels to require written permission before proceeding on Roku (this includes private channels). Typically, we’re going to ask that you speak to DISHWorld first. There may be (and are) cases where they will waive the exclusivity for certain channels or content, but you’re going to have to speak to them to discuss


  4. If they getting the feed from Greece then the video formats is in PAL.

    The LIP sync problem comes when converting a PAL video format to NTSC video format, the Video stream can not keep up with the Audio stream.

    And by using non commercial PAL/NTSC converting equipment.


  5. The LIP sync problem start when converting a PAL signal European tv standard to NTSC North America tv standard. By not using commercial MPEG2/4 PAL to NTSC conversion receivers, and using consumer conversion receivers you will always get the LIP sync problem.
