  1. Just wait until they block them again. As I understand it, they only unblocked select videos as a goodwill gesture to affected subs. I could be wrong though.

    If they block them again, I won't cry about it. My life doesn't revolve around Mega. There was life before Mega and there will be life after Mega. The way Mega has treated its omogenia, they've been nothing but a Mega pain. That's just my opinion.
  2. Hello 'gang3171',

    Are you watching "I Zoi tis Allis" and "Mystika tis Edem" online on the Mega website but is it the full episode or couple clips of few minutes each?

    The Mega site still blocking their programs as clearly their announcement on their player says:

    "We're sorry, currently our video library can only be streamed within Greece".

    If somehow you are watching the full episodes, could you please let us know how you are able to do it.

    Thank you.

    Go to the Mega website and click the tab on top that says "
  3. ERT will stop from Dish in a matter of months, as soon as the Dish subscribers have the time to switch over so they don't miss the new soccer season. Olympiakos and the other teams will remain on ERT.

    ERT will be on cable as well, but neither on two satellite platforms nor FTA.

    The writing is on the wall, decision has been made by GMG/TITAN.

    ERT approved the moves on Monday in order to please MEGA.

    Done deal.

    DKSat, what info do you have concerning this matter?
  4. Guys, whoever is interested do not waste your time with Euro-World Network/GreekTV-America/Home2us/whatever. It seems like their customer service does not know what they are doing as they keep giving out different information each time you contact them. Call Greek Media Group directly (if you can get through...) A friend of mine called them yesterday, the receiver is free, you do not have to prepay anything. Only thing you pay for at time of the order is the shipping for the receiver and LNB if you need one. You get one month of service free if you sign up for auto-pay, and you can choose multiple billing options including the standard monthly way if you don

  5. PLEASE! :tup: It seems like a MUCH more balanced channel, good mix of old and new. GMTV is mostly older stuff, but still beats Blue hands down. Blue is mostly pop and newer stuff. GMTV also plays mini-concerts which are nice, my only real complaint is that its all on a loop. It seems they gave up on the channel after their initial attempt to have live interactive shows and hosts.

    GMTV beats Blue, hands down? :LOL: Are you freakin' kidding me? I'm not one to sit in front of my TV and watch music videos all day, but at least Blue looks like a real music channel. GMTV is low budget crap they must have found in small town Hellas. (I know they're from Galatsi, but I'm trying to make a point).
  6. This whole situation is getting so ridiculous that I don't understand why people in the USA don't just tell MEGA to screw off?!  It is becoming quite clear that MEGA in Greece doesn't give a crap about the omogenia so why do people care so much about this channel?!  Instead of subscribers jumping through hoops to subscribe to the channel, it should be MEGA who should be doing whatever they can to satisfy consumers and get the channel distributed as widely as possible and on the most popular platforms not obscure ones like Home2US.  I would prefer MEGA over ANT1 but due to my great dislike of Bell & Rogers (the only two providers who carry the channel in Canada), I have learned to live without it.  I think former DirecTV subs and potential new subs should boycott Home2US and their MEGA package to send them a clear message that they have had enough.  No one channel is worth this much effort and expense IMO, at the end of the day its only television.

  7. hey, maybe they will leave MEGA COSMOS FTA... NOT.

    It is nice to see MEGA COSMOS again though. They need to sync the picture with the sound, however. The picture looks good and the sound too although not synced.

    I know I have been complaining and I would have liked for it to have gone back to DISH but since this is a done deal, I am giving in and order the service tomorrow.

    DKSat how do you explain the FTA transmision of it right now? Is this just testing?

    Are you also getting it?

    Is the picture and sound not synced or it it just me.


    How are you getting Mega at the moment? You mentioned that you're planning to order it tomorrow? :unsure:
  8. I got an e-mail reply from GreekTV-America about why the website is not up and this is what they wrote me:

    Thank you for your e-mail. The web-site will be up and running as soon as possible.

    In the meantime, please find below the information reading the Greek television.

    We are currently offering the Mega Cosmos package for $19.99 a month, other channels we are offering in the near future are GMTV, Riksat, Star International and Alter. As soon as they are available we will let the viewers know and you are able to add them to your package.

    If you have a DirecTV antenna we are offering you a FREE receiver and smartcard (and LNB if needed). In order to secure your FREE receiver you will need to agree to a 12 months service contract of the Greek package and provide us with your credit card information. You can pay the subscription on auto-pay on your credit card monthly or in 3 or 6 months increments. You may also pay 12 months upfront and receive one additional FREE month. The receiver and smartcard (and LNB if necessary) will be shipped to you within 7 and 10 days. You will be required to pay a shipping fee of $22.50 per receiver. Once you receive the equipment you will have to contact a local installer to adjust the antenna / LNB. We can assist you in finding an installer in your area. After your dish is adjusted you need to contact us, so we can activate your smartcard. From that day your subscription will start. If you sign up in April you will receive the first month FREE. Please note that the quantities of FREE receivers are limited.

    Please let us know if you have any questions or require additional information.

    Kind regards,


    Shipping in 7-10 days. I believe they told someone else in this thread 2-3 weeks.

  9. Concerning this GreekTV-America, what's the point of having a website if you're not going to have much information on it. All they say is Mega Cosmos now available and the other 4 channels coming soon. They list 2 phone # and a fax # and that's about it.

    It's like they're all secretive about it. And don't get me started on the GMG site! In my opinion, this is a bonehead move by Mega and I wouldn't be surprised if they went crawling back to Dish in the near future.

  10. They told me this last night and I wrote it in my initial post about prices. The only difference is they said Mega and RIK would be available as of today. It seems only Mega though.

    I hope they take a good hard look at the situation and re-adjust the other package prices. Even if they do it is still a hard sell for them especially without ERT.

    I know what you wrote and what they told you but it troubles me that the day is almost over and they still don't have the website up. I mean what kind of people do they have working over there?
  11. This is the latest news.

    ERT World is not going to Home2us Platform it will stay on Dish Network.


    Please tell me this is an April Fools Joke?!

    I hate this day, can we just skip April 1 and go directly to April 2?!

    I don't think DKSat jokes. What DKSat says is pretty legit. I've been following the forum for 4 1/2 years and everything DKSat reports has pretty much been true. DKSat is the most reliable person we have on this forum when it comes to news on the Greek channels. :tup:
