Just a friendly warning guys. The owners of Ellas TV are the same ones who kept moving Mega Cosmos around to multiple platforms here in the U.S. They are being sued by Directv and wouldn't be surprise

Big deal....!!!!!tons of cheaper opportunities out there....and much better

The files are behind a paywall, but it looks like the lawsuit was initiated by ELLAS TV against TITAN for "Fraud or Truth-In-Lending", not the other way around. Titan controls the international rights

New channels are currently getting tested and most likely will be added next week. The Irish channels are no longer available and the majority of the new channels are local channels.

Three new channels were added: novasports hd delayed and NovaCinema delayed. The third one which I was surprised to see is the Private Spice aka adult program aka tsonta 24/7.

NovaCinema 3, NovaCinema 4 and Private Spice are locked and password needs to be used in order to watch them.

No additional fees to watch the locked channels at least for premium package users like myself.

Hi Guys,

 

I'm from Melbourne Australia and signed up to Ellas Tv 4 weeks ago. Since then i have had a couple of problems with the service but nothing too major. They seem to fix the problems very quickly which is good.

At the moment i am having problems with 3 channels. This has been ongoing since i connected the box. Nova Sports 4 (Ellas Sports 4), Nova Sports 6 (Ellas Sports 6) and Nova Sports Highlights (Ellas Sports Highlights).

 

These 3 channels keep playing the same thing for 30 seconds and then freeze. You go back to the channel later and again plays the same thing for 30 seconds and freezes.

 

Anyone in USA or Canada having the same issue with these channels?

We don't get novasports 4 or 6. I have the same issue with a few channels here in the USA including novasports highlights. You may want to notify the technical support because It's a buffering issue. Sometimes rebooting the device may fix the problem. However the majority of the times I am getting these issues fixed after sending an email to technical support or calling them.

If you don't mind can you post the channels you are getting in Australia?

I am in Canada, and my brother called and spoke to somebody and they said the package is $39.99/month and you get over 40 channels. How come you can't find channel list on their site?

He also said you have to get the service for a year.

Hey Georgios.

Same here in Australia. You have to go on a 12 month contract and pay $400 AUD for the box.

It's really funny why they wouldn't advertise what channels they have in order to push their service.

Don't get me wrong i love it I haven't had any major problems with the service but here in Australia not enough advertising I found it by accident.

Just a friendly warning guys. The owners of Ellas TV are the same ones who kept moving Mega Cosmos around to multiple platforms here in the U.S. They are being sued by Directv and wouldn't be surprised if they pulled the plug on the service without warning.  I mean, come on! $400 AUD for a box! Court cost expenses is where that money is going. :gr:

By the way i think Catchup TV is now offered.

 

I just saw this. Don't get it confused with on-demand. Catchup TV is supposed to be a feature within the EPG that enables you to go back a certain amount of time and watch any program that has been broadcast. My friend says that there is not even an EPG yet.

You are right. My bad I saw the feature but it does not work. And you are right the EPG does not work either.

Christos Anesti guys it's been a long time since I visited this chat. Some news on Ellas tv first, you can unlock your password protected channels like private spice and/or ellas cinema3,4 by entering your account password. The one you used when you activated your box and boom you get access. Also I just found out that a new similar company started offering iptv like ellas tv called tvcosmo. For more info www.tvcosmo.com I was surprised to receive a brochure by mail and also one of the owners of Cavo told me about it and he said he was involved too. Lets find out what you guys know about it. So far am very happy with ellas tv. Sometimes the channels ellas sport 3-4 and HD have issues but they are still being tested. Good luck.

I recently had the chance to test Ellas TV out briefly. I was actually impressed by the set up, seemed pretty smooth. I didn't notice any major issues; all the channels were working when I tried it. It seemed nice to have all those channel options, especially channels/programs that aren't carried by Dish. I think when it comes down to it though, the international versions of the channels pretty much include the more important programs anyway.

I just saw that they have added three new channels from Cyprus; sigma TV, mega Cyprus and ant1 Cyprus. So for Cypriot brothers ellas TV carries 4 Cypriot channels; the above three plus RIK sat.

Also Epirus TV and Star Kentrikis Elladas started broadcasting as well.

Ote sport 1 and ote sport 2 are back and very surprised with the quality of image.

Also you need to update your firmware because the recording feature is on. However I haven't figured out yet how to record a program. Lol

I agree with you.  For someone who lives in Greece in order to get all the channels offered by Ellas TV would have to pay close to 53 euros ($69) for the sports pack offered by Nova plus another 20 euros ($26) for the family pack offered by OTE.  Total $95 if you live in Greece and you want to get the channels currently offered by Ellas TV plus with Ellas TV you don't have to pay for features such as radio, apps, media player, free movies and recording.

 

I am totally satisfied with the product and once EPG and catch up are added then you have all the features expected by an IPTV provider.

Regards to trikalinos1 from Boston. I've been through all the iterations of Greek TV, Dish to Directv to Home2US and now, Ellas TV.

 

I've had the Ellas TV box with the premium pack since Home2US disappeared. I have to agree with my patrioti, Trikalinos1, that the system has had significant improvements made to it, especially the last 2-3 months. The freeze ups are long gone, lip sync issues have gone away and content has increased dramatically. I made the investment in power line ethernet to feed the Ellas TV box, instead of wi-fi, and it is now solid on all channels. Picture quality is impressive and the sound is as good as the source material. As I've mentioned before, I'm not a soccer fan, but if you are, it seems to have every match. I love Greek music and there is a seemingly endless choice including VOD concerts.

 

As an experiment, we took the box and cables on our last trip, connected it to hotel ethernet and it worked fine. Does anyone know if the ipad or laptop version is working yet?

 

Bottom line, the wifey (whose opinion is the only one that matters!) loves it for the Greek soaps, music and news, so it stays.

I spoke with a friend of mine who has the ipad version. He told me that the quality is awesome. The only thing is that you have to buy the app $15 also you need to create a new account and password, therefore to pay again since you cannot use the account you may have with the top box. My friend is using the air tv to connect the ipad to his tv instead of using the box. I think programming is cheaper in ipad as well compared to box.
