Having to pay 60 bucks for annoying messages appearing every other day on my screen or to find the picture frozen while I have scheduled my DVD recorder to record a show so I can watch it at my convenience won't cut it for me. The service should not be called EllasTV but rather Beta Ellas TV as they are constantly repairing issues or test. The You Tube feature is a joke. Get a long HDMI cable and go straight from your computer to the TV you will get 1000 times better picture and sound believe me.

 

And by the way, ANT1 Satellite, ERT World, FSC and beinSPORT (all offered by DISH) are all the channels you need for your sport's addiction. With DRV as well.

Like I said they have to make some improvements. In order to get beIn plus FSC plus Gol TV plus the Greek channels you need to spendpprobably 115 bucks per month. On top of that you need somehow to be connecting to the computer to watch super league and hoping the link works in order to watch Greek soccer. Instead I can watch all of the Greek sports including euro league basketball and campionato and la liga and bundesliga and premier league and portugeuse liga and french ligue and Argentinian league and Hellenic cup through ellas tv. And I have the option to watch free movies and shows and all the major Greek channels including Nova and kids channels in Greek. Sometimes you need to see the forest behind the tree.

Don't give wrong. They still need to make improvements but I am going to use a Greek saying :

Not quite sure why there is a star international test channel.  This channel used to broadcast Start International but not anymore.  Probably they were testing something although the same channel was broadcasting in a non testing environment as well.

 

I pay $60 per month.  I have the premium package and due to a promo I pay $60 instead of $80. $60 is not a bad deal for the features you are getting although things can get improved.  Keep in mind that if you live in Greece you need to have a subscription for both Nova and OTE (or Connex) in order for someone to view both NovaSports and OTE Sports channels.

I would really be interested to hear your experience with it.

Which package are you getting?

HI, sorry for the late reply. I ordered the premium package but it hasn't arrived yet. What are peoples experience with the delivery times of the boxes? Also, I'm a bit concerned about some comments about the internet connection. Parents are on Telus High Speed (V1) which is a 15mbps ADSL line. Any thoughts on if this will be OK?

Now I'm trying to watch the panathanaikos euro league game and I'm getting a black screen. The first 3 sporting events I've sat down to watch is nothing but a black screen. So just when is this service going to be worth the money?

you may want to follow up with them regarding the delivery. They told me it is going to take 3 to 5 business days but I had to call twice to get the confirmation the box was mailed. Also it took a week for me to get it after getting confirmation that it was sent. So from the time I placed the order till I got the package it took 10 days.

I am able to watch all nova sports channels. Just give it like 10 seconds for picture to show up after selecting either novas1 or novas 2. It didnt use to take so long for them to show up.

Great, thanks! Yes I spoke to them and the boxes were shipped last friday. So all the way to BC, probably get them early next week. I'll report back once the parents try them out.

If you don't mind how much did you pay for the premium package? Also did you pay for the box?  I just saw they are charging the box for $95 including shipping.

Has anyone set this up on a Roku box?

 

I added their private channel... but actually getting a subscription to their service is proving difficult.  Phone lines never answered, emails never answered, etc. 

You should try calling them again. The technical team has a dedicated 800 number and they are available most of the time. I only had hard time talking to the sales or customer service area.

Let us know about your Ellas TV roku experience ( channel list, any issues,etc)

By the way how did you add their private channel? I was looking for the channel but no luck at all. Unless you called customer service and they gave it to you over the phone.
