Sounds good value particularly if you remove your existing dish should you
have one.

Somehow "specialists" and "Euro aerials" don't seem to go together.

Hmmm. I suppose it does transmit signals from the box to a TV via wires
rather than through "the ether". But it is a quirky and misleading use
of "transmit".

I think they may also find that the main user group for AD is blind
and partially sighted people, and not the hard of hearing as stated.

If I were in any of those groups, I might well feel offended by their
lack of awareness.

The way I read it they offer to upgrade an existing dish to quad LNB for the
same price.

Bit baffled by the 5 "delivery charge" though?

The box does get good reviews. I'd get one if I weren't waiting for the 'R'
version to come out. (I have the SD version and that's OK, but add
upscaling, HD channels and recording...).

I'm amazed how many channels are still not on the Freesat EPG

Freesat EPG first column
Freesat from Sky (Sky digibox) second column
