Love the free random giveaway lool

Amazing box!
I watch all my TV whilst visiting Poland with the wife's family. The quality over the web is similar to a good youtube video.
Using my sling box account I can also share my friends sling box connection to his Sky HD+ box to watch F1 on the weekends.
Can't ask for more from such a wonderful box.

Cheaper on Amazon, unless you want the "gift".....

Bought one of these recently and it is a great freesat box.One problem though and a good few people have the same problem is the remote will stop working when I use my Yamaha amp.I have to reset the remote each time by clicking ok button and right on the remote.Actually got the box so I could use the Slingbox app on the Boxee Box upstairs but this box ain't supported by the app.The price of the app on phones,tablets and whatever else is a little expensive imo..usually around the £20 price...bit greedy.Plus you have to pay this for every device you want the app on.Apart from all that the Echostar is a great Freesat bot with easy recording and lovely epg.

When we decided to ditch Sky last year we invested in this because we wanted all the features of a Sky box without the hassle or ongoing price/contract I can throughly recommend this product HOT

I would sooner deal with Amazon than Maplin, the " free " solar light looks a bit naff.

Could I ask how the slingbox transmits the sky HD + feed from the skybox ?

This slingbox cannot share Sky + because the box only has a FreeSAT tuner within and only shares that tuner to the Internet.
But the slingbox company sells other smaller boxes which connect to the outputs of your Sky + box, Tivo box or any other device and stream that the same way as this FreeSat box does. Technically it could even stream your PC screen but there are other far better technologies that do this task including the amazing VNC.
Using your one account you can access friends slingbox devices as long as they give you guest permissions and their slingbox unique ID.

These look like good boxes and I am tempted to get one to replace a cheap'n'cheerful generic receiver, although its a toss-up between this and the Humax Foxsat HDR (slightly more I know)
These have come down quite a bit since launch. I understand the second gen of Freesat boxes may come out at some point, which I guess will affect the price of these 1st Gen boxes.

Any comments on when the second gen boxes are to be launched??

P.S. This free offer is weak. Would rather use a money off voucher or buy elsewhere
