    Sky Angel Will Suspend IPTV service on Midnight January 14, 2014

    I don't think it was the religious channels that paid the bills for Sky Angel but rather the FAVETV channels such as Hallmark, PIXL, NFL Network, Outdoor Channel, etc., and many of these channels are not renewing their contracts. I also thought there were some legal issues surrounding the whole...

    Anyone using Vulkano DVR?

    The Vulkano Blast seems to be out of stock in many of the online stores. I found it for 198.99 plus 4.99 S&H at Cost Captain. I just placed an order. I hope it's worth it. I was frustrated to get the new STB only to discover my DVD Recorder no longer worked with it.

    No Olympics on the SkyAngel NBC sports channels????????

    I also wondered if it was due to Sky Angel being an Internet based service, and perhaps Sky Angel's use of IPTV technology to deliver its content was viewed as Internet streaming and therefore prohibited by NBC

    ETAs on ordered Receivers

    I sent an email to customer service, and two days later I get an email that my stb has been shipped. I'm thinking it's not a coincidence. Someone dropped the ball on this one. No worries. It's scheduled to arrive today.

    If Sky Angel can carry subchannels such as Oldie Goldie, Qubo, PBJ, and Ion Life

    I love it when a show airs on ION that has been deemed inappropriate. You get a black screen with text that states they are having "technical difficulties." They could probably block certain shows on the other networks as well.
