looks like they took it off the website.......
I feel sorry for the Canadians. According to the internet shiftv is the only IPTV provider in canada. sky angel can't reach them via DBs even if they did stay in the DBS business. These people now have useless equipment unless they want to subscribe to a different shiftv package.
Good point about glorystar, I hope its in my future. since I am a lifetime member I have been waiting for skyangel to actually cut me off before making a decision, dish would be less expensive initially due to owning the equipment already but glorystar would be cheaper in the long run with no monthly fees.
Is glorystar available in Canada?
fta glorystar ku band system,
can i use my dishnet work setup from skyangel ?
I'm lost here!
Does this mean porn was on the SA Canada IPTV boxes without paying for it or something? If the point is only that the company ALSO has porn subscriptions available that's a pretty stupid reason to break a contract.
Dish Network has offered a paid porn subscription for years, if not from the start. Didn't seem to be a problem all that time. If this is an example of Dominion's business practices it's little wonder they have a failed track record.
I believe an internet appliance such as an IPTV box could one day gain popularity, but only if it is considered as a means to internet viewing in general, not as a service specific paperweight should a programming package be eliminated. Due to logistics it is totally impractical to have numerous boxes to cover each specific programming package, but if I understand the issue here that's EXACTLY what SA is banking on and is also demanding limitations on what programming the company can sell to others. For my money that's just insane!
As I've said many times, this business model serves to only evangelize the already converted. If you REALLY wanted to evangelize then the Faith channels should be free & in the clear to any other subscription on the network, if not an unsubscribed box even. It's the only thing that makes Christian sense to me!!
shif tv which was broadcasting sky angel IPTV in canada was also broadcasting porn. This was happening for months when all of a sudden one day canadians woke up one morning to no iptv. sky angel finally notified the subscribers after the fact and blamed the cut off on the "porn issue". meanwhile people were left with no service, useless boxes. To make matters worse their accounts were still being auto debited for the fees. I always wondered why the instant shut off, no warning etc.
Now that neulion has moved into Canada one would think/hope that sky angel would choose to honor their former contracts for IPTV service.
