Unfortunately haven't heard very good reports re these digi bods and it seems in out of the way places the local 'reps' are a bit cheeky!

Have you looked into tivi bu? That's a prog downloaded onto comp and one pays, if I'm not mistaken, a lira per month. From Turk telekom. Our son arranged it for me although I rarely watch it! It's v handy for sports events tho'. And I did watch Strictly Come Dancing on Sat! More fool me!
All the best Smile




Well, this is interesting. I saw a commercial briefly one day while flipping the channels and saw something about TIVI but didn't pay enough attention. But it means i have to watch all programs via the computer? is that right?

I have an enormous library of DVDs that i'll probably not get around to watching in this lifetime anyway. so i'm not sure i want to resign my golden years to becoming a certified couch potato!! Wink

Still, i'll check it out. Thanks for the heads up.

Yes tivi bu can only be watched via the computer. It's a handy alternative to have but not vital! But it does have bbc ent on there.
Quite agree w/you tho'- best to leave off viewing and get moving! Wink

All the best. Smile

We needed a new Digibox last week and the local Digiturk guys came out (although granted from only 4 miles away), installed a new box and made sure everything was working correctly (I've even got a 3 month free call-out guarantee if anything does go wrong) and all that for 30 TL (Turkish Lira - about £13).

In my neck of the woods, TL 30 is about what all service folks charge, not just Digiturk. I have no idea why they originally told me it would cost so much!! you got a good deal though with a 3 month free guarantee if it causes problems again. Good for you!
