    Hi all,

    Have just moved house where my starview worked perfectly through Ntl, but the cable provider in this apartment block is cablewatch. Ive never heard of them and it isnt even digital. Will my starview box work?? If not what else is on the marked out there to gain these channels?

    Any help would be great!

    Sorry to say it wont as they use an IPTV system and there are no other boxes you can.

    Sorry but it is happening in a few sites around Dublin with the likes of these providers and they dont even have a full compliment of channels. Regardind Sly I wouldnt be suprised if it was against your lease agreement to put up a Sly dish, just another way of these providers trying to keep competition out.

    So check your lease agreement and if you can have a Sly dish go with them.

    Sly cannot be hacked and so only their boxes work on their system. Regarding companies getting away with providing a crap service well Comreg washed their hands of all these providers and so the likes of these get away with murder.
