Although I’m impressed with our Netflix account I’m not super impressed by the picture quality. That’s why I been looking for another way to get the best picture quality direct to our new home. The best picture quality is otherwise to buy movies, series etc. on Blu-ray as I regularly do (you can really find cheap ones nowadays).
I read a review in a Swedish Home Theater magazine where they tried this combination and was lyric about the picture quality and very impressed by the TV-box called “Smart”. When I then saw this combination in an incredible “Black Friday” offer I could not resist it. The offer included the TV-box, Satellite Dish set, installation AND a Apple TV 4…no cost at all for the start but a reduced monthly payment in 24 month to the Satellite channel provider (Canal Digital). The monthly payment includes almost every channel they got including a lot of HD channels 🙂
The Satellite box is named “Smart” and it seems good on the paper. It has room for a hard disk up to at least 1 TB so you can record everything you like and watch other channels while you do it. It has Wi-Fi/LAN so you can connect to a lot of internet based services or connect to your home network.
Update 2016-12-19: I got a visit from the company that mounts Satellite dishes. The guy that came has just mounted the dish on our garage and installed the box.
When he entered our living room he saw my TV (Pioneer PDP LX-6090) and said that’s the same model of TV he has and that he think that’s the best *lol*. I thought that that guy sure would like to talk about some home theater stuff so later I served him some coffee and cake and we sat down and talked. We talked about picture quality via internet (fiber) compared to cable and cable compared to satellite, new TV techniques and a lot more.
I always gets carried away when I talk about that stuff!
Update 2016-12-21: My Apple TV 4 just arrived so now I got everything I signed up for.
If you have any own experience of Satellite dishes etc. or have any questions, please do leave them below. I would love to hear from you!
