- What is IPTV?
IPTV means Internet Protocol Television. Basically, the signals are sent from a server to the customer via Internet Broadband. So, if you have an internet connection at home you could easily set this up and watch TV in no time.
- What Internet Speed do we need?
A stable 2mb speed is usually enough with some minor glitches; however, as the signal tends to drop sometimes here in Cyprus a Broadband Speed of 3mb or 4mb will be more beneficial. This allows a threshold if speeds fluctuate. From the 1st February, if you are a CYTA customer you should have experienced an upgrade. Check with your service provider to see what speed you are paying for, or click onto our SpeedTest.
- Do we need an engineer to fit the box?
No, not really. This is a plug and play system. If however, your modem is situated far from the TV then we can arrange an engineer to run a cable, set it up and explain how it all works for a small fee. Home plugs are also an option; however, we have found from experience that sometimes these can have intermittent faults.
- Do we need to register?
Yes you do. We will need a UK Address in order to obtain the User Pin and password for your box.
- Is your Box the same as other providers?
No. Our set top is unique to EasyVisionTv. It is not only an IPTV system but also has a built in Media Player, where one can connect a USB Stick or external Hard Drive and play movies. Plus it has a Digital TV encoder which also allows one to watch the new Cyprus Digital TV programs, so long as you have a local aerial connected.
- Can we record Programmes?
The system is constantly recording the main channels via the providers’ server for up to 5 days. So all you have to do is bring up the TV guide and go back to the program you wish to view. You can also book mark any future programs you specially want to watch later. It’s like Sky plus and I player all in one.
- How can we tell what is coming up?
Just like a quality satellite receiver, there is a built in TV guide (EPG) so you easily schedule your viewing.
- Are there any Sport Packages?
Not yet. New channels are always being added. However BBC and ITV do have some great sporting events such as 6 Nations, Champions League, Formula 1, Wimbledon and Great Golf. We also as a company fit Satellite TV and can offer great deals on Combo packages if bought together with EasyVisionTv.
- Can I watch TV in an other room?
Yes this can be arranged. We have 25 years experience in the Satellite and Cable industry and therefore can pretty much cope with any request.
- Can we change Channels from other rooms?
Again, yes. This can be arranged.
- Can I pay monthly?
Yes, we feel customers would prefer to pay this way. If you need to stop payment then please write an email specifying your request.
- Are you Island wide?
Yes we are Island Wide. Please check out our home page to see which dealer is near you or contact 7777 1146 for more details.
- Can I take this to another country?
Not a problem. Our new HD Set top box has a switch mode power supply and will work World Wide.
