Following a pleasant chat to clear the air with the guys at Airbox, I decided to remove in its' entirety the article relating to the bad service of that company and the poor performance of its' product. I wasn't asked to, forced to or otherwise induced to.
It must be stressed that my only experience of the Airbox product was through our mutual client who was totally dissatisfied with it, and that experience may, or may not be the norm. I am not in a position to say one way or the other because I just don't know. I can only form my own opinion of what I saw.
The points that really concern me about all of this are that they never once asked about, nor made mention of, our mutual customer to see if there was anything they could do to resolve that persons problems and never addressed the points mentioned but preferred to make 'sarcastic' (their word) comments about me and my business. Says it all really.
Airbox assure me that theirs is a solid and reliable product worth every cent of €279 for 12 months followed by a monthly subscription.
They also assure me that they developed the system which they are charging you for, that broadcasts the paid for premium content over the internet to your Airbox which is totally illegal without the content owners permission. Premium content owners never give their permission for this to anyone.
That opportunity has now passed and I hope this is my last diatribe on the airbox product as I feel everything has been said that can be said at this time.
What I will tell you all about though, is that if you want something that performs a similar (not same) function to airbox for a lot less, is that you mosey on over here - click here.
Here you can get all the help you need to set up your own Raspberry Pi IPTV box and get TV, sports and movie channels with no subscription. The only outlay you will have is for the Raspberry Pi and the bits to get it going which amounts to roughly €60 which is over €200 saving for your first year alone.
Links to all the free software and advice and guidance in how to put it it all together are provided by knowledgeable and helpful people who have already done it themselves and are happy to share their experiences with you. The guys over there will even source the equipment for you.
Even the non-techies are building their own IPTV boxes!!
So the bottom line is;
Currently, you can pay Airbox Spain €279 for your first year then pay them a monthly subscription.
You can pay €60 with NO subscription.
You pays your money and makes your choice but just remember one really really really important point. Anyone streaming premium channels over the internet and then charging you for it is acting illegally because they do not have permission from the content provider to do that.
It is rebroadcasting and rebroadcasting without the content owners permission is always illegal and internet servers are an easy target for the broadcast companies to find, shut down and fine. Just so you know.
