agree with Orbit being great for TV. But need a good internet to avoid buffering. we have Cyta & mid range internet but often get buffering. soeed test said slightly under what we pay for. rung them to complain & they tested it saying was getting just over whats needed for tv. but when i have laptop connected we have problems. despite when getting it they said would do tv & as many gadgets as we wanted. answer would be to upgrade to higher speed but never got around to it

Is it a landline based ISP you want or satellite? If landline then I cannot recommend Primetel highly enough, if satellite then as others have said short circuit. For TV provider I use these, Omega Streams on my Android box, best service I have ever used and I have used a lot. They are on Facebook and their cutomer service is second to none. Price is usually 60 per 12 months but they often do deals, I got my present 12 month sub for 35.

We use Helix hosting, cost 4 a month.

We have Rasberry pi, but android is best, we have one but waiting for the wife to set it up, or someone who is clever.

We have the slowest CYTA internet speed and have the computer on line at the same time the telly is on.

We tend to get buffering sometimes when the adverts are on.

But no problem with the SKY Sports etc. and films.

Customer service is brilliant and very helpful even to a Tech thick like myself. They always answer a ticket within a couple of hours.
