I am enjoying Sky Angel IPTV. The picture quality is good, maybe even better than w/Dish equipment, sound is good. I have Comcast cable Internet, works well with occasional buffering. My wired hookup uses a Linksys router.

I also have an FM transmitter hooked up to the box which allows me to transmit audio from all SA channels to every radio in my house, including basement and garage. I use the 48-hour review feature almost daily. The 48-hour review feature is available for faith TV channels only, but I can always find something great to watch using that feature.

I am using SA more than before. Some of the added channels (FamilyNet, Gospel Music Television, Church Channel, return of KTLW radio) offer many of my favorite programs. FamilyNet is now owned by In Touch Ministries (Charles Stanley), and they have added some excellent new programming, especially some great morning interview/talk programming.

Thanks, that helps much.

Do you know your internet speed? mine is about 1.1-1.3 KPS
Is that sufficient?

My Internet speed varies from about 1.0 to as high as 7.0. Have you run the speed test at the Sky Angel site at different times of day?
