The Advantages of the Zgemma H2S over other freesat receivers

There has been a lot of publicity over android boxes, freesat receivers and illegal freesat receivers been used to get the usually expensive Sky channels such as Sky sports and sky movies. This has been front page news on and off in the UK and Ireland over the last few months and for good reason as Sky report a 25% drop off in subscribers over the last few years. Pointing the finger at android boxes and freesat receivers is ignoring the elephant in the room from Sky’s perspective. For example if you would like to get a full Sky subscription including Sky sports, BT sports, Sky Movies, the documentary channels and all of the kids channels it comes in at well over €100 per month. That is a lot of money for a TV subscription for the majority of the population.

It is because of this reason that people are turning to freesat receivers to get free TV channels instead. Now of course this does not give the premium channels that Sky offer like the sports channels but it does give a lot of channels. Word of this has spread on forums and by word of mouth as people are now trading in their Sky box for a freesat box such as the Zgemma H2S. A box like the Zgemma H2S costs just €139.99 and allows you to receive free TV channels..for free!

A receiver like the Zgemma H2S has all of the features of a Sky box and allows for recording and playback of TV shows although a hard dish as an extra is needed for this feature. So for the price of two months with Sky you can have a full TV setup with no TV bills. Sky can blame illegal streaming as much as they like but their prices are driving customers to boxes like the Zgemma H2S.
