Morning all.
I’m looking at getting a MAG box.
Currently on Sky.
1-where do I get the subscription from?
2-is it easy to fit? (For someone like me who hasn’t got a clue....!!)
Anything else I need to know/do...?
Many thanks

Easy box to setup mate, you get a supplier. You send the “mac address” to supplier then he will give you a URL to enter in portal.
Or i really would advise “NOT” to use portal and load your mag box with an M3U file. Reason i say this is.... the makers of mag boxes are blocking some DNSs. There has been a fix but running M3U on mag also bypasses it, if/when they get blocked. Also as its an M3U you can do multiroom on mag as your using a user/pass and it is not mac tied.
As other members mentioned... goggle IP’V services. Theres hundreds of sites.
More importantly NEVER EVER PAY A SUPPLIER FOR A TEST.

Where do you put the M3U file on a mag then? I presume you SSH to it first, then it goes in a specific folder of the linux setup?

Thanks River, really useful reply!
Is there any suppliers you’d recommend going with? Or are they all much the same?

Or get a android box and use STB Emu (if you want Mag) or use IPTV smarters or loads of other APKs
Thanks Jon. Which would be easier as I have not got a scooby to start with...!!!
