    There is a bucketload of deficiencies with this device which should have been foreseen!!!!

    I personally find it bizarre Comcast would choose to put its Sky over the internet eco-system into a TV and not a box. And THEN not release the full details of it.

    All I've managed to garner about this product is that its made under the licence of a Chinese company called TP Vision and that the units are manufactured in Amsterdam.

    TP Vision is the name of the company in Amsterdam.
    This is a subsidiary of a Chinese company called TPV Technology.

    It's really not very difficult to figure this out:

    @jimb Indeed. So when someone asks as I did does anyone know where the panels originate, before the information became public? There are two possible answers: no; or made up I know everything rubbocks.

    There are indeed two possible answers 
    Right answer or wrong answer. 
    But since when did it become OK to have a go at those that tired to help but got it wrong...

    Let those without Jimb cast the first stone.

    I've just seen the bundle package prices for this and it ain't cheap. You know that ATMOS soundbar that comes built into the TV with HDR? That'll be £5 a month sir.

    Netflix - £13.99 (Premium) rip off
    Amazon - £7.99
    Disney+  £7.99

    Sky glass - its a bit more than all the above combined. And by that I mean a lot.

    (Not sure how this is relevant to Sky Glass.)

    My bad.
    I got this info from Cord busters which couldn't put two words together without making comparison with Sky glass. 
    At the official launch Virgin/02 head of development (Jeff Dodds) again made direct comparison with this and Sky glass.
    Also Sky are about to launch Sky Puck which is Sky glass minus the tv ....so your right no similarities at all.

    Ignore this if you disagree.

    Apart from the fact that Sky Glass is available with any ISP, while Virgin Stream isn't? Feel free to post your usual astute comments on the Virgin Stream thread. 
  • kodikidkodikid Member Posts: 883 ✭✭
    Is that the same Virgin stream thread that mentions Sky glass in the third sentence?
    Ignore this if you disagree. 
  • redchizredchiz Member, Super User Posts: 5,351 ✭✭✭
    Where I mentioned that the payment model is similar? Yep, that's the one.
  • kodikidkodikid Member Posts: 883 ✭✭
    There's that word similar again.....

    Mmm, yes, it's quite a common word in regards to products and services which share certain things in common, whilst nevertheless having distinctive features of their own. Perhaps we should just have a single topic called "Stuff" where we can discuss everything and lose every last vestige of a semblance of order on these forums? Feel free to start it and the rest of us can ignore it and/or spam it as we see fit?
