    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    I'm pretty sure PlayTV only had dual DVB-T tuners, not DVB-S so you won't be able to use it for Sky.

    In a word .. No.

    Play tv is purely a freeview tuner.

    Yeah, freeview only - it's effectively just an expensive usb TV dongle with proprietory software.

    Wish there was a Freesat version, that way you could get BBC HD and ITV HD.
