There any update on the soft launch and where we can get a box from?
No update. Other than what's already been posted here.
I've sent @sansom a PM requesting inclusion for my existing Vodafone TV device, but I haven't heard anything yet.
I'm taking the silence to be a good thing while Vodafone decide how they launch a new device (at a fixed price) and at the same time offer an software upgrade to existing devices. I'm sure that they want to avoid upsetting existing customers and equally don't want an administration nightmare of servicing two types of customer.
Personally, as a new user of the Vodafone TV device, I'm happier than I was with my Sky box and I don't want to be changing my setup too close to the start of the Rugby World Cup.
