Deev8:jamesrobert: Change to the broadcast-only option for $18.70 a month
Paying $224.40 each year to get free-to-air TV is still a reasonably expensive option.
Agreed. You also have to pay another $240/year for the MySky+ rental. So $460/year for a PVR with FTA channels.
I think both the Panasonic and MagicTV are likely great options depending on the exact features you want. Doesn't take long to recover the purchase cost either.
