It's true you can surf the Net on your TV with this box although it's a bit slower than a computer, and there are apps for Netflix, Youtube, Video unlimited (pay per view films) and Twitter etc. but it's NOT compatible with Lovefilm, Demand5, itv player, NowTV or BT Sport. However although there are no apps for BBC iplayer or 4OD at least you can access the content from their web sites. Many of the apps from the app store don't work but for me few of them are worth bothering with anyway. I have connected my Freesat pvr to it but the sound sometimes goes off in PIP mode. In my view the keyboard on the reverse side of the remote is much too small and the on screen cursor sometimes has a mind of it's own! To sum up if you can put up with it's shortcomings then all well and good but then again if you can connect up your laptop to your TV with a HDMI lead you can save your money.
