Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

Would think it is certainly possible but the downside would be that not too many dongles have unlimited downloads so you would use up your allowance quite quickly, even though you would be streaming it would still count as a download. It has been a while since I looked but maybe there are unlimited packages now.

Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

As the others say, dongle uses up very quickly. it is so much easier now to get phone line in and that is really the best way for the transfer. Presume you know that you can only watch what they are watching back in your home in UK on sling box unless you leave house vacant. do let us know how it goes for you.

Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

Hi, I have actually done this. Picture was just about ok but as others have said you will use up your dongle allowance very quickly. I could not find a supplier with unlimited use. To give you some idea of usage I think 1gb gave me about 2hrs of viewing.
I am considering getting a temporary residence permit and getting a phone line installed. I don't think there is any other way.
The best way is to use skygo via a vpn. Still massive internet usage though.

What do you you mean by 800/900 bps.

My ADSL package is up to 8 Mbps download speed, I have just tested my actual speed with BTW Performance Test in the UK and I am getting 6.67 download and 0.66 upload and the time is 6am. A dongle will be slower (download at least).

Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

I use an app on my 3G iphone to watch my slingbox, can also view on my computer if within a wifi zone.

Some of the free WIFI zones are slow and limited resulting in poor picture quality, watchable nevertheless.

The faster the broadband speed the better the picture quality, looking forward to trying the slingbox in May from our Site Wifi connection.

Doubt the dongle will give you value for money.

Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

Is this a turkish iphone as opposed ot one brought from outside turkey? Does it not use up huge downloads? I have just got the iphone 5 16 but would think it would be too expensive to use for tv. Wd appreciate more advise please, thanks.

Re: dongle to stream TV from UK

Not sure about Turkey, but I recently in the USA I used 3g on my UK Vodafone to put a photo on facebook, and e mail the same photo to a couple of friends, cost me best part of £16

Speed of the latest dongles with Turkcell is amazing. Download measured last Sept in Tuzla near Bodrum as just over 10meg.
