What Makes Astra2 Different?
We're big enough to handle thousands of viewers, and small enough to directly support your custom. Many online services offer access to watch UK TV by laptop or PC and connecting through complicated virtual private networks (VPNs) or proxy servers, but these solutions only allow access to services you might not have access to such as iPlayer and 4OD. We are different. We give you a true live TV experience akin to the one you have become accustomed to when using a modern satellite or cable service. You can watch TV channels live on your regular TV, catchup on anything aired in the last 7 days, and because we are using the internet to deliver content we can deliver it anywhere you have internet access.
Smart-time 30 day catch up. We record so you don't have to! We keep every single program on our servers for you to watch when your ready. For great content like dramas, documentaries, movies, comedy shows, and soaps, we keep for a full 30 days. This means you never have the need to miss a thing. You don't even have to remember to record!. Other content like news, breakfast tv, kids and less important content is kept for a full 7 days.
As with all online streaming video services you will need a constant internet connection. We recommended that your internet connection's download speed be at least 1.5Mbs, where most internet service providers (ISP) provide between 3Mbs and 5Mbs when using ADSL. Fibre-optic connections are typically many times faster.
If you are unfamiliar or uncertain regarding your internet connection speed we recommend using one of the many online connection speed testing services to get an exact, and practical, measurement of your connections capabilities. One such site we use is Speedtest.net. Please remember when using such a service it is the download speed that is important, not the upload speed.
