Best way to set up new TV in Cyprus do i need a box of some kind to get any English channels. Looking to fit it into our 1st rental property or just by a TV assume they have inbuilt free view like uk?

We have Mag250 boxes with a package which gives us all the UK free channels, all the Sky channels and many more. Also video club with lots of films and complete TV series.

Do you just plug it into the Ariel socket then for basic tv channels or do you need the internet access for it to work

Most of us Brits get our UK tv over the internet , our only choice now Sky is gone .

So the first cost , internet service .

Then either a dedicated box or use your PC , laptop whatever , then a lot of free options Kodi and filmon , etc .

Also you can get the iplayers , but you will need a VPN , another cost but a low one , about 5€ a month.

A lot of us use the Mag box , in my opinion the best , but you have to pay for a service provider , from 7€ to about 30€ a month , depending on how many channels you want .

Tv via an aerial gets you Greek channels as mentioned and Euronews .

You need a tv with an HDMI connection. That is where you plug the box into. The guy we use supplies the boxes as well.
