Hi Keef

Do you have Dan's contact details please?

I know of the Taylors, but there's no Dan in the family, as far as I'm aware. However, I have contacted someone called Dan Robert Technology on FB, but he hasn't come back to me yet, so not sure if that's the same Dan you know (confusing :lol: ). Anyway, we're not really ready to go for the full package, with the Sky channels at the mo, as we don't live on the island. But I'd be interested to know whether he offers other packages that would suit us better and we can always upgrade when we're spending more time there.

Cheers

Sue :toasting:

Hi Sue, that’s the same Dan you have contacted, his name is Dan Robert Taylor. He does do other packages, I’m sure he will be in touch with you shortly.

Just an update on the TV situation.

A week went by and Dan hadn't answered my FB message or email, and his website has expired, so I thought he'd 'done one,' as Jeremy Kyle used to say :lol:

So we went to the Mervi Sony Centre in Alaior and bought an IPTV box, which gives us about 60 English channels (including BBC, ITV etc.). It cost 220 Euros, but that includes 60 Euros for a year's TV subscription, (and we just have to pop into the shop next June to renew it), which doesn't work out too expensive in the grand scheme of things. We fitted the box ourselves; actually, the OH did it, so it must've been easy :lol:

Typically after we'd installed the box, Dan emailed me (with a different email address) to say he doesn't use social media much and has closed his website, as he prefers to get customers by 'word of mouth' :roll: which I found a bit odd, as this was a 'word of mouth' recommendation, but I'm still not sure how are people supposed to contact him. The package he was offering works out more expensive than what we've ended up with anyway, so happy days! :grin:

Best contact Dan on Whats app - his subscription has changed to a rolling monthly payment, cancel whenever you feel, rather than annual fees. I pay by paypal.

Hi Kieron

He did eventually email me with details of the package, after we'd been to Mervi and bought their box. However, the only deal he runs now costs 20 Euros per month, plus 165 Euros for the box, so ultimately we're better off paying 60 Euros for the year, as our holidays quite often cross over from one month to another, even if we're only there for a week. This year, for example, would've cost us 140 Euros in subscription fees :shock:
