Yes it does say a minimum of 4mb internet connection so best have faster than that.

Also make sure you are on an unlimited internet package as watching streaming TV online uses huge amounts of data per hour.

I dont believe some of it such as when it says:

The box automatically records every program on almost every channel for 2 entire WEEKS. To watch any program that previously aired, simply scroll back in time and hit play!

The bandwidth required to record all channels at once over an ADSL internet connection is impossible.

Also there is no physical street address of the company operating it anywhere on the site

The recording will be done remotely on their servers. The other thing is that technically this is still illegal, essentially doing the same as filmon. To be honest they may just be wrapping another service like filmon anyway.

It also say all over the site that the box is 1080p, but if it's using any of the standard streaming services I'd very much doubt it would be in anything like high definition. Having said that, if they do have their own hardware streaming the UK tv signals then a higher quality is possible. Either way you have to question whether you're happy to pay for an illegal service.

Didn't look into the site, seen a tweet today from Alan Sugar maybe wrongly
Presumed it to be legit service
