Can you use FTA EPG?
« on: September 26, 2015, 04:45:20 AM »
Is it possible to enable the free to air EPG as sent by the broadcasters and use the Skippa just for the ad detection?

Also, what happens if you buy a Skippa once the "offers" have expired and later decide not to pay further subscription fees? Does it mean that it will become a PVR without ad skipping and without an EPG?

At this stage all Skippa come with lifetime IceTV EPG.

You cannot access the normal free to air EPG (as far as I can work out) but you can access the FreviewPlus EPG, but as far as I can work out you cannot schedule timers using it.

Hey peteru,

SKIPPA uses only our custom IceTV guide and can not access the fta guide. As Ian rightly pointed out there is also the FreeviewPlus guide available while using the HbbTV catchup services.

SKIPPA will always have a full IceTV subscription, so you will always be able to create Series Recordings, browse the EPG, etc. If you decide to purchase without lifetime AutoSkip, it will still remain a full PVR with the EPG even once the trial of AutoSkip ends.
