Well I haven’t actually noticed any obnoxious odours coming out of my ONdigital box, but it certainly does have some very unpleasant habits. Having said that it also has some 36GG assets, namely the extra channels. The digital television age was much anticipated and when it finally ... Read review

We Must Embrace The Digital Age, Even If It Smells

AdvantagesExtra variety of channels/programmes, not too expensive, it's the future!

DisadvantagesTechnical glitches, lots of poor channels and not that many good ones.

"...odours coming out of my ONdigital box, but it certainly does have some very unpleasant habits. Having said that it also has some 36GG assets, namely the extra channels. The digital television age was much anticipated and when it finally arrived years after the hype had begun (I think that begun with the release of digital watches) it was still hailed as the future. A few years on and it is time to consider the differences that digital television ..." Read review

Whos a Cheeky Monkey then

AdvantagesPortable piece of equipment

Disadvantagessometimes mosaics

"ITV Digital, the new name for On-Digital is advertised by a right cheeky monkey. I work at Boxclever TV shop and the posters of the monkey are attracting people of all ages. So much so that we have signed loads of new and old people up to this newly launched product. When I say newly launched , I mean re-launched under a new name. Old On-Digital customers who came off the scheme have now come back to the company as it will feature a brand new ..." Read review

Off Digital

AdvantagesWe got the monthly subscription half price for a year and thats it

DisadvantagesRubbish compared to Sky Digital, some channels only when when they feel like it, most channels are rubbish, and you dont get as many as sky, picture quality isnt very good

"We got On Digital at the start of November last year, only because my mam got the monthly subscription for half price (it was an offer for the staff where she works). We were going to get Sky Digital but thought we might as well get On Digital for the 12 months to see what it was like since it was cheaper. Firstly the box came quickly, we phoned on the Friday and it was delivered on the Sunday, they told us just to plug it into the back of the ..." Read review

Gets a good reception from me Diamond review

Advantagescheap, extra channels, interactive features

Disadvantagesnot such a great choice of channels as Sky

"Left alone in St Andrews after my exams - all my friends had sensibly gone home for a bit whereas I wasn’t allowed :-( the boredom rapidly set in. I work for the local museum but there’s not much work about until July and August (then there’s loads) and so consequently I have very little to do. Anyway, it was this feeling of boredom that led me to purchase On Digital – I figured that with a few more channels to choose from, ..." Read review

The first box that didn't fit ...

AdvantagesNo dish required.

DisadvantagesToo few channels.Poor signal in many places.

"Didn't I do well??!! I won a prepaid On box on a QXL auction, and paid £46 for it. I was dead chuffed. Oh, and I then paid On £2 a month for six extra channels. Great! Except the channels were rubbish. (Have you seen Discovery Wings? And why are Horizons and Style sharing a channel space? Yep, limited space available. Unlike digital satellite ...) In fact, I already had Sky Digi, and was very happy with it. But you can't whip off your dish and ..." Read review
