Just had my renewal for the next 3 months and it's gone up from €18 to €20 per month for the basic package. Bit disappointed TBH....I know it's only a measly €2 per month but there are other people offering this service who also seem to get good reviews.

I've just made an enquiry for the ZKTV service and was quoted (by Paul) €25 per month - he said that people have been paying this for the last year in respect of the basic package? Is this true?

Yes, €25 pcm is what I have been paying for the past year or do, and I consider it pretty good value. Not sure where the cheaper price comes from unless, perhaps, longer-standing customers have been kept on a preferential rate? No idea but, as I say, I'm happy to pay the current price, even with the recent rise.

Yes, that's fair enough - and €18 on top for sports? Gets a bit pricey but probably worth it for a stable service with good support?

I think there was a cheaper tariff without VOD,  40 Euros a month for TV, catch up TV, Videos, Sport (Sky, BT and all the Saturday Premier League 3pm kick offs) is great value and a darn sight cheaper than Sky.

ZTV are providing the main 5 UK channels in HD at no extra cost in June and July so customers can watch the Euro championships and Wimbledon in HD.

ZTV are replacing the existing sport offering which costs 15 Euros a month with stations added to their TV channels. The new service will cost an additional 8 euros per month for those currently without sports.
The current sports channels will terminate on 31/8.
The new service will provide all Premiership matches and selected championship and football league matches via mainly BEIN TV. Other channels will include all types of sport including golf and cricket.
The channels will not include Sky and BT

Not quite sure what you mean here? ZKTV don't provide Internet, only IPTV service. They will however help us get the best deal with Movistar for Internet Service.
If you are asking what the speed of the Internet doing other things whilst watching TV through ZKTV I have noticed no difference in performance.

I haven't found a way of preventing them appearing but pressing OK will clear one from your screen. From what I understand the info banners are put on the system when deemed appropriate but if you haven't got your system running at the time they will build up in the background and then all feed through when you switch on. It does mean that you need to sit with your thumb on the OK button for a few minutes sometimes!

The ZKTV system continues to give good value, in both picture quality and selection of channels. I am getting a bit of stick from the wife for watching too much football now on most days and when that is not on I am watching the golf.

In comparison to the ZKTV system I understand that FILMON now charge €15 a month for 20 channels and no catch-up and most of the android boxes no longer can show free UK TV Stations.

Have to say we've had the ZKTV service running for a few months now - and have been so impressed with it that I bought another MAG box to set it up in the UK (enabling us to bin off a £90+ per month contract with Virgin Media in the process).

Never met the bloke but Paul does also go above and beyond in terms of customer service - simply do not have a bad word to say about it.

Just reading all the posts below and remembering back to the time when the only way you would get UK tv or SKy on the Island was to istall a 3m Satalitte
dish or watch it in the pub, now there are a lot of choices on the island for tv viewing. I am of the view go with whatever tv provider your happiest with.  remember most people who go to live in Fuerteventura go there to live the dream lucky beggers! and stressing about which is the best tv service is not part of the dream.
Not everybody is tech savvy so if there is a provider who will supply and maintain the service at a cost and you are happy to pay for it go for it
For those who are getting free tv service via kodi boxes or any android devices and i am one remember you get what you pay for.

I think the Island has everything now
lots of Sunshine, very laid back lifestyle, daily flights and the internet which will get better as the big service providers will ramp up there service.
am i missing anything?

Have been with ZKTV for a while now. However, as there are so many other iptv providers who are cheaper, considering changing to another iptv provider. Anyone changed from ZKTV and tried another provider? If so be nice to hear your experience and if you were happy that new provider provided as good a service as ZKTV or if you went back to ZKTV.

When I see some of the prices it seems that ZKTV are perhaps over priced in the present market.

I was with ZKTV and changed, only because i got a better deal.....nothing wrong with ZKTV programming or service. I pay 125 € for 6 months. Have all UK terrestrial channels in HD with 7 day catch up. All sky and bt sports and bein sports.....can watch every EPL game live at 3pm on a Saturday. Have over 4k films and box sets on demand.

For a little over 20 € per month its superb value for money. I have a mag 254 box

Sounds like we are using the same service. Plus the agent for me lives close by. I know the rules about advertising apply on the forum company names. However I found the company looking in "The Voice" magazine.

I`m not knocking ZKTV was with it for a while and was pleased with what it offered. However the price crept up over time.

Are there any iptv providers who provide a PAYG service. I have tried the kodi option & tbh just too much faffing about. Also tried a number of the iptv apps for ios & these are all pretty rubbish as well. Would like something where I can buy the box, pay for a month or so when we are out here & just sit down switch on & select a channel. TIA
