Ex-Pat TV Newsletter – June 2013
Welcome to the June edition of the Ex-Pat TV Newsletter.
We have some exciting news this month as we have been busily working away behind the scenes to improve our data centres and servers around the world as well as our software to ensure the service remains the best in the industry. Major System Upgrade
At the end of June we will be suspending the Ex-Pat TV service for a period of about 3 hours from midnight until 3am BST so we can undergo a major improvement to our server system. This is a result of the huge uptake in the Ex-Pat TV service over the last 6 months. As a result we can ensure you the best possible viewing quality for many years to come on the Ex-Pat TV service. We will also be adding some new channels to our line up at this point. We will email all existing subscribers at the time of the upgrade with more information.
NEW Software update available in the Google Store App
We have a new piece of software for the Ex-Pat TV receiver which will soon be available in the Google Store. You simply need to access the store and download the upgrade. Once it is available we will inform all subscribers so you can update your receiver.
We will shortly be announcing our new line up of channels from the USA. Our new state of the art data centre in the USA is prepared for the service and we will be completing our testing to ensure that the download speeds are at the level you would expect from Ex-Pat TV. We expect to announce the new channels at the end of June when they will be available for viewing.
Australian Data Centre
Due to the huge number of Ex-Pats living in the country. we have added a new data centre in Australia which means that our subscribers in the territory will be guaranteed the perfect picture quality expected from Ex-Pat TV. By inserting a second data centre between the main server and your receiver, it ensures that the download speed is maintained at a low level, so our servers do the hard work – not your broadband connection. If you live in Australia or New Zealand and would like to test the theory, please ask us for a Free Trial.
Hotels – a Special mention
Last month we mentioned that we have many more Hotels joining Ex-Pat TV to ensure that their guests can continue to receive UK & Scandinavian TV whilst abroad. Below is just a small selection of hotels and bars that have joined up with us in the last month. If you visit any of them, be sure to ask them to watch UK or Scandinavian TV channels from Ex-Pat TV!

What is Ex-Pat TV?
Believe it or not, we do still get asked a great deal of questions about how our service works and what our Set Top box does. The reason for this is that our service is such a change from the way UK TV is currently retransmitted around the world that a lot of people simply don’t grasp first time how it works. So here goes…
1. We do not use a Virtual Private Network, so you don’t need one.
2. We do not use PC’s, so you don’t need any IP masking software.
3. We do not use a Slingbox service; so again, you do not need a Slingbox!
In fact, all you need is a broadband router and a TV set. Picture a Freeview box from the UK, which instead of plugging into your TV aerial, you plug into your broadband router.
That’s it! No VPN, no PC, no IP masking! Just a Set Top Box, and a TV (and a comfy armchair for you) gets you LIVE TV from the UK.
Try it Now for FREE
Due to the fantastic uptake of the service, we are continuing to offer our Ex-Pat TV Free Trial service, because, well, people just don’t believe us when we tell them what this box can do with 0.5Mbps of bandwidth, a plug socket and a TV set. If you don’t, then try it out in your own home on an iPad, an iPhone or your PC. Okay you won’t see it on your TV set, but you will get the bandwidth test and see that it is possible to watch UK TV abroad, direct to your TV set, without a VPN, without a PC, without masking your IP address, and without using a Slingbox!!
