How to Watch UK Channels In Hong Kong
I am travelling to Hong Kong (香港) next week, and I am planning to stay there for 4 weeks in Kowloon Peninsula (九龙半岛). Hong Kong is one of the biggest cities in Asia with around 7 million people, and I think it would be nice to stay in this city.
I have been thinking about how I could watch my UK TV channels in Hong Kong as traveling to this city. The sport channels I want to watch as following:
As far as I know, the only solution to watch these channels in Hong Kong is to use an IPTV box.
So I am going to make some reviews about the Internet streaming services and IPTV private servers that I will be using in my new place in Hong Kong in this article for your references. My experience and suggestion on the best service providers (in my own point of views) will also be included.
It is a matter of fact that most of the service providers for TV streams are based in Europe. This means a longer distance for the TV streams to travel (from Europe to Hong Kong). This would normally cause buffering in the TV channels, but I do not think it would be a problem. Hong Kong in fact has a high speed internet with good quality.
Review of MAG Service Providers
I will buy a MAG IPTV box from Fortress or Mongkok Computer Centre (旺角電腦中心) when I arrive in Hong Kong.
You will be able to find all TV boxes you need in Mongkok Computer Centre.
However, you will face a big problem when using a MAG IPTV box because there is not good MAG IPTV service provider. In my experience, most of the service provider has worthless service (except TVLuux.com).
You can look at the following chart to get a generalized idea about some IPTV servers:
|TVLUUX||Platinum IPTV||UKTV anywhere||Tellyconnect.co.uk|
|1000 channels||1200 channels||Perfect for watching UK channels||Mixed UK TV channels and Scandinavian channels|
|No buffering||Sometimes buffering||Buffering when outside UK||Sometimes bad picture quality|
|Good support||Friendly support||Good support||Good support|
|$15 monthly||$40 monthly||$40 monthly||$50 monthly|
|Recommended||Expensive||Very expensive||Very expensive|
Tellyconnect is a little bit costly, but you can choose it if you really like UK based channels. However, I think Platinum IPTV and Tellyconnect are expensive. Instead, TVLuux.com is a great choice. It costs $15 per month with great customer service. There is extensive channel list and I hope you will find all your favorite channels there.
I use TVLuux and I am so satisfied with it as my IPTV suscription provider because its services are of high quality.
