Do you know if there are any service providers for them now in Zihua. We bought one last year on Amazon and was getting service from Siditel but since October they cannot send any programming to it anymore.

I just dropped a Roku three off with a receiver and blue ray player to the electronics repair guy. On Cerrada cuauhtemoc. It worked. I just bought an android box I thought was superior using epic stream.

I'm bringing mine down next week. I will let post how it works. The place you are using, for service, is the best.

To be honest it was never used as I had an Apple TV and use a vpn for local Canadian tv. I had used the roku in theUsa when visiting my daughter.

I have internet service with Tel Mex. I connect another router to the Tel Mex modem and use a VPN($80/yr.) to subscribe to and use Sony Playstation VUE. Just like watching live TV in the States with a DVR in the cloud.

Do you have to use a Sony Playstaion, or will a smart tv work with that set-up? TYIA

yes it works with a smart tv however you need the second router with the vpn loaded in. That is what Sabai Technology does for you. Look at them online and call them. Ruth will solve your problems.

If you are in Zihua I will help you. Once set up it is a dream for me.

Thank-you. I'll get ahold of Ruth.
I don't arrive until the first week of May, but I'd love your help if you're available then. Thanks again.

We are in Zihua year round. I'd be happy to help out. When I explain the system I use many people find it complicated when in fact it only requires buying 2 items and 2 services: Sabai router with the Strong VPN software pre-loaded, a Roku Premiere or Stick, Strong VPN service and a Sony VUE subscription. Se you in May.
