It is coming around to that time of year again and Edinburgh comedy festival headline acts have been announced. For those of you who do not know Edinburgh comedy festival is like the Glastonbury of the comedy scene with the best acts from all around the world coming to visit. This year the festival begins on the 3rd of August until the 27th of August 2018. Edinburgh is a great city at the worst of times and with the comedy festival in town it is sure to be another great few weeks in the city. Acts such as Sean Lock, Jimmy Car and Bill Burr are set to be headlining the show this year.
We would also like to give a shout out to deko products who are sponsoring the show. They are a UK company selling golf range finders and laser measuring tools in Europe so a big shout out to them for helping some of the smaller acts get to the festival who can’t financially otherwise make it. Accommodation in the city is set to be quite expensive for this period as travelers from around the world floor the city looking for cheap accommodation. We would highly recommend booking hostels asap for those looking to do this trip on a lower budget. Higher end hotels will not book out as quick but will usually book out at some stage.
It is funny how as an outsider you can see the little changes that takes a country. There are many Irish who move to Australia as the Irish have access to a 1 year visa which can be gotten by any Irish citizen. Thousands of Irish move each year to Australia for a taste of the sun and the great outdoor lifestyle and with them they bring many good business ideas. Irish people are well known to be TV addicts, perhaps due to the cold climate so they are forced indoors for several months of the year. When coming to Australia John Doyle noticed that not many people had heard of an Android TV box and decided to start selling them here on his Facebook page. Word started to spread about these boxes and soon he was drowning in orders.
From there he decided to expand the range of android boxes he had and to even open his own website at Android TV Australia where he ships the boxes nationwide with Australia Post. As the android boxes became more well known his business grew and now he lives full time in Australia after only thinking he would go there for a year.
It is a great example of someone moving to another country and seeing an opportunity to setup a business with an idea that is very popular back home. There are many of these stories and now the android box is very popular in Australia as it is in Ireland.
Years ago before the internet it used to be people visiting America to pick up tips and business ideas and bring them back to Europe but as the internet developed and the world became more like America these opportunities seem to be few and far between. So keep an eye out next time your on holidays..it could pay off!
For those of you who are not familiar the openbox V8S is a freesat receiver box. It allows you to get all of the freesat receiver channels without having to pay for an expensive subscription to companies like Sky or BT who can charge over €100 per month for access to all of their channels. In saying that of course some of these channels are subscription based such as Sky or BT sports and these are not available on an Openbox V8S without a subscription. It is true that there are sellers on market place websites such as Ebay selling what is known as “gifts” which essentially means free access to subscription channels. This is of course illegal and companies such as Sky and BT are putting pressure on these websites to ban such sellers.
With that said over 100 channels are available for free on the Openbox V8S and this is what the box is made for. It is not made to be used in an illegal fashion by the company Vontar who make the boxes. Other than the subcription based sports channels the Openbox V8S pretty much gets everything else that is offered on the Sky box with the exception of the movies channels and MTV. Considering the savings that can be made it is something to consider and it will even work with your existing Sky satellite dish. So if you already have Sky then all you need to do is plug out your Sky box and plug in the Openbox receiver and you are instantly watching free to air channels without any monthly bills. This is a great option for those looking to save money. The Openbox V8S goes for about €75.00 so it is not going to break the bank and some people are paying that per month on subscription TV.
