Igloo Is Now Closed
HOW TO WATCH FREEVIEW CHANNELS THROUGH YOUR IGLOO BOX
When IGLOO closed on the 1st March, your box should have received an automatic update so that you may still be able to watch Freeview channels. This update means you won’t have some functionality and technical support you normally get from IGLOO but should let you watch Freeview channels through your box. You need to ensure your box is plugged in and turned on during 1st-15th March to receive this update.
Didn’t get the update?
If your TV doesn’t look like this after 1st March this means you haven’t received the automatic update. To manually download the update, grab a USB stick and follow the steps below:
- Ensure the USB stick has been cleared or formatted
- Download this file on to a cleared USB. The file name should end in .SDL
- Safely remove the USB from your computer and then pop it into the USB slot on the back or left hand side of your IGLOO box. It will look like this (insert image).
- Once the USB is in the IGLOO box, turn off the power at the plug for about 10 seconds.
- Switch the IGLOO box back on. It will begin to reboot and download the info from your USB stick. This will take about 10 minutes and you’ll be able to see the progress on your screen. While this is downloading, you won’t be able to use your IGLOO box.
- Once the download is done you can take out your USB stick. You’ll know the download happened as there won’t be any IGLOO branding on your screen anymore but there should be a basic TV guide for you to use. If you run into trouble or are unable to do this, call us on 0800 2 44566 and we’ll sort you out.
