Totally different concepts.
Mag 250 is specialised box and will only work with a paid iptv subscription so no free channel use.
Zgemma with a sly dish will give you free to air channels and with internet and a paid sub will give you full channel access.
There is also a range of free iptv apps available for the zgemma box.

Mag is completely internet based and streaming so you need a spot on fast connection for that. Zgemma is either satelite or cable run but need internet to decode channels via your line. The internet doesnt have to be top notch for this all you need is it to be stable constant and a low ping

H2S best box for the money in my opinion and plenty of builds/images to choose from if you don't want to set it up yourself.

For a beginner i'd say so theres different ones single tunner or twin tunners so you can watch one channel and record another

Whats the difference in h2s and the h5 2s other than the tenner in price? Cheers

Only difference is that H5 will run H265 !
Only problem is that there is hardly any material running in H265 so just a feature for the future !!

Cheers for all the info guys. Went for the zgemma h5 2s from zgemma site figured for the slightly higher price it would kinda future proof it for a while. I'm guessing it will be the same to set up as the H2s. Can anyone point me to a good guide for setting up. Thinking of putting the whooshbuild on it. Any suggestions very welcome. Thanks in advance.

Are you a football fan? If you want to get all the games that are not shown on Sky or BT a Magbox would be the way to go with a Smart IPTV sub, then you will get Bein, Astro, Mio, etc. The subs are a bit more expensive than satellite but it's worth it IMO.

You need a sub, then it depends really. You can load it onto your box into a bouquet, or some providers have a plugin you can watch it through your box with, or you can stick it on an android box/PC. Depends on what your supplier offers.
