Manual says it works on linux after a fairly complex installation but it did not work for me. The EE dongles work great without even installing on linux though.

Hi Kenya,

I can confirm that this product is designed for use with laptops. However, it will only work with items that have a full-sized USB connection. Please check the connections of your device.

I hope this helps,
thank you for using Argos Q&A

I would think so. As long as it has a USB port for the dongle to fit into I can't see why it wouldn't work. All the software is downloaded from the dongle straight onto your device.

Hi there,

I have looked into this and can confirm that 1GB is used when streaming per hour (standard definition). Therefore, this item may not be suitable.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
