What happens if someone calls me when I’m watching TV or the set is turned off?
We have designed the Sentab Hub to control your TV, therefore if a call comes through whilst you are watching a show or the TV is switched off, you will always receive a notification. You can then choose whether to answer the call or not. If you are out when someone tries to call, you will receive a notification on your return, and they can always send you a message.
Are the calls really free or are there hidden charges?
Sentab will not charge you a penny to make either video or voice calls or to send messages to other users of the SentabTV or App. We do recommend that you check your contract with your internet supplier. It is becoming rare, but some may still impose data limits or charge according to the amount of data you use. Our voice calls use much less data if this is the case.

No, calls are also free using the Sentab App. The same recommendation given in Q8 applies regarding data charges.
