Need a new thermostat for father-in-law, would be better with a programmed thermostat and remove the existing programmer as well, wired S plan and it also does the hot water as well as heating so if I just replace existing thermostat with a programmable thermostat will have to set old programmer to continuous or put in a shorting wire.

So it seems to lend itself to Hive, the boiler is not modulating so no real point in using Nest.

I could put a signal booster on an extension lead to set it up, I live next door but one, but it would be removed once set.

Take it from me a hard wired thermostat is much easier to use. Just turn it up or down as required. The likes of Hive are too complicated I feel. Leave heating on 24 and use thermostat to control comfort.

I understand you only need internet access if you want to use the Hive app to remotely control its functions. Not sure if it uses the internet to get local weather information.
BTW, I understand your dilemma in trying to choose a suitable replacement thermostat.
So many options and obviously you don't want to make a costly mistake.
Hopefully the other guys will be on later to share their experience and advice.
