My apologies to the FE for deviating from PC problems but can anyone tell me if Satellite TV is available in spain and of course in English. Sky tell me they no longer transmit to europe. Any info would be welcome. I post this question here as I have had PC replies from spain in the past. Regards.Meshuga.
Sky don't broad cast to specific places - satellites broadcast everywhere!
What matters is how strong the signal strength is in a particular area, as to what you can actually receive.
Basically you can just about get anything anywhere with the right equipment - but in some araes that means a 2.4m dish, a top flight LNB (.3dB noise factor), and a top performing receiver (and no- they're not all the same).
If you let me know whereabouts, I can give you more detailed answers, and what you need to know about cards and subscriptions too. Email me if you would like a more detailed response - in some areas I can recommend a good, technically competent installer too.
Subscriptions are a touchy business - that's whay you need advice. Cards need to be registered to a UK address. It is an open secret (including with Sky) that many hundreds of thousands of cards registered to UK addresses are actually in use outside the UK. They are getting their dosh, so on that level at least they are not concerned, as no piracy is involved.
Many thanks to all who have responded, namely Powerless, DieSse, JackD, and AubreyS. To AubreyS, I think I get the underlying message in your post. I`d be interested in hearing from you so perhaps you would like to email me using the envelope alongside my post. Regards, Meshuga Senior.
