I have a place in the mountains between Gouveia and Guarda and would like to have English tv programmes.
What size dish do I need
Does anyone know someone who can fix it up and tune it in Feb next year
Also what type of receiver box do I need

Thanks
Jackie

Hi Jackie

You are a bit further north than i am and friends here with a 1.8m dish can get all UK Sky channels. I don't have details of the type of receiver box they have.

Plenty of receivers available here & UK depends on whether you want to record or not, generally cheaper in UK.

Sensible :) first to check you have line of sight at 28.4E and can get a signal of sufficient quality for Astra at your location

This site will help you establish that http://www.dishpointer.com/ this is the satellite your after for UK TV 28.4E ASTRA 2E
