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

There are lots of threads and posts on the Satellite changeover and on 11th December yet another sat launch is expected which could mean further disruption for some currently receiving British television.
I would bring a HUMAX freesat box, buy second hand for £30 or so from ebay and get a local installer to give you their thoughts on picture signal strength and quality, by February 2015 it will have settled into position.

Thanks Shelby
I feel out of my depth with this so will search for someone to supply and set it up.
If you know anyone please let me have contact details.
Some recommended Portuguese people have tried but left me with 350 stations, only two in English.
So I am back to square one now

So you have a dish & a reciever
Do you know size of dish

It's fairly obvious that the PT who've tuned in for you are NOT accessing the right satellite either because they don't know it's position or can't with your location and dish size
