    Sky Sports

    I'm in Torrevieja and I have a sky subscription i get Sky Sports 1,2 & 3 but i cannot get Sky sports Xtra or Sky Sports news are these on a weaker signal. I have a 2.4 metre dish and i get BBC2 for at least 12 hours a day.

    ssxtra and ssn and about 30+ other channels (hallmark, eurosport2, uk people, many uk tv+a, the sky guide EPG) are on the tricky to get North beams.
    from what i understand this beam is weakest in you area from about 2pm to 8pm...in my area (north of you) they are weakest from about 3pm to 6pm.
    also some sky digiboes do not like these frequencies - particuarly the pace 440 and 445....
    and i have noticed sometimes that a 1.8m dish can bring in the channels, yet a 2,4 cannot...maybe it has something to do with the 2..4 receiving similar frequencies from nearby satellites...
    they are also very LNB skew sensitive...a fraction of a mm can make a difference, as well as if the LNB is not pointing at the exact centre of the dish....all of which can be resolve / improved by a visit from your insataller....
