    Sat in Spain

    have a place in playa flamenca and want to look at british TV.

    Had sat but from telemicro (i know but in all honesty did not know it was dodgy) just bought place and already installed. Now need replacement. Can you advise options.

    1. Cost for sat system to view standard english channels with no monthly cost?

    2. Cost for sat system with small monthly costs with the option of upgrading to sports, similar to sky in the uk?

    3. Cost for a freesat system? to view english channels?

    Looking to install soon, when we arrive on holiday.

    Thanks

    many people did not know that rebroadcasters are retransmitting channels without the permission from the actual channels - which is illegal under european law (see rome convention)

    to view the main UK TV channels (bbc itv c4s) and many other free to air (non subscription channels you will need a big dish - a 1.8m should do for your area - but even with that some channels will not be available 24/7 (bbc2)
    if you are not bothered about the main UK TV channels (bbc itv c4s) then you can get a few (like true movies, a few news a few bbc radios) on an 80 or 1m dish.
    you can use a sky box, a freesat box or a generic free to air box.

    many pay tv channels provided by sky can be received on an 80 - 1m dish.
    sky subscription charges are from 17GPB per month
    sky sports is a premium PAY TV channel - expect to pay a minimum of 36 GPB per month for the sports channels.

    you can go for the spansih Digital+ service, spains version of sky - prices are about the same, but you WILL NOT GET bbcs or ITvs on the spansih system - you will get spanish version sof other channels like discovery and nat geo, and many of their sports channels / programmes only have spanish commentary
