    FREESAT

    Hi
    I visited the FREESAT site and read that you have to enter a UK post code into the box before it would work.if i entered my daughters UK postcode here in Spain would the box work the same as in the UK and can you get the FREESAT channels/

    Re: FREESAT

    freesat uses the same satellite signals as the "sky" system, so as long as you have got the relevant size dish, you will get freesat.

    the boxes rely on you to input your postcode so that your bbc and itv regions on the box are set accordingly.
    but it may be advantageous to put in a postcode for the stongest signals for your area - in my area channel islands (both bbc and itv) are a strong signal - so i put in a jersey postcode.

    Re: FREESAT

    Supershaw,
    My Humax Freesat box arrives later this week. As we both live in the same area (Albatera) I was wondering what area (regarding postcode) did you use when setting up the box to get the strongest signal? Did you by any chance get the strongest signal with the suggested Channel Island postcode?

    Regards
    Meliebee
