UK Satellite TV Costa Blanca

UK Satellite TV Costa Blanca

UK TV is available to expats in the Costa Blanca area of Spain.

Even with the recent introduction of new UK TV satellites reception of all UK TV channels is very good.

Reception of the main UK TV channels, like BBC and ITV, via satellite, using a Sky digibox, or Freesat set top box, will mean you have to have a satellite dish measuring a minimum of 90x110cm “1m”.

For some areas of Costa Blanca, a minimum 110x120cm satellite dish is required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat and Sky.

For some areas of Costa Blanca, a minimum 125x135cm satellite dish is required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat and Sky.

With the very good satellite signals in the Costa Blanca area, UK TV by satellite (via Sky or Freesat) is still the best option for receiving and watching UK TV.

Reception of many Sky TV channels in Costa Blanca , like Sky Sports and Sky Atlantic, is easier, and requires a “small” satellite dish, may be a 90x100cm “1m” dish, or the larger 125x135cm “1.4m” satellite dish.

The map on the link below shows a reception map and the size of satellite dishes for Spain that are able to receive the main UK TV channels.

With many people and installers getting confused with terminology used for TV, hopefully this guide will help people understand what is and is not available in Spain.

It should also help people to determine what equipment they require to receive UK TV in Spain.

Many times I have been contacted by people who have read incorrect information on the internet, or given bad advice by people. Most have Freeview boxes, and were attempting to connect them to a satellite dish, or expecting UK TV when connecting them to a TV aerial in Spain – both of which is not possible, despite what they may have been told.

Channel Types:
Channels can be broken down into four categories:

Free to air – channels that are transmitted “in the clear”, with no encryption, or subscription. Examples include BBC, ITV, Channel Four.

Free to view – channels that are transmitted with encryption, so require a viewing card, but do not require a subscription.Examples include Motors TV, LFCTV.

Pay channels – channels that are transmitted with encryption, so require a viewing card, and a subscription. Examples include Sky One, Sky Atlantic, Sky Sports

Pay per view – channels that are transmitted with encryption, so require a viewing card, and one off payment. Usually boxing and WWE Wrestling
