Astra 2E Signal Reception Map – addressing the rumours about what this map shows — 4 Comments

  1. Hi,

    When / If the Costa del Sol loses the freeview channels if somebody has a Sky HD Subscription will they still recieve the HD channels from Sky?

  2. Neil:
    BBC ITV C4 are channels that are nothing to do with Sky, no do they need a Sky subscription.
    If you liv in an area where you cannot receive BBCHD ITVHD C4 HD, then a sky HD subscription will not help – simply these channels are not part of the Sky subscription package.
    As for the Sky HD pay channels, it all depends which satellite beams they put the channels on…if they are on the European beam, then they should be no problem. If they are on a UK beam, then some areas of Spain may have reception issues, and may need to upgrade to a larger dish.
    But for some areas, where some Sky pay channels still require a 2.4m dish, it may also mean that these channels may be available on much smaller dishes.

    • Thanks for that. I’m talking about people who can recieve and pay for Sky HD Packages.
      If they pay Sky for the HD Channels, BBC1 HD, Channel4 HD, will they still recieve them when the freeview channels are moved?
      I was under the opinion that if they pay Sky for these HD Channels then Sky have to provide these HD Channels?

  3. Neil: Again BBC1HD BBC2HD, ITV1HD C4HD are nothing to do with Sky, and are all available without a Sky subscription. It makes no difference if you subscribe to Sky HD or not, these HD channels are nothing to do with Sky or any Sky subscription package.
    If you do lose them where you are, subscribing to SkyHD will not return them.
    ITV2HD, ITV3HD and ITV54 HD are the only ITV HD channels available as part of the Sky HD package.
