Sky On Demand problems this weekend — 2 Comments

  1. I’m in Cabopino, Marbella and I have my Sky UK card with me. I have a 1.3mtr dish but now I don’t seem to be able to get PBS America, Spike, Really and a couple of other channels. Has something changed with e transmissions? Can I do something to get these lost channels? I’m getting about 65% Signal Strength and 90% Signal Quality. Thanks for any help.

    • PBS, Spike, and Really are free to air channels, so available without your sky card.
      They are all on the UK beam of the satellites, and your dish is simply too small to receive them where you are. So without increasing the size of your dish (like 3 or 4m !) you will not be able to receive these channels.
      Some channels only recently moved to the uk beam – see this more recent post https://www.satandpcguy.com/blog/2015/12/new-freesat-channels-launching-8th-december-2015/ )
      The signal test screen on your Sky box is for one frequency only – the Sky default transponder frequency. UK TV uses about 100 plus frequencies, which is not displayed on that test screen.
