    Questions about UK TV in Spain - Sky TV in Spain

    Popular questions asked on search engine sites for Sky TV in Spain and Enligh Television on Costa Blanca

    "english tv satellite frequencies for the costa blanca"

    The satellite frequencies used by Sky and Freesat in Spain are exactly the same frequencies used for reception of Sky and Freesat in the UK. The signals are transmitted from the same 4 satellites, Astra 2a, Astra 2b, Astra 2d and Eurobird 1.

    BBC TV on the Costa Blanca

    ITV TV on the Costa Blanca

    Channel 4 TV on the Costa Blanca

    Channel Five TV on the Costa Blanca

    Sky TV on the Costa Blanca

    "sky satellite position"

    There are a few different country variations of Sky.

    Sky UK satellites are located at 28.2 to 28.5 degrees east of south. The signals are transmitted from the same 4 satellites, Astra 2a, Astra 2b, Astra 2d and Eurobird 1.

    Sky Italia is located on the Hotbird satellite located at 13 degrees east of south.

    Sky Deutschland (Germany) is located on the Astra 1 satellites located at 19 degrees east of south.


    "abu dhabi sports channel premier league"

    The FA Premier League retendered the broadcast rights for the English Premier League for the 2010-20011 season and the following two seasons.
    Showtime Orbit, on Nilesat 7 west, lost these rights for the Abu Dhabi Media Company.
    ADMC have, as of today, not release many details, apart from all games will be shown, and with English commentary.
    Subscription prices and receiver prices details are sketchy.
    There has been no indication as to which satellites they will be using or the frequencies they will be using or if those signals can be received in Spain.

    ADMC - UK Football in Spain

    "3pm premier league viewing card"

    3pm kickoffs for the English Premier League are not allowed to be show on UK TV channels, at a risk of a fall in attendances.
    However, some non UK satellite broadcasters are able to show 3pm football games, many with English commentary.
    For example Setanta Ireland, Digital+ (D+ - Spain), Sky Italia, Sky Germany, Canal Digital (France)

    "can i add channels on a sky freeview card"

    Freeview is a different system to sky.
    Freeview is a terrestrial TV system only available in the UK.
    A ”freesatfromsky” card allows access to the "free to view" channels on sky.

    Freesatfromsky in Spain

    In theory, it is possible to upgrade a freesatfromsky card to a subscription card and to add sky subscription channels to that card, by contacting sky.

    Hi and welcome.
    I am not too sure what the problem you are trying to describe is....?

    To help the sky box boot up you do services, 401 select, 2, 12129 (or any other frequency you can receive), save and withing 30 seconds channels hsould be available. This has not changed for the last few years so not too sure what you mean by "I was told its no longer 401 but another number? "
    On a sky HD box the processs is 001 and not 401.

    "found how too find the "the secret installer" - for what reason did you need to access this menu? had you lost all channels?

    "but now they have gone again " - sorry but I do not know what you mean has gone again?

    Not too sure what LNB codes you mean, these are standard LNB settings of 9.75 and 10.60. If you changed these LNB settings then your Sky box wil not work as it should.

    " I CANNOT RECORD OFF MY SKY+ BOX NOW" - can you reecive any channels at all? if you try to record say Sky news what on screen message do you get?

    Apologies, but I do not have enough information about the problems you are having to give better answers.
