BBC / ITV / Channel 4 & 5
Channel 5 (105) and Channel 4 Seven (140) are on a spot beam making their signal very strong in the UK and very weak in Europe.
In Geneva a 60CM Dish picks up these channels OK.
In the South of France the 80cm Dish we supply was working but small changes by the Satellite operator now make these channels either not receivable or receivable only some of the time.
Upgrading to a much bigger dish would help but the huge size of a 1.8 metre dish is not an option for most people.
Towards the end of 2013 or early 2014 all BBC / ITV / Channel 4 & 5 will be on this UK Spot beam and require this type of very large dish.
If you have a Sky Plus HD Box connect through our Hopper Box to your internet router and use Catch up services like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD & Demand Five. So this way you can use a small 80cm Dish and still watch all your favourite shows from BBC, ITV, Four & Five on Catch up.
Don't worry the installer brings the 80 CM dish and Hopper Box with him on the day he visit's you.
Sky Channels like Sky One, Sky News, Sky Movies, Sky Sports etc. are not affected and are easily receivable across Europe on small satellite dishes.
