Default Re: SATALITE IN APARTMENT

As a professional - can you by any chance explain why Sky is not legally available over here?? Surely Sky could be making a fortune and yet they cut you off in your prime if they suspect anything funny going on??
How do all the Brits Bars get away with advertising Sky Sports etc.etc. when it is not actually legal - do none of the Sky Directors ever come to Mallorca for their holidays?? Does anyone know the answer to this question that has bugged me for years now.
I have the Spanish Canal plus Digital system which is not bad as they do show most of the programmes and films in the original language but I shall this winter find out about getting the BBC and ITV channels which sounds like I need a Freeview receiver - I shall pop along to David Panther who is always on tops of whats the best option as the cool winter nights start drawing in and thoughts of sofas and tvs come to mind . . . ages away yet.

Sky now offer a service called Freesat. It gives you all of the free channels including all BBC and ITV for a one off fee of 20.

Not surprisingly Sky do not advertise this service. You just need to ring Sky to order your card then activate it in the UK before you go.

We have done this and it works no problem.

For more details go to www.freesatfromsky.com. You have to go to the Q&A section to find out about the 20 offer.

Hope this helps

I think the link may be www.freesatfromsky.co.uk & it does say:

"I already have digital satellite equipment - what else do I need?
All you need to get access to the free channels available on the digital satellite platform is a freesat viewing card which costs just 20."
