Freesat in Costa del Sol

 

Freesat in Costa del Sol

Freesat in Costa del Sol

UK TV is available to expats in Southern Spain and the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar areas of Spain.

However, with the recent introduction of new UK TV satellites reception of some channels in the Costa del Sol and Southern areas of Spain can be hard.

Reception of the main Freesat TV channels, like BBC and ITV, via satellite, using a Freesat set top box, may mean you have to have a very large satellite dish.

Current estimates are that the size of satellite dish required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat would be at least 4 meters.

 

It is the size of satellite dish that is required to receive BBC and ITV direct from the broadcasters via satellite in the Andalucía and Southern Spain areas that many feel is very restrictive. The size of satellite dish required means that other alternate methods of receiving UK TV are required, such as via the “Intelsat 907 Freeview Back Up” satellite, or via IPTV / Internet TV systems.

However reception of many Sky TV Pay channels in Andalucía and southern Spain, like Sky Sports and Sky Atlantic, is easier, and requires a “small” satellite dish, may be a 90x100cm “1m” dish, or the larger 125x135cm “1.4m” satellite dish.

The map on the link below shows a reception map and the size of satellite dishes for Spain that are able to receive the main UK TV channels.

Freesat TV is available to expats in Southern Spain and the Andalucía areas of Spain.

However, with the recent introduction of new UK TV satellites reception of some channels in the Andalucía and Southern areas of Spain can be hard.

Reception of the main Freesat TV channels, like BBC and ITV, via satellite, using a Freesat set top box, may mean you have to have a very large satellite dish.

For some eastern parts of Andalucía, a minimum 1.8m or 2.4m satellite dish is required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat and Sky.

For some western parts of Andalucía, 2.4m or 3.1m satellite dish is the minimum size required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat.

Freesat in Costa Blanca

 

Freesat in Costa Blanca

Freesat in Costa Blanca

Freesat TV is available to expats in the Costa Blanca area of Spain.

Even with the recent introduction of new UK TV satellites reception of all UK TV channels is very good.

Reception of the main UK TV channels, like BBC and ITV, via satellite, using a Freesat set top box, will mean you have to have a satellite dish measuring a minimum of minimum 110x120cm.

For areas of the Costa Blanca North, a minimum 125x135cm satellite dish is required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat.

For some areas of the Costa Blanca South, a minimum 1.8m satellite dish may be required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat.

With the very good satellite signals in the Valencia and Alicante areas, UK TV by satellite via Freesat is still the best option for watching UK TV channels in that area.

The map on the link below shows a reception map and the size of satellite dishes for Spain that are able to receive the main UK TV channels.

Freesat in Barcelona and Catalonia

Freesat in Barcelona and Catalonia

Freesat is available to expats in northern Spain and the Barcelona and Catalonia areas of Spain.

However, with the recent introduction of new UK TV satellites reception of channels on Freesat in the Barcelona Catalonia and northern areas of Spain can be hard.

Reception of the main UK TV channels, like BBC and ITV, via satellite using Freesat set top box, may mean you have to have a very large satellite dish.

For some eastern parts of Catalonia and northern areas of Spain, a minimum 1.8m satellite dish is required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat.

For some western parts of Catalonia and northern areas of Spain, 2.4m satellite dish is the minimum size required for reception of BBC and ITV via Freesat.

It is the size of satellite dish that is required to receive BBC and ITV direct from the broadcasters via satellite in the Barcelona Catalonia and northern Spain areas that many feel is very restrictive. So many are turning to alternate methods of receiving their UK TV in the Barcelona Catalonia and northern Spain. Alternate TV viewing methods like IPTV, Filmon, Android Smart boxes, Brit TV boxes, and MAG250 IPTV boxes have started to become popular.
