Have a look on Dave Sullivans website just google Caravan Satellite.You do need a bigger dish and as good an LNB as you can afford for southern Spain.You can save about a third of the price if you buy in Spain as we did.

Hello Peter.You will need a card from Sky to receive ITV,Ch4 & Ch5.All of the BBc programmes can be viewed without a card. We use a 90cm dish and a low noise LNB for Spain...perfect picture (better than home!). Did try standard Sky minidish but could only get Skynews and BBc parliament(!!!).

You don't need a subscription in order to receive BBC or the ITV News Channel. For all other ITV programmes you do. However, once you get into the far south of France and even more so in Spain, you will need a fairly large dish (about 90cm) in order to get a lot of channels properly. Have a look under http://www.ses-astra.com/market/british_isles/tvradio/index.shtml All channels on Astra 2D will require a larger dish, those on Astra 2 will get by with a mini-dish, even in Spain. It also tells you which channels are 'free-to-view', i.e. where you don't need a subscription. When setting up it's easiest to have a look where someone else's dish is pointing to for initial rough adjustment. Fine adjustment is easiest with a field strength meter. They're cheap and well worth the money. Setting can be a bit fiddly at first until you've had some practice but then you should be able to do it in under 10 minutes. Best watch how someone does it for you the first time if you're uncertain.
