Watch All Europe Satellite Tv

I offer two types of system for receiving the main European countries satellite tv channels : 

  1. All Europe ( this page ) 
  2. All Europe and UK ( next page

French main channels are all encrypted so you can choose to include or exclude the French if these are not important to you, the Non-French version uses a different  receiver, but the same dish. 

The “All Europe” package has German, French, Italian and Spanish free to air channels. Russian and Polish free channels can be added.

If  you currently have Sky UK, there are other options, using a single dish see below.

What receiver will I get with the All Europe package?  The reliable and versatile Technisat single tuner receiver with Fransat ( viacess secure ) cam ensures reliable updates – since 2016 many older receivers with embedded viacess firmware fail to update the card properly

3 lnb 100cm coated steel dish from Triax or Technomate,  with Inverto or similar low noise high gain lnbs. 

This combination has been tested by me over many years of installations, it works well up to latitude  52 degrees, ( From South coast up to Birmingham , Coventry, Northampton, Aberystwth with good signal strength).

For areas above Birmingham I would advise a second dish for the French channels.

This combination has been tested by me over many years of installations, it works well up to latitude  52 degrees, ( From South coast up to Birmingham , Coventry, Northampton, Aberystwth with good signal strength).

For areas above Birmingham I would advise a second dish for the French channels.

What works in Wales, North of England and Scotland?

Above latitude  52, I would advise using a TNT French  receiver with a simpler and smaller 80cm dish. This is because the signal from the Astra satellite is fine all over the UK. See the reduced channel list with TNT on the next page

One point though with the TNT boxes, a recent (2021) software update has caused problems with any Free Channel which  shares a transponder with an encrypted one. For example the Italian RAI  1, 2 and 3 FTA (free to air) channels are NOT now available on the TNT box. 

If French  is not an important language for you, use the option above ( All Europe – With non Encrypted French only ) 

OR

If you want ALL the French and ALL the Italian free channels, you can still use the Technisat box, but you will need 2 separate dishes to cover the 3 satellites.

I cannot cover all the possible combinations of channels here, if you have specific requirements please get in touch by email or phone and I will work out a specific system for you.  – For example separate boxes for the Italian and French services is also possible.
