Dubai - UK satellite TV reception?

Postby Martin Pickering » Sun 11 Jan 2004 09:44

Anybody in Dubai and, more to the point, anybody managed to get BBC or ITV reception from Astra 2D satellite?

Hi Martin

I'm moving this post to the UAE board as I think you'll have more chance of a response from there.

I can't speak for anybody else but all we get is BBC Prime,UKTV and Sky News on local cable (evision). They are not bad, but obviously not the 'real thing'. On BBC Prime most things are fairly up to date, Eastenders is only two days behind what is shown in the UK so not too bad.
As we live in a high rise apartment it is very difficult to have our own dish, but I am sure if somebody had a villa it may be possible to have a dish that could pick up the satellite, though it may have to be quite a size!
Hope that helps a bit.
