published on UK Free TV

The "Freeview" service is broadcast in the UK using a network of terrestrial transmitters. There is a similar service in Spain.

To watch a service of UK TV programmes you can use the Freesat (or fSfS) option: you will need a large dish in Spain to pick up all of the transmissions from the Astra 2 satellites.

Is there anyway 2 sky boxes can be used in the same room, with a twin LNB. So that I can receive
two different channels with two remote controls.

Anthony Hayhurst: yes it can be done but one problem is the sky remote will end up controlling 2 boxes at the same time... unless you have one sky plus box and a standard sky box... that will work well but if you have 2 sky plus or 2 standard boxes it be controlled by one remote meaning both boxes change channels same time....

hope this helps

I'm living in Wuerzburg Germany. I have 2 satellite dishes 1 Europe and the 1 directed at England. I've had the dishes about 6 years at the beginning I was getting most of the Freesat stations but last year I lost most of the stations. At the moment the only tv I'm receiving is BBC and ITV 1, Channel 4 and More 4. I cannot get BBC World and CNN, they have disappeared like the rest. Now during the summer evenings I lose Channel 4 and More 4, it just pixels and the picture is gone. This only happened previously when it snowed heavily or during a bad thunderstorm. My satellite dishes are 60cm and my receiver is a Kathrein. Anybody got any suggestion?

Peter Day: Freeview is broadcast from ground-based transmitters, not via satellite and certainly can't be received as far away as Spain. You may be able to get some UK channels via satellite with a large enough dish. Best thing would be to talk to a local satellite installer, who should know what is possible in that area.
