Angus Cameron: The satellites that broadcast Sky/Freesat channels to the UK have plenty of overspill into Belgium so it should be possible to receive most UK channels there although you may need a bigger satellite dish to ensure you are receiving sufficient signal to avoid breakup in bad weather. I gather that some UK channels are also carried by cable TV operators in some parts of Europe so that may be worth investigating too.

Aim your comments to the broadcaster and not this technical help website.

Would love to receive "Keep it Country" on Freesat 389 or Freeview 516.

How can I receive this on a Sharp Aquos TV in the North Wales area?

Mrs S Golden: Please provide a full postcode so we can see which transmitters are available at your location, as North Wales covers a huge area with many different transmitters covering different parts of it.

You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate - great song, but released in 1975 and again in 1997. So not, er, 80s...?

John:

This is not the website for the broadcasyer. You would do best to aim your comments to them rather than this site which is primarily aimed at assisting with reception problems.

Now 80s has just disappeared from my Freesat box. Channel 513 no longer there. What's happened to it?
