Only Sky Premium has become free, but may not
stay so for long. Occasionally channels are temporarily switched to free for technical reasons or to win new subscribers. You need a Tivu box to receive all the channels which are free to viewers with a codice fiscale. See previous posts.

Andrea, I have the same box and watch the same channels. If some are fine, they should all be fine. Press "info" on the remote and check whether the good channels are all (H) or all (V) on the left next to the fequency. If this is the case, you have a polarisation issue, either in the LNB in front of the dish or in the receiver. If you get good signals both H and V polarised, the dish just might have been blown off alignment, so you only get the stronger signals.That might apply at your latitude. Hoffentlich hilft das! If you need further help, we would need more specific information on which channels you get, don't get, diameter of dish, length of cable from receiver to dish etc. If the fault is not a basic one, you may need to consult a reputed local expert.

Any satellite receiver with recording facility will record FTA channels. Check online reviews. The Humax with HDD comes up as reliable, but there are others. The Technomate with USB recording facility is an example of a reliable budget option. High Definition from Germany is a different ball-game. There is little FTA. Subscription HD channels are available, but at a cost premium - beyond my Taschengeld...

Is there any way to block these infuriating "transmitter engineering" postings? They convey zero information and maxi annoyance. Overall the "improved" format of ukfreetv postings delivers far less useful information than the former format. Very sad as ukfreetv used to be one of the most useful of its genre.
