tony hurst: Murcia.-
Dish size, location are very important. Lots of parameters have changed recently. there is a new Satellite (Astra 1-N) which makes UK TV stronger than it has been for a long time, that is until December when it will be replaced with a new 'bird' pointing at the UK. Unknown results until it's launched 4th Quarter 2012. "Sky" branded equipment is NOT needed to view UK TV. However IF you NEED to see movies / sport then that's different. King Rupert bought the lot. SO, here in Murcia. your Panasonic TV will work with Freesat. You will see what you saw in the UK. /depending on the size of dish you have access to!). We live in Murcia, have five dishes, more than six receivers, and a Panasonic TV.....

Brenda Singfield: assuming your dish gets all available UK channels..... (ie it's big enough and pointing in the right direction) then a twin LNB (the thing on the end of the arm) at least is needed.A Quad LNB is better.... then two cables feed the room where the 'box' is. Then a Humax Foxsat HDR PVR would do what you want. No subscription to SKY. Beware December 2012 when a new satellite is launched. Nobody knows what will be receivable after that date.
