Hi

I have to come back to the Uk and install a dish for a mate of mine in Blackburn and need a few questions answering.


1/ what size dish do we need for Hotbird in the Blackburn area?

2/ can anyone recommend a decent dish supplier in the area or can deliver?


My mate got a quote of 900 pounds to install a dish and supply an ART card! I don't know uk prices but I reckon this is a huge rip off!!! any comments??

Cheers

hi trigger guess a 80cm or 90cm would do if its just for hotbird not sure about the supplier though sounds very expensive if its just a fixed installation guess he might have quoted for a bigger dish and a motorised setup but even then its expensive p.s. whats the weather like in lanzorote and are you sure you want to come back to the uk

As far as I can tell the quote was for a single fixed dish to 13 east, a reciever capable of decoding ART and a 12 month ART card. P.s. The weather is great as is most days- I love it!!!!

I'm not far south of Blackburn and find an 80cm dish is more than adequate for Hotbird, even the weaker transponders. There are lots of mail order outlets, but I've used Pulsat as they usually deliver next-day.

A large chunk of that quote will be for the ART card, a six-month subscription is about £200.

First-sat sell Art 6 month Card for £76 delivered, but are out of stock at the moment. I bought one off a very famous auction site last week for £62.50 delivered next day. Works fine and the six months start from the moment you put the card in the receiver.

As for a a descent sat supplier try TPS at Ashton-Under-Lyne, you should only be looking at £300 for a descent system with a fixed 80cm dish, although they're quite expensive if they fit it.....
