Here's the situation...

Played with D T V and B E V in North America for years. For those not familiar, those are the two main providers for North America.

Now lookin to find out if there's ANYTHING I can do for SkyTV. I'm here for 3 more years.
If not.....how does a guy in Germany, get English TV for...let's say, a little cheaper than what SKY is offering.....



Thanks folks....Fudge

Sky is not available, apart from card sharing using boxes like the Dreambox, but you normally need to bring something to the party.

There are loads of channels periodically available with English audio, but you take your chances as to when they are there.

A good read through the sections will enlighten you.;)

Welcome to the forum fudge

There is not a lot available gratis these day but a good read of the forums will bring you up to date, also it all depends on what your definition of English TV is really. There is a lot of American programming on English TV and I am sure the converse applies. Do you have anything specific in mind?
Also you mention cheaper than Sky there are many levels of package prices depending on your likes and dislikes, but for sure you will not find a h a c k
