Hi

I currently have Sky HD in which along with the subscribed Sky Sports channels I get to watch all the UK football. In addition to this I spend lots of time watching games from around the world via live streaming. Can anyone recommend any sat boxes/packages to allow me to do this instead of live streaming?

Such as Fox TV would be great.

The Yank version of Fox Sports is not available anywhere in Europe.

However there are assorted regional versions - eg Fox Sports Middle East available

Ignore the ones listed as PowerVu - those are not available to residential customers.


Apart from that it really depends what you want - I sometimes watch African or Middle Eastern games which are transmitted in the clear.

Ok thanks. Perhaps I need to go a step or two back. I am a complete novice to all this and have only ever had normal sky tv. I am after a setup where I can have the sky but also all sports from around the world from such as Fox Tv. Also middle east games and african games would be great. May I ask what do I need to do all this?

26.0E is good for football, if you can pick it up, i am not sure in the Leicestershire area/if you have a clear view for this sat, but your not that far from me,

i am getting these free channels of this sat with an old technomate 1500 and a 1mtr dish :-).

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

If you are moving house, when you first settle in, go see the neighbours with a large bottle or two of what they enjoy,

Then have a good look around your garden for a site that will allow you to fit a 1.8m dish without it being too much of an eyesore.

Then ply the neighbours once again and tell them it's for educational purposes before going ahead with the installation..

i would check your line of sight before a large bottle/2, if its a no go then go for the large bottle/10 and tell them your going to mount your 1.8 dish on the chimney lmao.
