Ok..heres the deal..thinking about getting into the "satalight" scene, my main reasons are im sick of not being able to watch the footie live on a sat.. i cant get a season ticket as they are all sold out..

I am totally new to this.. is there some kind of newbie guide?

What sort of things would i be able to pick up??

Can you also recommend the stuff to buy and how much it will all cost..

@Londonpaul....welcome to the site.

Take a look through some of the forums...especially multisat systems. It's usually the case that once you get into this hobby, you nearly always want to push the boundaries. So buying for the future is a good idea. If I were buying a receiver today I would probably go for a Technomate. I'd get a motorised dish, probably 1 metre for Essex and a Matrix Reloaded Cam. You can get premiership football that way and lots of other stuff besides. Depends on your interests. It's down to personal choice really but, as I say, take a few moments to read up from the site.

Yep welcome Londonpaul...Like you I live in the Essex area too, providing you have a good south facing wall with no obstructions you should be O'K....I love me footy especially Chelsea and I would go as far to say that I have seen more games FTA (Free To Air) on my system than sky sports has televised. If you dont mind the commentry being in Arabic or Romanian etc then you will be O'K (you can still hear the crowds coating the ref though, thats in English :D) Take a peak at this site, I like others on here always post it (It's like a footy bible!) http://www.knplogic.co.uk/sport/ and look up the listings that have FTA, that will give you some idea what you can view legally!
