With non-English-speaking relatives visiting UK, I would like to access the main French terrestrial channels. These are currently available FTA on A Bird 3 (5 degrees W) but I am concerned that, with the current move towards digital, these channels will be withdrawn before long. I don't want to buy equipment that could be useless by next year! Does anybody know how long these channels are likely to be available??

Please try to post in an appropriate section! Ive moved it into the analogue area.

No definite dates yet, although mid - end 2007 has been indicated as a possible shutdown timesale for the service..

Most of the main services are fta digital on the same satellite (not TF1 or M6 at the moment.)

Aren't the digital channels going to be encrypted in the future though?
