Hi,
I went to a satellite installer to buy and setup a satellite dish. I want to receive channels from both France and Norway, but he could not tell me which satellite to point to. Would anyone know whether it is possible with one single satellite dish, and what satellite(s) to point to?
Thanks

Hi,
Have a look on flysat and lyngsat.com
There are loads of French channels on Hotbird 13E under TPS package. Also CanalSat France on Astra1 19.2E.
Can't see any Norwegian channels on either of those sats, looks like theres some on Thor2/3 and Sirius2/3 though.

If there's no sat with both on, you could always setup a motorised dish.

15W is also a good spot for french channels, mostly FTA. TPS channels are encrypted - the encryption is broken but you need the correct (soft)cam to get passed the encryption, until TPS changes it's encryption methods and everything is turned black again.
and any Norwegian channel's encryption is secure : you'll need an official subscription (and receiver) to decrypt these channels !

Thanks for the information. Bad luck for the Norwegian channels apparently.

update - the French channels are at 5W, not 15W.
