Not all bad news it seems but not far off.
For the opening day of the season while TV Sport Ro is a non starter, there are still some free to air games being shown.
Today (Saturday) there is Spurs v Liverpool on NTV Turkey at 42 east, BBT at 1 west, and Telesport Ro at 4 west.
Best bet is NTV can just pick it up with my 70 cm dish.

On Sunday Everton v Arsenal on Lider TV at 36 east (think it is fta), and on NTV Turkey at 42 east although there is a delayed showing of this 6-15 :)

Seems we have a problem with NTV Turkey. Time now 1-50pm Saturday afternoon and no game on the box.
Can someone translate this message which is on the tv screen;

BBT at 1 deg West ?
I tried tuning that one in but no joy
I would have assumed that as it's FTA I would have no bother
I have a humax 5400 with a 6 in 1 fun card.
Do I need a particaular type of LNB ?
Any advice gratefully appreciated

Thanks for the link
I'm in Newcastle Upon Tyne with a 1 Metre Dish
The footprint seems to come pretty close to where I am.
Would it be reasonable to expect some sort of signal
When I check the signal strength I get a signal level of 33% and a Signal Quality of 0%.

It's not an exact science, but I think that the readings you're getting are about right, i.e. not quite enough... you are really on the fringe.

A 1.0M dish in East Anglia would probably do it, but you may need a 1.2M or even bigger.

I can't get a sniff on a 90cm, and I'm right on the fringe too.

Thanks for that
I'm pushing it with neighbours with a 1m dish so looks like I'm snookered
I might have to try 4 deg W for my Saturday footie
It seems there is a Romanian Channel there what gets the games

Yes, there is very little FTA Prem. footie this year. Not much to watch unless you go the card/CAM route.


At least there's Match of the Day on Saturday and Sunday though!

Next Quest
Channel Telesport TV seems to be free to air on Amos Sat on 4 deg W
Before I mess about with my motorised dish should I be able to get that Sat.

Hmm, again, I think you will be lucky.




You've probably seen all this but if not, have a look at h**p://www.knplogic.co.uk/sport/ to see the channels the footy is on, then check h**p://www.lyngsat.com/ to find the satellite and channel etc, then you can link to the satellite footprints on the right of the channel definitions.

sorry to sound dumb but can i ask what is the card/CAM route?

if you don't ask - you'll never know!
You can get a gadget called a CAM (Conditional Access Module) into which (in most cases) you will need to insert a valid smartcard (viewing card) to decrypt the channels you require. There are many different types of both CAMs and cards.

Just been looking at LJ's for the footy fixtures on TV this Sunday and for the Arsenal v
Middlesbrough game NTV & Lider are both due to show it.
One has it as FTA(Mpeg) the other as FTA(Encrypt), can anybody explain what the (Mpeg) & (Encrypt) stand for seeing as both channels are free-to-air.
Thanks Rob.

Lider are scrambling their sports content - they have been knocking out the Olympics programming on 13E this week.

Mpeg is the digital transmission standard.

I see the Bulgarian station BBT is now also listed as being scrambled. The availability of fta footy for those who want it is really being squeezed.

I think BBT is on the East Beam and needs a biggish dish.

I suspect it means that the football is only available on the east beam transmission of NTV on 42E. :)

NTV is radiated on 2 beams, the S1 which is the transmission we can - just - get in western Europe, and an east beam which points out towards Turkey.....

Could well be right AG, just wish we could find a way of translating that bloody message so we could be sure.
Tried this channel during the week, when no football was on, but it still had the same message in place.
Seems strange that they would shut down the channel, not impossible I know, or maybe it will start up again soon !
