I have managed to get hold of another 2.4 channel master dish.
I already have 1 fixed on 28.2 e.
With me having a sports bar what would be the best positioning of it to
receive say fta footie or buying more cards.
Where would you point it for now or future?
Any ideas.
Oh only bothered in epl, cups etc.
Cheers.

either astra1, hotbird, hispasat or for free to air footy FOX turk on turksat, really try and shell out for a motor to power that thing cos you will need more than 1 satellite, either that or use multiple fixed dishes but it will look suspicious if you do that

no, havent you been watching the news? people dont like us brits watching foreign channels to get the footy and especially pubs and bars in which its starting to get clamped down on, and people arnt going to pay £5000/year for sky in a pub but if its easilly noticeable then word get around and i think you can gather the rest yourself.

The pub near me has an 80cm i think it is out the back powered by a motor and everytime the footy is on they close the curtains just incase any strange bobby looks in lol.

but to your problem, you certainly wouldnt get anything from 28.8 not unless you have a sky subscription, you can get hold of premier on 19.2 which i hear has english commentry during the season and also canal+ on that satellite. Hotbird has a few which you can get like supersports, canal+ etc. but you will need a subscription for these not unless you know how to get these some other way.

Hispasat has a few such as sporttv1 & 2 and a few others which are well worth looking out for but you will need a card or as i say unless you know how to get these channels some other way.

If you want FTA go for fox turk on turksat which you can get with an 80cm here in the uk but unfortunetly i cannot for some strange reason.

And finally you see what i mean about it best you having a motor? not only does it looks alot better its also cheaper than buying loads of fixed dishes but the choice is yours my friend, if you dont mind paying for a subscription get a supersports one or something or if the dish is over 2m theres a few on nilesat which are suppost to be good.

EDIT

sorry i didnt realise you not from the uk, you should be fine then, maybe not as tight as over here, over here if you have a dish above a 1m you need planning permission but in like where you are they probably wouldnt care less lol.

You will find it hard to get a polar mount for your 2.4 C/m dish, as there no longer made.

You could get one made like i did for my 1.8m C/m.

There are other motors but there pricey.

probably your best bet is getting showtime card as they are showing every game live and you are in the 7west footprint
