Help! Can I receive Bulgarian TV in the UK?

Hi,



I am totally new to all of this, but really would appreciate any help or advice in receiving Bulgarian TV in the UK.



I currently have just a Sky dish and box, but am willing to purchase new equipment if necessary (where's best to buy?).



I know there is an operator called Bulsatcom who uses the Hellas 2 satellite for transmission, but can I receive these channels even if they are encrypted and if so how do I unscramble the signals?



Any help would be truly appreciated.


Many thanks in advance,

Burgasleer :confused

There is quite a bit of free to air Bulgarian TV available, see http://www.lyngsat.com/freetv/Bulgaria.html , from the look of it, a motorised 90cm would get you most of them.

With regard to the ones on Hellas2, you will need a receiver with an Irdeto CAM and a card from the providers, if you know someone or have family in Bulgaria, they could get you one.

Hi

Thanks for the help to date.

If a channel is encoded with 'cryptoworks' how do I proceed?

Sorry to sound so dumb, but this really is brand new to me.

Thanks in advance.

If it is Cryptoworks, you will need a Cryptoworks CAM and subscription card from Bulgaria, something like a Matrix Revolutions cam may operate with the subscription card also.
