Thanks for reply. One more question: Leaving aside bbc channels, from June onwards, what dish size would I need should I want to get only ch4 and 5 in the rome area? also will I need still a sky digibox and a card or they will be 'free to air'? thanks/Grazie mille

The channel 4 and 5 situation is not due to change in the imminent future, so yes, you will need a Sky Digibox.

Now that's an interesting question and I must say I've never thought about it before. Why do we even now simply have a chioice of ordeing cards from BBC or from Sky? Why do we talk about "BBC" cards and not "channel4" or "channel5" cards? Is the Beeb taking care of channel4/etc out of the goodness of their hearts? What happens when/if Beeb no longer encrypts? Presumably they'll have no reason to issue cards - so who will?

the number that is listed on the screen is the one we are all using at the moment and is paid for by the bbc ,I dont think they are going to carry on paying for this once you dont need the card
do you??
now then doctor I think you should go down to the rovers return in torrablanca and have a swift half
