I want to know what dish size could be enough to get Intelsat 20 at 68.5°E Landmass coverage signal in Gothenburg? Have any one tried on Intelsat 20 at 68.5’E in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Poland? Please give me some info about the possibilities ?

Unless you have a subscription you have no chance whatsoever of watching those.

No one can say for certain if you will get a good signal - signal strength variations can happen over quite small distances due to minute imperfections in the transmission dish on the spacecraft. Its all educated guesswork. All you can do is buy a dish of an appropriate size and hope for the best.

Do you mind digging a VERY deep hole in your garden and filling it with concrete to make a sturdy base pad for it?

I dont know the exact figures for very big dishes - one of the big dish experts should be able to give you a better idea of the amount of concrete you are going to need. Its going to be a major excavation though, expecially if the dish is a solid one. Id hazard a guess its going to be getting on for a metre cubed though. Once you have decided on the dish you need to consult some big dish experts as to the anchoring you need for it.

Instead of spending thousands of Eu on satellite gear have you considered it would be easier all round and far far cheaper to just buy one of the IPTV boxes that are stuffed full of stations from a particular area??
