I think the dish has to be at least 1.5m in your location https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=204957311454637204711.0004d126e21814cdbf26b&msa=0 theres also the options of watching through the bbc/itv/channel4 websites which have live streams using a proxy of course or using iptv

^^^^ That link is to coverage from 2F.

2E is now operating and that has affected reception of Channels previously on 1N, like most BBC.

ITV is going to move onto 2E this coming Tuesday.

So what might have been applicable previously doesn't necessarily hold any more.

I suggest you keep an eye on the following Topics for a few days in order to get a better idea of what you might be expected to receive and on what size dish

In Sweden You can get Internet very easy, try any supplier for a 4G wifi
I have it and it is working very good, high speed and rather cheap.
Get a toroid 90 and You can have all the sats in the sky(well...)

Not BBC ITV from Astra 2E and will also be a problem on 2F
