Hello all........ I'm hoping somebody here can help me.

I am desperate to tune into Sport+ channel from France this Saturday which operates from the Astra 1G satellite.

I don't have any special equipment.... just the usual UK Sky digital dish and box.

Can anybody PLEASE tell me if this is at all possible to do just by repointing my dish.... or any other way in which I can do this.

Thanks for looking.

You can 1) repoint dish and 2) enter channel details into "add channels" on a Sky digibox (details from www.satcodx.com). However, that gets free to air broadcasts only, anything encrypted won't show on a digibox.

Dont bother - Sport + is encrypted, and a digibox will only give you a blank screen.

You could certainly get quite a bit of free to air sport, especially German channels, from Astra1 (and a few on Hotbird, depending). But, presumably, none will show the particular event you want to see!
