Hello,

I've just got to know this about satellites, and I find it very interesting. I have no experience whatsoever from this, so I have some questions.
I know that most of you are from the UK so I understand if you can't answer my questions, but I've seen someone from Sweden that maybe can help me.

1. I'm most interested in football games of all kinds. I live in the very north Sweden (Skellefteå), can I even get channels around the world that show football? Here's a good site. _http://liveonsat.com/

2. If that is possible for me, what kind of things should I buy? I need everything from the beginning, dish, receiver, everything that is needed.

3. Are Free To Air channels with football (preferably English) hard to get? In that case, what cheap subscriptions can I buy, or is there another solution?

Thank you in advance for taking your time and answering my questions, and please excuse my English. I didn't know where to put this topic, mod can remove it if it's in wrong section.

Okay, thanks for your answers.

Is Canal Digital the cheapest way of getting Premiership? I've heard of Art Sport, but apparently they've lost their rights next year?

I don't really know what you mean with that, but where can I buy those dishes?
