Yes, a dish would be helpful sylvester24, you need to decide what you want to watch first, then we can advise which satellite would be best to point at. :)

I believe that there are a couple of indian channels on Sky, but you will need a digibox and will need to subscribe.

A 55cm would be just about OK, but bigger would be better, might be worth clicking on the Skystar advert at the top of the page, as Sateuropa their UK distributors do some nice dish kits
