Receiving Hotbird 1-6 for English language programmes, mainly BBC World and BBC Prime.
#1
I live in the Caucasus area of Southern Russia and wish to receive English language programmes. I already have BBC's World and Prime via the Hotbird series.
The Firstnet Bouquet from ADD, broadcast on the Nilesats at 7 degrees west appears to offer a good choice.
Is anyone able to tell me the size of receiver I would need in my location?
My local equipment provider is not used to dealing with requests for English language programmes but tells me that a 1.2 metre dish would be more than adequate.
I already have a smartcard supplier in Dubai but wish to check the fact that I will be able to receive the broadcasts before investing in what may turn out to be a useless piece of plastic:-)
Any information would be most gratefully received.
Thanks.
