I know that some satalites broadcast US TV channels.

Which ones can you get, and on which satalites?

I dont suppose there is any chance of Picking up West Coast Local
news stations ie. L.A. area?

Is a list of free ones and the satellites they are transmitted on, majority of the encrypted ones are in powervue which is a professionally secure encryption.

No chance - all the birds serving the US west coast are either well below the horizon in Europe, or firing beams that cannot be receiver here.

Perhaps I should have pointed out that the list I inserted has mostly unreachable satellites from Europe however all the channels shown as being on Hotbird 6 are receivable here in Europe Free To Air but they may not be the one's you want. :-bunny

Exactly who knows what his preferences are..... I am certainly not going to make any assumptions. US programming could mean just that US

Hi, just found your site. I am thinking about getting a satellite dish installed. But i am wondering as i watch a lot of American TV shows, Is it possible to get channels such as Fox/NBC here in the UK.

Sorry if this is a stupid question

Not directly no. Some variations of Fox are available on foreign pay tv services. The main American broadcast channels are NOT available, (due to the curvature of the Earth) and never will be, unless they suddenly decide they want a European audience.

Thank You for the answer so quickly. That is a shame as i wanted to watch them as they aired in the USA. Guess i have to wait 6 months before they are shown here

But they are Fox Portugal. Are they in English with subtitles, dubbed or do they have an english subcarrier?

Please note its not Fox USA, so you arent going to get the same programming as the US does, - its a version (like FX 270 in the UK isnt FOX either, just a device to get some of their programming into a specific market.)
