Hi Guys:-newb
I’m new to the forum but have been reading post for about a week and there are some very helpful posters on this website and it seems like a very good forum so I thought I would get involved.

I am moving to Egypt (Nasr City) with work and I was wondering if anyone knew what types of satellite/cable might be avaliable to me.
I am British and enjoy British sport particularly boxing and football. Are there any packages available that I would enable me to be able to keep up and continue to follow the British sport? (other than watching on the internet) I have been told I would need a 5meter dish to watch Sky Sports and that it may not be possible, is this true? What international channels are available in Egypt?
Any info would be a great help
Thanks

Any cable discussion whatsoever about services in any country is forbidden here, so all replies will have to only answer about the sat services.

Satellite TV is very popular in Egypt; you will readily get Nilesat with a fair amount of free English programming on a small dish. Hotbird is also popular in Egypt especially for expats --- will probably require a larger dish e.g. 1.8. In Cairo, I know someone who can pull in the BBC streams on a huge (at least 2.4) dish.

Subscription to ART locally should be pretty 'cheap' from an expatriate's point of view, though it is mostly in Arabic. I think Showtime (probably the better package) is relatively cheap too though I have never subscribed to that one.

I would've thought that Showtime is the package to buy, particularly if you like Football, pretty much every Premiership game is on there, plus a good selection of other sports.
