Hello all ,can you help. I am moving over to the Philippines this year with my family.
Could anyone advise if I could receive UK tv and If so the system I will require .
would It be wise for me to take a decent receiver/lnb with me from UK ? .I will try and have a bash at setting this up myself so anything on this subject would be appreciated. many thanks

Regards

Leave the satellite kit here in the UK. Its of absolutely no use you you whatsoever as there in no chance at all of receiving uk tv out there.

I suggest you learn Tagalog quickly!!

If you have a friend in the UK with a good broadband connection and a broadband connection in the Philippines, then you can use a Slingbox to watch all of the UK freeview channels out there on your computer.
