No chance whatsoever for any of the 28E channels in Mauritius. :D

Forget it.

If you are living in Mauritius and have broadband, then the only way to receive the UK channels is using something like Slingbox hosting, there are several companies now set up so that you can have your own dedicated Slingbox, with full control over the UK Freeview channels.

Well you just have to look at your world atlas, Mauritius is east of Madagascar. I don't think the largest dish ever made would get a signal from 2D that far out.

Lanzarote is north of the Equator for starters - and an awful lot closer to the UK than Mauritius

I don't have a link I'm afraid, but if you google for "slingbox freeview hosting" "Slingbox community" or similar strings to reflect your requirements, then you will come up with some more information. :)
