Hi,
I am considering installing Sky in Helsinki, Finland and am wondering what equipment works best.
I've looked at the footprint info for 28 degrees and helsinki appears to be quite marginal for one beam. Can anyone with an established system tell what channels can and cannot be received.

Does anyone have any experience of installation companies in the area and if so what should I expect to have to pay? (I am living in an apartment buidling with no possibility to install the dish except on the roof.)

Any information would be very gratefully received.

cheers,
Jon

hi jon

why dont you go the "alternative" route (non s*y) - the Thor 2/3 beams are right on top of you where you are - all you'd need is the proper cam and receiver - plenty of viewing options especially for footie and movies (mainstream and hardcore) and documentaries and other general stuff - beats getting ripped off by the aforementioned

The grass is always greener on the other side as they say :-)

Not always true.
