Hi.

A friend is moving to Dubai and is about toi cancel her Sky subscription and i said WAIT!! i will find out if you can get it there.

So question is i know it is not on the fringe maps but has anyone heard of anyone getting 28.2e in Dubai?

If so what are the requirements.

Thanks

It wouldn't be an option. Consider the slingbox route.

In addition, there's English programming on 26°e and 7°w though. Bang in the middle of footprint coverage.

One thing to add, if she still has the Blue card (with a yellow house) it is advisable to wait to receive the white replacement card before cancelling the Sly subscription.
