Hi all, I'm trying to learn Swedish. I'm really curious which Swede channels we manage to receive in the UK?

I'm in Aberdeen, almost on the coast. 90cm Dish and dreambox 7020 will be here in a few days! and I cant wait :-thumbup had to ask.

Particularly interested in Thor, and Sirius.... but dont know much about them apart from Sirius 2 looks easy to get.... according to their website I need a 70cm dish? NO problem!.....but is it true in reality? I'd be willing to pay to get Swedish chans, or use the dreambox to unscramble/decode etc.

Thanks and I hope you all have a Happy Christmas btw.

You'll get pretty much all of the FTA stuff with a 90cm from Aberdeen.

That's what I've just said, you will pick up pretty much all of Thor and Sirius that is FTA (free to air), you are much better positioned for the Scandinavian channels than us down South and I can pick up most of it with an 80cm dish.

Thank you very much, it's always nice when theres a plus to where you live. I bet theres some negatives too, but at least I'll get what I'm after at the moment. Sorry for the late reply btw, I fell asleep. (Christmas "spirit") :-carrot
