Yes Hispasat is by far my fave. Cabo is great, it has some great programmes, for instance on Channel 4 they are showing Lost at the moment, around episode 12, on Fox they have shown all 24 episodes (Perdidos) and are now doing reruns, so I have got to see the lot before it aired in the UK. Rescue me (NY Firefighters) is an excellent show and yet again it isn't in the UK.
My Dad has the full Sky package £42 a month and to tell you the truth I wouldn't thank you for it, if it were free. My motor is constantly on Hispasat and it is going to stay there. I set up the same system for my sister and she is a total convert. Now I have to ween my Dad off Sky, although I can't see that happening, he loves his Family fortunes and football.
It was hisp for me until a few weeks ago when they started changing to nagr2. We should start a "Desert island dish" thread. My fixed dish would be on hotbird a good mixture of films, footy and those other films we don't admit to watching wink-wink.;)
Nilesat at 7*west, I can always find a film with english dialogue when I can be bothered to turn on the TV. In addition some very good programmes showing detailed operations, and there is a channel showing cartoons in english.
