Hispasat

I like it because the providers D+ and Cabo got really good channels and above average quality when compared to other providers by satellite.

Also the movies are newer, however some of the channels broadcast with too low bitrates which affects overall picture.

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. :D

It was hisp for me until a few weeks ago when they started changing to nagr2.
We should start a "Desert island dish" thread. :D 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.;)

30W, 13E when there's a decent film in English, TV Gusto on 19.2E (at 9pm when it's in English) and 28E for BBC, Travel and ITV (I get poor terrestrial reception).

That's when the DB thinks it's OK to move the dish ;)

5W. 3 Reasons:

>> French National TV (always good when UK national TV fails)
>> Ananlogue (Works whatever the weather - or at least you can see somehting!)
>> FTA, no cams 'ere mate.

Astra 1A - the pioneer that really introduced Europe to the idea of multi channel tv.

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.

Certanly Hispasat has a lot going for it, more when D+ was available though. :)

I have to say that I liked 13E when Sky Italia was available. :)
