    Look here to see what matches http://www.knplogic.co.uk/sport/british.html

    u will need a digital sat receiver, pointed at astra 19% and Hotbird 13%. Then a viewing card in one of the various formats, SECA, IRDETO, and so on.

    Oh a quite a bit of money.


    good luck

    The accepted wisdom is that showing live Saturday afternoon Premiership matches on TV in the UK will discourage people from actually turning up at the grounds. That's why Europe gets to watch football and we get to watch George Best watching football...

    What really annoys me is that whilst we are watching George Best watching football we don't even get to see clips of the action he is talking about. I know this is beacause ITV have the rights, but they don't show them until 11o'clock at night - I want to see it whilst it is happening!!!:mad:

    The only package that will show every single Prem match this season is Showtime Africa on Nilesat 7W. 12 months subscription is around £500 but you'll need a very big dish costing in excess of £2000 and planning permission to fit it.

    This was the only package showing Wigan V West Ham this weekend for example.

    If your after watching games involving the big clubs then Sky Italia on 13E, Sky Germany on 19.2E or Canal Nordic on 0.8W are good options.

    Wow I didn't see how ancient this thread is first time around! 7 years! you could have just asked the question.

    That system will pick up Sky Italia, but if you're buying a card you dont really need the complication of a motor, just a 60cm dish pointing at Hotbird 13E.

    You wont get any live 3pm games with that you will need a linux box ie a dreambox of a technomate 500 or 600 and you would be able to watch 95% of the 3pm games live with a dish of 60cm in the south of england
