    I want to view Sky in Bulgaria. I know that I need an unsubsidised box and a valid UK subsription. Does anybody know a reliabale company to provide both box and card? Is the sky+2 available unsubsidised (no phone line required) yet? :lease: :lease: :lease:

    Note that you will not be able to view all the channels in Bulgaria unless you have a big dish, because some of the channels are on satellite transponders that have a "tight footprint" over the UK. This was done to prevent 1000's of "ex-pats" living in the Canary Islands from watching BBC channels free (i.e. without a UK licence).

    I think astra 2d is the problematic one. Will check what channels run on it. What about the Sky+ 2, is it available unsubsidised now that there is no extra charge for the + service?

    Sapkan,

    I bought a SKY+ V2 from brymar satellite unsubsidised - all works fine.. I had to ring SKY and ask for a second hand SKY+ subscription, took some persuading but was no problem in the end; you do need a UK address for this though.

    Good luck!
