Sky in Europe?


Chris J

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

I understand that it is possible to receive the Sky channels over most of Western Europe but is the Astra satellite to be found at 28.2 degrees everywhere or does it change depending on location?

Also is finding Astra abroad just a matter of trial and error or is there an easier way?

Any help would be appreciated.

As I understand it the satellites are at 28.2 degrees EAST of SOUTH, so the dish aligned differently wherever you are in Europe. Once you determine where south is you can then modify the alignment to 28.2 and the use a sat meter to fine tune the dish. Never tried it myself but plenty of people have saved themselve money by doing it themselves, be aware you will probably need a bigger dish in Europe and the further east you travel the more likely you are to only recieve some of the channels.
