no mate of to alicante with my gf

i have modded cable boxes for years and of course thought great ill do the same in spain BUT been told not a lot of cable tv about so was told if i get a dish and good box i can get all channels? one guy told me in spain people use a box, no card, with a chip and gets all the channels i need, and also his old one worked for years with no issules.

I thought this was bull, as a cable guy i know keys change, roll and in some cases boxes need being hooked up to pc for firmware ect updates

anyhelp would do mate?

You will need a very large motorised dish in Spain. My father in-law lives in Spain, 45 mins from Alicante. North Spain I would imagine is easier than South Spain. But don't hold me to that. Anyway. He has a very large dish just to pick up UK FTA. It's around 2.5m.

You need to do a lot of reading. First you want to learn about dishes and what satellites you can receive in your area, and what kind of channels you are after. Lyngsat will show you certain packages and your satellite map. ie. what size dish will get you which satellite.

Then you need to choose a receiver.

And hardest of all you need to find a like minded bunch of people to share cards with. For this you are going to need something to share. A subscription that is wanted.

I am new to this myself. I have my dish sorted... Almost. Not setup with a motor yet. I have a temporary system in place while I get my head around C/S and try to choose a receiver.

hi mate,

yeah i know u need a 2.4 meter, but was told if you get a good box this helps if using a small dish. 1 guy i have be friended out there, says he gets all channels (like sky/virgin media ) in the uk, movie, sports etc with out moving his dish aimed at 28.2

how can this be possible, as i said been in the game for a while, on 6-9 cable/sat boards and noone has heard of 1 box / without card giving everything with out moving the dish....

card sharing i guess it people sharing codes? to get more channels? what box can i use? does it 100% have to have a net connection?

I can't see the box making a huge difference in helping with a smaller dish. You'll find that you'll get channels missing. From the sounds of it you are just after Sky. Which you can do with a fixed dish, as sky is on 28.2. You need to share a connection, which usually means you share something back. And yes you need an internet connection. There's lots of tutorials on here. To be honest the only way you are going to get what you want is to find a friend willing to share his sky subscription with you. Most people on here are looking to share their subscription in return for several and gaining many channels. Sky is a very small part of this. And it'll probably easier just to subscribe.
