BBC, ITV, C4, Five channels available with no subscription on smaller satellite dishes in Spain from today

Recent changes (as posted here) made by the UK TV broadcasters and Astra (the satellite operator), mean that you can now receive

BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, BBC4, Cbeebie, CBBC, BBC News, BBC1 HD, BBC HD, ITV1, ITV1HD, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, Channel 4, Channel 4 HD, More 4, E4, Film 4, Five, Five USA and Five

for free, with no subscription, on a smaller satellite dish than previously required in Spain, the Costa Blanca, and the Communidad Valencia.

In some areas in Communidad Valencia an 80cm satellite dish is big enough to receive these channels.
In other areas a larger 1m satellite dish is required.

It may be that your current satellite dish is big enough to receive these channels for free, but it may need realignment or a better quality LNB.

The availability of these channels on smaller satellite dishes is temporary, possibly only to the end of this year, when a new satellite is launched, which may change reception.

We can perform dish realignments from 30euros, supply stronger LNBs (LNBs from 15 Euros), or install a 1m dish for 125 Euros.

BBC TV Channel changes - better reception of BBC TV in Spain likely

Origianlly posted at:

The BBC channels, BBC1, BB2, BBC3, BBC4, BBC1HD, BBCHD, CBBC, CBeebies, will be moving from Astra 2D to Astra 1N this coming Friday.

There will be no change of frequencies.

The BBC channels will be using the same frequencies as they currently do.

However, this will mean that reception of these BBC channels in Spain will be much better than currently.

In some areas, they should be able to be received on a small 80cm or 1m satellte dish, where are previously they may not have been available even on a 2.4m satellite dish.

If you are unable to receive these channels, then no reception of these channels may require dish realignment, a new LNB or a larger satellite dish - such as a 1m satellite dish.

This follows the recent move of the ITV and channel 4 group of channels to Astra 1N in the last few weeks.
