Monica , see earlier posts here dealing with this question. Any standard satellite
box and dish will receive Italian broadcasts from Hotbird at 13E. However, some
primetime programmes on RAI etc will be blocked. To receive all free-to-view programmes you need a tivu box registered to a bona-fide address in Italy with the codice civil. Sky Italia is a separate subscription service.

Gio, you will find set-up data for your receiver in the handbook.
Search online if you do not have a printed copy.

For Italian channel parameters on Hotbird at 13East, check
Hot Bird 13B / Hot Bird 13C / Hot Bird 13D (13?E) - All transmissions - frequencies - KingOfSat

Also see previous posting in this thread.

I would like to get the tivu box for all free Italian channels but Firstly I would like to know why there is a need for the Codice Fiscale and also why I need to provide an Italian address?
I've been in uk 25 years and no longer have an Italian address...
is that a way to bill the resident of the Italian address?
I would much appreciate if you could clarify

Kind Regards

Tivu is intended for residents of Italy. Similar frameworks apply in France, Spain and elsewhere. A tivu or siimilar box is formally tied to residency. However reception within the satellite footporint outside of the target area is possible if the box can be registered as-if living in the target country. Many channels and programmes remain free-to-view anywhere within the satellite footprint. Despite the EU's commitment to free movement of goods and *services*, market forces rule!

The Freesat signals do not cover Ethiopia at all so there is no way to receive the services that way.

Sami, the Hotbird footprint reaches into Egypt. With a very large dish, you just might receive it in Ethiopia. The best way to find out would be to ask the Italian Embassy or Italian nationals. If you have a good broadband internet connection, you might be able to stream some Italian TV.
