Can I pick up Freeview from Germany?
published on UK Free TV

As with analogue TV, the signals do not normally travel far enough for them to travel this far.

You can, however, watch many of these channels from the Astra 2D satellite from Germany, see:

We have full free view TV channels here in Bavaria, Germany and would like a new reciever box which would enable us to watch one channel whilst recording another. This may sound like a stupid question but I bought a recorder with Hard Disc drive and disc recorder where you can burn from one side to the other. Unfortunately we've not been able to record onto it without having the TV programme on! We need an easy to use box but one where you van delete ads etc would be great and one where you don't have to watch what you're recording would be even better!!!
Any tips would be welcome. We have 2 receivers in 2 different rooms and can watch 100's of english channels which we love!

Stephanie Halser: Sorry, I am confused. You can't watch Freeview in Germany. Do you mean Freesat?

kimberley: Afraid not!,they use a different transmitting system to us,so it wouldn't work without having the set converted.

Dave: If you use a larger dish with your box you should be able to get all of the BBC, ITV and other services from the Astra 1N satellite.

In readiness for the German analogue switch off I have connected my old dish with universal lnb pointing to Astra 1H to a sky box. I have put Eurosport German service in additional channels Ok but when I try to add Sport 1 I get no signal when inputting 12480V 27.5 3/4
Is this channel that often has British football and boxing not available in the UK in digital format?
