When I lived in Cascais it was possible to receive all these services, but it took a 1.2m dish, because these services are on the Astra 2D satellite that points at the UK.


You can either use a second-hand (or indeed new) Sky box to get these services using the familiar channel numbers and interactive services.

If you don't want to use a Sky box, but a generic one, you can find the frequencies to tune to at:

MIA: There's no UK Freeview available in Portugal.
UK Freesat is available even in extreme SW Portugal with a big dish, 1.5m minimum, 1.8 or larger if possible.

I have a new sky package living in Southern Ireland, Cork. I can only receive BBC Northern Ireland. Can I get BBC London (or anywhere else in fact) and how do I do it?. I have tried the 960-970 chanells that allow you to do it in England but are not available in 'Sky Ireland'

I live in North Portugal just south of Viana do Castelo I have an offset dish 1.4 M
with a quad lnb (4 outputs) I use three of them and get very good reception except in heavy rain. I have two humax hd rxs and a sky box . I hope the signal
stays strong enough (no more changes to the radiation (beam) patterns).
Hope this helps.
