Movistar (Canal plus) Spanish tv installed in the UK

The Movistar subscription service is only available in Spain, however the official package is possible here, with certain restrictions.

There are 2 ways to achieve this,

  1. with a prepaid 18month card and suitable receiver
  2. with a monthly subscription official Canal+ receiver (must have Spanish bank account )

The prepaid card is  fine, technically and is available in 4 different packages ( sport , movies, family etc. ) but is very expensive.
