My supplier for the Spanish Digital Plus service, can supply the viewing cards to receive this service , with all the popular Spanish mainland channels TVE1 TVE2, Antena3, Cuatro, Telecinco, La Sexta……..
The card is purchased with CAM, enabling it to be used in my satellite receivers and initially the card is valid for 18 months. At 1089 Euro it represents quite good value. Compared with the Sky Uk package @ £52/month plus receiver @ £50 which is £629/year, Digital Plus Card works out at 726 Euro ( £629/year )
Although the satellite Hispasat carries channels for South America most are inaccessible to us in Europe, due to the direction of the ‘Americas’ beam used. This channel ‘Tv Chile’ is beamed from another satellite at Norway!!
The channel is receivable here in the Uk and can be combined with the other Spanish channels from Astra on a single dish
Having met some amazing couples on my travels installing satellites, I am aware that not everyone wants just Spanish channels. I have been asked for Greek and Spainish, French and Spanish, German and Spanish, Dutch and Spanish….. and the list grows every day.
If you would like a quote for satellite tv from 2 countries, I am always happy to come up with new solutions.
Dont forget too, that Uk channels can be combined with Spanish on a single dish, you dont have to have 2 dishes ( ** except Hispasat , if you want Valencia tv **)
