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 )
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 **)
Aragon, Adalucia, tv Madrid and tv Catalunya are all in the latest frequency changes from the spanish broadcasters. ( they just cant make up their minds)
Andalucia is now renamed in your sat list as canal sur, but the on screen logo is still the familiar Sun – Adalucia
moved from 11686 to 11597V
All changes are shown on the web page on the main site
Good news for satellite enthusiasts, wanting spanish Digital plus services….
Since the last generation of cards, the fact that the Digital plus card was matched with the receiving equipment, so like Sky Uk it has meant that you cannot use the card in a different receiver.
You can now buy a matching D+ card and CAM , to fit into your existing (providing its a CI type ) receiver. So when you elect to go for D+ you dont have to put up with an inferior box without all the fancy features you paid for when buying your top notch multisatellite receiver.

My thanks to Rosario for raising this, I am looking into HD receivers for most of the European countries, as yet there really arent enough channels on HD ( much like our own FreeSat ) to make it good value for money.
The picture quality is great and the improvement over SD (standard definition) especially on a very large LCD or Plasma tv is outstanding.
At the moment there are no free channels in HD from Spain, only the Digital+ & Canal + spain, ones which are encrypted in various formats – NagraVision 3 and videoguard – and which require a dedicated receiver ( again like our Uk sky) where the viewing card is matched with the receiver by the broadcaster.
Some cards may be available with set top boxes but usually at extortionate rates in this country. To go through official channels to obtain one you must have a spanish address.
