If you get a Showtime subscription you will get lots of extra channels on Nilesat including all the kids ones in English. Basic Showtime subscription starts from about 20 euros a month and goes upto something like 80 euros a month for everything.

dorsetfam what was the 300 euros for? a set top box and a satellite dish?

Just been reading about a system you receive through your broadband connection and you can get most UK channels. All you need is 2MB minimum or ideally 4MB and seems very reasonably priced for the equipment and a subscription of 220 year.
Look at Satellite Steve | TV Aerials, Satellite Installations, Commecial & Domestic, UK or contact Satellite Steve on 99924999.

It would seem these are expensive out here and wondered if anyone out there has any ideas on the best place to get one from. Think we will need the big one.....

Thanks for any advice......

Hello Allen & Sue, We bought our satellite system from Astrosat based in Chlorakas 26 270079 . They were helpful, efficient and we have had no problems in the 5 years that we have had our installation. We initially had our 2 metre dish in the garden, but kept getting problems with spiders making their home in the LNB so Astrosat put the dish on the roof....no problems since. Don't forget do not connect the phone line to your Sky reciever or you may be disconnected !! Yes they are expensive, we paid CYP 800 for ours. Its only possible to get one wire down the small conduits the Cypriots use, they don't appear to understand that many people like more than one telly ? We have a 4 line LNB and had to bring 3 cables in by other means....but it does mean 4 recievers and free to air cards.
Hope that helps and best of luck.
Chris & Linda Tremithousa.

A friend of mine has been installing satellite dishes there for several years.
His name is John Turner. His # is 99094567. He'll be leaving to London tomarrow
(the 8th) for a week. I' sure he could hook you up with the best thing going. Might try touching base with him today
Good luck, de Leuze

just a quick question, if you have a dish and a sat box can you not just receive the free sat channels, read that the 2 systems over here operated by SKY (200 channels) and the FREESAT service run by the BBC and ITV (140+ channels) can be received in Cyprus?

I live in Tala, Paphos and have Sky with a 2.5 m dish and a HD+ box. My package includes all the movies plus HD but often the picture quality is poor and breaks up. I have had the dish tuned (realigned) a few times now but its not much better. From my experience I would recommend a dish size of at least 3m if you want good reception on all channels and in all weather.

Do you still subscribe to sky or are you just using the bos to receive?
