Yes we have Uk TV.Can you tell me if there is UK tv in Cyprus is it SKY ?
What is the cost ?
Thanks so much Veronica thats a load off my mind and another tick in a box lolYes we have Uk TV.
You can have freeview channels which costs nothing once you have the box and sky card or you can pay to have the whole sky package. I dont know how much that is as we just have freeview. We get all the ITV and BBC channels and quite a few others.
You can get cards from any of the people who supply the satelite dishes, which is where we got our original card. If you want the full package they can also see to that for you at a cost.How are you doing this Veronica? Are you using a UK address as the registration address for the card or did your TV aerial place 'supply' a card?
My husband says that officially Sky is only available in the UK.
Thats really good for free to viewYou can get cards from any of the people who supply the satelite dishes, which is where we got our original card. If you want the full package they can also see to that for you at a cost.
We are not bothered about the full package but our card gets us all of the freeviews channels.

Probably, not sureIs it the same showtime as in Dubai as that is continual repeats and hardly any new programmes
Sounds ok to meProbably, not sure
We loved it, and found it a lot better than sky. Always something on to watch. Hubby got to see every premiership game. Films released sooner than on sky, all the top dramas from usa. LOST, Desperate housewives etc etc. great programmes for the kids.
Each to there own of course, but I would recommend it.
The size of dish depends on where you are in Cyprus. We have a 2.7 metre dish but in some place you need a 4m dish.People with the freeview boxes what size dish are you using, I have a sky package in England but a freeview would be fine for me for my apartment (still adding to it ready for the time when I make the full move over).
In England freeview is not the same as you discribe you don't need a card just a box. I have heard that sat tv is expensive in Cyprus when it comes to equipment ie boxes and dishes and I am also a little confused as to what dish will give me what.
Yes his sky box will work over here and his existing card should get all the fee view programmes. So you will only need to get a dish.Veronica sorry to be a pain ............should I get my dad to take his UK Sky box over will that work and would it be cheaper ?
I know you probably think I think you re the oracle lol !!!! But I do do the same on the Dubai forum for people relocating to Dubai lol
