Hello Folks,

There has been a lot of nonsense spoken of the impending doom of the BBC,ITV,CHANNEL 4 channels etc,,

What IS the truth?

The truth is by end August/early September,these channels are migrating to another satellite with a narrower beam just focused on the U.K....

The question is,will SKY provide any solution?

The answer is already out there..they have..:-)..but you have to know how and where to obtain it.....:-)

There are currently 3 ways to get sky and other channels not indiginous to Portugal..

1.SKY HD***expensive,requires re boots every so often,fantastic EPG.

2.IPTV,streamed from the HD IPTV solutions are currently available and even to recieve decent SD you have to have a very good broadband connection..

3.Card sharing systems-there are a few boxes where quality is as good if not better than a sky box,with 1080p picture.(*sky is limited to 1080i) with far lower subscriptions but basic EPG.

Option2 I dont recommend if you want HD Quality...1 and 3 are the quality choices..and its very simple,IF you live here full time-then option 1..if you are here part time or rent your property..option3 ...

Streaming of 1080p HD requires about 9mbts per second bandwidth..
