Hello! As you can see by the title, I am having reception problems and I wonder if anyone could give me some advice?Having had problems over the last 3 years off and on, I was advised by a nice young man at Bricoman to change the Digibox. So I did. This new Digibox only seems to be receiving on Astra 28.2: 2A 2C and 2D and apparently I need 2F to get BBC and ITV Channels. On my old Digibox which came from England via my nephew, I was receiving all freebie channels (except for the odd stormy weather). Is it because this box was programmed in France and my old one was programmed in the UK? Have I fiddled around too much with the dish? Is my dish too old (on the old box Intensity and Quality signals are excellent) or need a new or extra head? The new Digibox is receiving many channels clearly.I would very much appreciate your suggestions. Thank you in advance.Ponytails
I know this subject has been about for a long time but now that Filmon have decided to remove watching for free it is time for me to face the fact I have to find the perfect platform for watching UK programmes whilst living in France. I would gladly like your input how you watch programmes from the UK, what cost there is involved, how successful it is, and whereabouts you live. I am in St Julia de Bec and we are thinking of going down the satellite dish route. Perhaps we should start a forum whereby we can all help each other with this problem.

Hello, Please be prepared to be bombarded with questions as I make plans for my imminent move to the Uzes area. The first is an internet question with a twist. I have to admit that when it comes to gadgetry and especially the internet I am a dinosaur. I am capable of standing in PC World with a total lack of understanding at what I am looking at or why I would need it. As my family no longer consists of teenagers to resolve my issues I feel the need to seek help from this forum where other dinosaurs may have been helped through similar technical matters by their teenage offspring. This year I shall be bringing my boat across the channel at which point I shall be throwing overboard my contract smartphone that I never fully understood and purchasing a cheapy pay as you go phone purely for phone calls within France Question 1. Any advice which provider for best coverage? I shall be sailing through the rivers and canals down to Languedoc Roussillon where I shall be remaining. Questions 2 (The main one) and 3. I want to fit the boat with equipment that will provide me with a reliable internet service. This will be my primary means of communication with home throughout the journey and at the end of that journey I shall be living on the boat for 6 – 12months whilst property hunting so the internet will be used extensively. What gadget do I need to fit to the boat to receive the internet signal (Can I buy it and have it fitted in UK or will I need to buy it in France) and any advice about which internet service provider will be the most reliable for me Thanks Graham Wilson
HI, My son & his wife recently employed an English wedding planner! The charge was €2300 The service was poor & the music, cake etc. (which were extra of course) were also very poor. We have asked for a partial refund which has been refused. I know that many couples from the UK are coming to France for a wedding or ceremony & feel that this company are ripping them off! .
