Hello. Looking for any suggestion for New Years Eve events around perpignan as the events there don't seem to involve traditional music etcetera. Le Bacares seems a bit "tacky". Looking for something more traditional where the locals would go. Thank you

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!  .

Hi We are moving to Bize Minervois next month and are trying to set up our telephone and internet prior to arrival. The folks we are buying from are with Orange and we phoned them. The customer services guy told me that their service would only deliver 0-2mbps and that this would be insufficient for anything other than the most basic service. He gave me the number of NordNet (a subsidiary) who offer a service via satellite. Their package looks ok, but has a monthly limit of 15 Gigabytes - as our property is a Chambre D'hote/Gite I'm concerned that this might be burned by guests when we are busy. It requires a dish and set up kit for €199 and the company can provide a list of installers (at extra cost) Has anyone had any experience of NordNet? Thanks Cameron
