UK TV in Norway

Post Posted: Thu Nov 20, 2008 7:20 pm

Hello

we are moving to Kleppe near Stavanger in January and are trying to find out how we can get UK TV there. With two small children this is soooooooo very vital!!! We know we can get most channels with a satellite dish but have no idea what size of dish, type of dish and any other equipment we need. Does anyone have UK TV, Sky or whatever over there? Can anyone help with information?? Many thanks in advance!

I wouldn't worry about this - with a small/medium sized dish you'll get whatever you want.

Hi Kirsten,

We live in Sandnes which is very near to Kleppe, you will get a good signal with a 60cm dish, however for the extra couple of quid you should get an 80cm, we have this and do not lose any quality even in poor weather.... and there is plenty of that here! A local store, Biltema www.biltema.no do one for about 650 Krone, (they call the dish a Parabol here) if you need any help setting it up when you arrive give me a shout, I used to be a Sky installer in UK. And, welcome to Norway!

Can anyone tell me if I'll be able to get UK Sky reception on a normal size dish here in Oslo? I've been told previously I'll need a 2 metre dish but not sure how the neighbours would take to that!

Hi, you will be fine with an 80cm dish for reception, try and locate it in a protected area though, i.e somewhere where the rain will not dominate it as you may experience distortion then, if you can go bigger without annoying the neighbours then do it.

Regards

You could also look at www.my-private-network.co.uk, which gives you access to bbc iplayer and itv player for only 5 pounds a month.

good luck, Sara

I've tried so many ways to get BBC on the computer but no matter how I try, it's not available outside the UK. I think it's something to do with licencing rights in both countries.

Most channels in Norway are English/US with Norwegian or Swedish subtitles. You can get BBC Entertainment & Lifestyle, but only 2 companies provide it and they are Canal Digital and Get.
