HD from the BBC

Post Posted: Mon Jun 19, 2006 6:30 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone living in Spain has been able to receive the high definition satellite broadcast from the BBC? I’m over next weekend hopefully with a free to air pace receiver and really not sure if its going to work or not. Anyone receiving it yet?

Cheers…Jake

Hi Dirtballer,

Time for a change, like to take a few years out, see a little of the countryside, learn the language, spend time enjoying my hobby, photography. My family are all over there so I’m back and for as often as possible, I like it. Nice people, lots of countryside, good light. I’m over there so much these days it feels like home to me now more so than the UK.

Cool,

Poole has changed an awful lot over the last 5-10 years.

The beaches look awesome now though, infact better than ever, esp when the sun shines.

Although my details say I'm from London, we actually live in Poole.

But like you it's time for a change.

It's not the quiet little retirement resort it was in 1993 when we first moved in.

As long as you have a sky hd box then with a big enough dish HD is possible

That’s sounds good, if the Sky HD box works then the Pace HD box should work. The thing was I wanted to get all the Free to Air Channels along with the free HD ones but without subscribing to Sky. If the Sky HD box works in Spain then it should be fine. Will post next week on how I got on. Cheers…Jake
