The majority of Satgear users will be caravan, motorhome and camping enthusiasts who like to watch TV when they are travelling. You will likely want to use a satellite kit for one of two reasons:

 

You want to set up their own satellite dish systems to avoid exorbitant installer costs.

 

You prefer the free TV viewing options, such as ‘Freeview’ or ‘Free to Air’ instead of the high monthly costs of SKY.

Over recent years there have been very significant changes to receiving BBC and ITV channels because of the launch of the Astra 2E, 2F and 2G satellite beams and their narrower footprints more focused on the UK. Essentially, the evidence shows that where you once needed a 60cm dish throughout France and parts of Europe, now the further East and South you go, a 60cm dish will no longer suffice so a replacing to an 80cm or bigger will often bring channels back. Those that have noticed and reported the effects are British Expats and caravanners living/travelling through the Southern regions of France where they would have otherwise expected a 60cm dish to provide good signal.

 

The dish size guide below offers more detail and explains what we have done to help ensure that you are able to watch UK TV throughout Europe on your travels.
