French & UK TV on one dish with one receiver!
It is possible to have both UK TV from Astra2 and TNTSAT from Astra1 on the same satellite dish. Using an off-set bracket, the dish can accept 2 LNBs to receive transmissions from both satellites. Using a DiSEqC switch means that only one cable is required and better still, only one receiver is required. Please see the end of the French TV section for further details.
4th June 2016 - A recent software update is causing major problems to owners of a Sedea or Digitronic receiver that is set up to receive both French and UK TV. Please visit the 'News & Info' page where updates will be posted.
30th March 2016 - Please note that due to the popularity of Tooway, there are currently no new domestic activations possible on beams 15 & 21 (which covers most of central France) until further notice. Essentially, this means that whilst I can install your own satellite broadband equipment, I am unable to supply it.
