UK Freesat TV in Spain
Watching and receiving Freesat TV in Spain is exactly the same as if you were to watch and receive Freesat TV in the UK.
First you need a satellite dish - for our service area (Valencia and the Costa Blanca North) you will require a satellite dish measuring a minimum of 100x110cm. A larger 125x135cm satellite dish is the recommended satellite dish to receive the main channels on Freesat.
For other areas outside our service area, a much larger satellite dish, such as a 1.8m / 1.9m satellite dish , a 2.4m satellite dish or larger satellite dish may be required. Our Astra 2E Satellite reception map for Spain gives an indication of what size satellite dish can receive the main UK TV channels on Freesat.
Second you will need a Freesat set top box satellite receiver - there are a handful of manufacturers of Freesat receivers, producing Standard Definition Freesat receivers, High Definition Freesat Receivers and High Definition Recording Freesat receivers.
Sky currently produce two digiboxes, the Sky HD "multiroom" digibox, and the recording Sky+HD digibox.
And finally you will need a Sky card and Sky subscription - Sky TV subscription prices will depend on which Sky TV packages and channels you choose.
Freesat TV Satellite Installations Spain
We are supplier and installers for all the equipment you need for watching Freesat TV in Spain.
We use the best satellite dishes, the best LNBs, and the best official Freesat set top boxes for your requirements. (Unlike some installers in the area who use what equipment is best for them, not their clients!).
We are aware that some satellite installers in Spain sell other makes of satellite receiver, such as GI, Galaxy Innovations, Iberosat, Ferguson Ariva, claiming they are Freesat receivers. These satellite receivers are NOT Freesat receivers. They do not have the Freesat logo on them, they do not have the Freesat software on them, and they do not have the 7 day Freesat programme guide. So if you ask for a Freesat receiver, make sure you get a Freesat receiver!

Freesat and Freeview
Freeview is the UK TV service available in the UK. Freeview is transmitted by land based TV masts. Freeview is not transmitted by satellite. So despite what you may have heard, Freeview is NOT available in Spain.
However, many of the channel on Freeview are available on Freesat, which is available in Spain.
