There are currently three alternative ways to continue receiving the mainstream UK TV channels via satellite.
1) Cheapest. Have your existing dish re-aligned to a different satellite (Intelsat 27.5°W) and change your set-top-box (Digibox). This will give you BBC1, 2 & 4 plus ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and BBC News24. There are also a few popular BBC radio stations. No on-going charges. NB Sky, Sky+, Sky HD and Freesat boxes will NOT receive these channels.
2) Optimum. ADD a second dish and change your set-top-box. This will give you the channels mentioned above, plus a good number of the channels you already receive on your existing dish. Again, no on-going charges.
Options 1 & 2 require a special decoder/receiver box. Please ask for details using the CONTACT US button at the top of the page.
3) Get IPTV. This requires no satellite dish, but it does need a good, stable broadband Internet connection AND you have to may have to pay a monthly subscription. This type of system gives a reasonable choice of channels and sometimes gives you catch-up TV. This is usually a subscription service- normally payable quarterly, half-yearly or annually, usually in advance. Picture quality is not the best, but is watchable. Due to PT's poor internet reliability, we do not offer any services of this type.
