Dear Valued Client.
Given the issue of high internet bandwidth requirement for IPTV, it is clear that many UK expats will find themselves with poor and unreliable TV.
Especially those with wifi or non landline connections.
It may also be an issue for those with good Fiber connections if the providers cannot keep up with the high demand IPTV in its various guises.
There is another option. It is well known that for some time, BBC, ITV Ch5 and Ch4 have been broadcasting live channels on Intelsat 27 degrees west.
These channels are broadcast in full HD as well as SD and currently there are a range of BBC radio stations too.
This service often referred to as "Sat Back" This serves as a back up transmission for the UK digital terrestrial or free view masts in the UK.
This service is not intended for public viewing.
The signals are transmitted in an unusual symbol rate and are also encrypted.
However, there are certain consumer grade Satellite set top boxes that are capable of receiving these stations.
You would require a dish of approx. 1m. Most people here in the CDS already have a perfectly suitable dish.
This would need to be repositioned to point 27 degrees west of south.
This includes regular updates and support to maintain this service for as long as we possibly can.
This service has zero requirement of internet. So its perfect for those living in areas with poor or saturated internet connections. Or those wishing to use a more reliable medium for TV broadcasting.
