British TV in France after the 'February 2023' change.

Have you lost your favourite TV channels ?

Domestic British television was easilly received in France for free via a satellite dish untill some important changes took place on the UK Astra 2 satellite in February and March 2023. This  made satellite reception in the South of France, The South East of France , Central France and in the French Alps  quite difficult. Expats need now to upgrade their satellite systems, replacing receivers to HD dedicated models and also increasing dish size in some fringe areas to obtain stable BBC reception.

The good news are that there is a way arround and we can help you  restore reception quickly. First of all it is necessary to determine if your existing satellite receiver is still compatible after the BBC changed transmission standard in early February 2023.  e-mail us here  the brand and model of your receiver, your postal code, and approximate dish size and we will tell you what needs to be done to have back the BBC channels.
UK TV can be received in France either through a satellite HD receiver and a dish or via a new technology Broadband HD TV receivers or eventually streaming on tablets, laptops and similar. The last solution is rather for the frequent traveller and if you want a stable HD picture on your standard TV screen you rather choose one of the first two options. Understanding well the difference between the two technologies is essential to make the right for you choice. Satellite reception has still some advantages such as no monthly fees,  and most importantly, it  is totally independent ofrom your internet debit. The only inconvenience is that it requires a dish.  While the antenna dish size for Paris and the Northern part of France is very small ( 45 - 50 cm only ) further down in the South you will need a larger dish,  80 cm in Central France, or 125 cm in Toulouse and even 160 cm in Nice.  Installing a big dish is costly, so the quich and cheaper solution is UK TV Broadband  HD receiver. To understand better the difference between the two receivers and take the right decision  simply ask for our documentation here. It includes prices of equipment, channel lists, subscription costs (if any) and other details...

I reside in a listed area, dishes are not allowed ...

Well, it seems that new technologies help bypass the dish permission...  Small and discrete  the Broadband TV receivers will allow you to have UK TV in listed areas with restrictions. However this is possible only if you have decent internet at home. Mesure your download speed to see if you are eligible for this service.
