A quick guide to British television in France
Domestic British television 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 as easy to use remote and menu, all channels are
on one list, and most importantly is independent of 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 one of 125 cm ( Perpignan area)
or 140 cm ( Nice ) to receive correctly all the BBC & ITV channels
from the Astra 2 UK satellite,. If your home is in the South of
France and you have a decent internet conection your may go for the "no dish"
HD receiver. To understand
better the difference between the two receivers and take the right
decision simply ask for our documentation

costs (if any) and other details...

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. Find out more...
