To watch English tv in France you need to have a satellite dish connected to a digital receiver (Sky Digibox or Freesat receiver) in turn connected to your television.
The satellite dish needs to have a clear view of the south east (approximately where the sun is mid morning) and to be adjusted so that it points EXACTLY at the satellite which is about 22,000 miles away!. Accuracy of installation is paramount in receiving good clear signals, just half a degree off can mean the difference between a good signal or no signal at all!
We have been involved with installing satellite equipment since 1987 and now cover Normandy, Brittany, Mayenne, Loire-Atlantique and areas of the Charente. We have contacts in most other regions of France to help you too.
We're able to install our equipment for you using our very precise and accurate signal measuring equipment, alternatively, if you already have your own dish or receiver, we can install that too (subject to your equipment being serviceable and in good repair).
Our customers have told us that when they have brought their zone 1 dishes (43cm) over from the UK, they have a lot of picture break-up in bad weather. So, due to the distance away from the “footprint” of the satellite in France, we always fit a Zone 2 dish and wall mount for optimum performance. This is even more important since the new satellites, currently being phased in, have a footprint that is more focused on the UK. The further away that you are from Mainland UK, the larger the dish required for uninterrupted viewing.
All of our installations are guaranteed for 1 year against faults for your peace of mind (see our Guarantee page)
We have fitted more than 3000 satellite systems now for Ex Pats in France and have gained a good reputation for quality installations and excellent customer service
