    Sounds too good to be true Cragster, but go ahead, tell all.

    Forgot to add, Welcome to the site.

    What kind of motorhome do you have/ are you looking for?

    Sir, this is *not* one of those sites. I think that you'll find Naughty_Mavis is on the other tab.

    Were it not a banned subject I would have pointed out the poor quality of the OP in terms of spelling, punctuation and grammar and therefore my suspicion that this is an advert from GOK where.
    Where is naughty Mavis when you need her?

    in reply to the questions prompted by the OP:
    you can buy subscription package from satellite operators other than sky.
    obvoisuly using their viewing cards outside their "proper" territory will be against the T&Cs of their use, similar to using a sky card outside the UK. And you will need to buy the relevant reciever also

    Many satellite operators have similar channel line up to sky.
    Many offer a few more goodies than UK Sky - for example some offer 3pm Premier Ship kickoffs. Showtime arabai show ALL UK premier league matches, downside you need about a 1.8m dish to get the signals in the UK!.

    Prices are about the same all over europe, it just depends on wht sort of package you have

    many channels are the same - and many are braodcaster in two languages - the native and the programmes original.

    And in reality sky is reasonably priced given it has the highest number of channels for a European satellite operator, it has the highest number of HD channels for a European satellite operator.

    What is the cheapest package anyone knows of in using sattelite here in the UK and in Europe from your Motorhome?

    And is there one where you can 'pay as you travel'?
    in the sense that if the MH is at home for 5 weeks going no where, I dont really want to be paying a monthly fee when it is not in use.

    The free-to-air channels that come with travel sat kits from Aldi, Lidl etc come close :Smile:

    Erm...Freesat or other free to air channels / systems

    many if not all satellite PAY TV providers ask for a minimim of a 1 year contract.
    even if you cancel and resubscribe, you will again be asked for a minimum of a year.

    If you are on Sky, why not just drop down to the one "mix" instead of whatever you are on at the moment, and then bump it back up to whatever you want when you go off.

    We always take our sky+ to Spain with us, as you say there is no point in paying a subscription and not using it! Sky works just like at home. I usually buy Michael the Sports channels when we go away so he can watch all the footy in the motorhome.

    We have one of those suitcase satellite dishes for use in the uk and until we get down to the south of France, once in Spain we have a free standing 80 cm dish which has withstood howling winds which have brought down safari rooms and trees!!

    I've tried both Aldi & Lidl in my home town & all I get is blank looks when I enquire about this subject? Has anyone actually got hold of a satellite system from either of these outlets?:Doh:

    Both of these outlets and maplin have the suitcase jobbie but not all the time it appears to be seasonal so just keep looking.

    If you have a Makro in your area they are worth a try for the 'camping kit' as are Maplin.
    Ours was about £50 a couple of years ago. Like Aldi and Lidle they don't have them all the time - I think it is a ploy to keep you going in to check.
    Have used it from Lands end to west coast of Harris no problem but couldn't get a cheep in Denmark.
