Hi, we are now getting WiFi through La Janda but it is very hit and miss. We would like to be able to watch British tv. We have a sky box fitted but we are told that no longer gives us many, if any, channels.if we got good internet and a new smart tv would we be able to watch the channels we have at home? We are not bothered about 100s of different channels just the popular ones. We live near Plaza España in Vejer.

All advice gratefully received, Val

Hi Val,

Not sure if you have sorted this out, however, we have a Smart TV and also unable to receive British programmes.  British channels moved to a new Satellite a couple of years ago whereby it is now not possible to receive anything unless you have a huge satellite dish!

We watch Netflix and Amazon Prime via the internet & smart TV.

Hope this helps,

Susan

Thanks Susan

We eventually got a  freeview box and can get all the usual British channels so we’re quite happy with that.

Thanks for your reply, Val

Thanks for replying and sorry that I appear not to know what I’m talking about 😉😂 This is what we were told ... so you can imagine my surprise when you said you can receive the programmes!!! Have to look into this now and maybe buy a free view box from UK and try it when we come to Vejer this week!

Steve Harris in Chiclana fitted ours, he seems to be the guy everyone uses.

His number is

0034 679195027

He did a good job. We are back in U.K. now but it’s nice to have British tv especially in the winter months!

Cheers Val

Hi, you just need a laptop or mobile phone and then install Express VPN app.

That allows you pretend you are in the uk - So you can watch the standard ITV and BBC channels.

I have been using this for a long time and works very well.

Its less than 20 pounds per month.

Let me know if That helps
