We have recently received a number of enquiries about a recent loss of certain UK satellite TV channels such as Channel 5 and 4Seven so we have put together some information for our home owners on the Costa del Sol to keep you updated.

The loss of the popular UK satellite television channels is due to them moving from Astra 1N to Astra 2F and more channels are also planning to move satellites between now and next summer. It has been said that if you have lost channel 5 now, it is highly likely you will lose all BBC, ITV channels and the remaining channel 4 group after they make the move to the new satellite.

There are a companies who are offering solutions to this such as IPTV which is television through your internet and some residents have been told a bigger satellite dish is the answer, however if you don’t really miss the channels you have lost, the best thing to do at the moment would be nothing. When more of the channels start to move satellite you will be able to see what you are still able to receive with your current satellite dish, as the coverage received in Spain from the new satellites is unknown. So don’t be rushing out to buy a bigger dish just yet!

If you rent out your Spanish property and are concerned your tenants are losing television channels, rest assured HomeCareontheWeb will answer any concerns from your tenants and advise them of the latest updates and any possible solutions such as filmon.com.

  1. I have an apartment in calahonda and if and when this satellite stops transmitting british tv ,a lot of ex-pats will be very unhappy. as the situation in spain is a lot worse than the uk I would have thought the Spanish government could have wanted to intervene to keep the money flowing as the uk is still the biggest visiter to spain
