What,s the cheapest method of getting Sky TV on a moving boat

Customer Question

What,s the cheapest method of getting Sky TV on a moving boat in Corfu if any as they have now changed the satellite from ASTRA 2. I have a Tracavision system G6 with a Sky box and used to get most of the Sky channels apart from BBC ITV etc.

Hi Anthony

JACUSTOMER-pl3cmjca- :

Hi Anthony,All the units listed are not as good as the Tracavision G6 I already have. The problem is that the old Astra satellite is now switched off and Sky has now been re-located to a different satellite which the G6 can't locate. The previous footprint was only just covering Corfu anyway but now I think the new one is maybe not even doing that. I was asking whether there is another method of receiving Sky on my boat.

Anthony F. :

if the sat footprint does not cover your area there is nothing you can do

Anthony F. :

you can check that here
