which 220 channels?

That will mean it is capable of storing up to 220 channels.

* Stores up to 4,000 channels

Can I pick-up channels from different countries with this?

No, it states "Stores up to 4,000 channels"

Sounds like it may be good for caravans.

The only things good for caravans is either explosive or flamable.

Yes, but they are mainly foreign language channels, and your choice will be limited by the small size of the dish.

which 220 channels?



...depends on which satellite the dish is pointed at...:whistling:

Does anyone know if it's possible to use this set-up to get FreeSat and specifically the free HD channels like BBC HD?

This will be a Standard definition box so it wont pick up BBC in HD. It will however pick up all the Freesat channels as they are FTA (free to air) from the Astra/Sky satellite

I suspect the receiver will be the Comag SL25 or SL65 (also branded as Silvercrest) which are both pretty good and sold at maplins/Lidl/netto in similar kits like this. EDIT: The receiver is branded Tevion but probably still a Compag.

At this price it's a decent deal. Heat and rep.

EDIT: They seemed to be selling pretty fast at my local store this lunchtime.

will I be able to view the Sky programs such as subscribing to Sky sports?
