Very good price within its limitations.

Small dish will make satellite location easier than large dish (it has a wider acceptance angle).

The dish size means it will work well in most of the UK (less good further north and west you go) but can be dismissed for use on most of the Continent because of the tiny 30 cm dish . However adding an 80cm (8 times the signal collecting power) dish will give better range if you can handle the bigger dish. The real problem is UK FTA (free to air) TV like BBC/ITV etc are all on a fairly focused spot beam and outside the UK you need increasingly large dish size (on Spain's Costa Blanca you need 2,400 cm dish for example)

It's a waste of money just because you never used yours and stuffed it in a shed??

Your self centred logic never ceases to amaze me

Voted hot for cheapest price, and that I have one for my small camper and it works great.

Or you could pay Sky £50 a month for loads of channels and still have very little to watch?

No longer true, a 1.3 cm dish works just fine on the Costa Blanca these days.

Lets all go on holiday to watch TV.............

Should be able to pick up German channel RTL with this and watch the F1 for free for the next few seasons.

"No longer true, a 1.3 cm dish works just fine on the Costa Blanca these days." which of course has some 2,000x the signal collecting power of the 30cm dish included with this kit.

Terrible quality units, save your money.

If you lived in Spain, you wouldnt get a portable kit would you ?? You'd get a big dish which would be motorised to get the maximum amount of channels.

I do actually have a property in Spain, I use a 1.3m dish for Sky/Freesat alongside a 1m dish which runs Hotbird and Astra 1 via 2 lnb's, these are fed through a Diseq Switching unit that gives instant access to all 3 satellites....no waiting for any motor to move the dish.

And no, this unit would not be any use at all in Spain, I was just correcting the duff information given in post # 1, for clarity.

The sd set up is available for £35 del.
Is there that much difference in the two apart from HD channels
