German Satellite TV installation

German satellite TV in UK. Installations for the reception of German channels, in standard and high definition on Astra 1. Stand alone German satellite TV installation for Sky Deutschland

German satellite TV channels in UK can be received installing a 60cm dish pointing to Astra1 satellite together with a satellite receiver. Mainstream national channels such as ARD, ZDF, Vox are available free to air, so the basic package will not require any ongoing payment other than the one-off for the satellite TV system installation.

Most of those channels are in high definition, and in order to watch them in crystal clear quality it is recommended an HD receiver. Additionally, HD channels such as RTL HD, Sat.1 HD, ProSieben HD, VOX HD, RTL II HD and may others are available with the HD Plus card and decoder. HD+  is a package of high-definition digital satellite TV channels for German-speaking viewers and is supplied with its own HD Plus decoder.

The best thing about choosing an HD+ decoder and card compared to any standard HD digital satellite receiver is the LCN (Logical Channel Number) which will update and store the channels following the same order used for terrestrial and cable TV in Germany, so Das Erste at channel n.1, RTL at n. 2, ZDF at n. 3 and so on.

London SatMan offers dish only standalone installation for Sky Deutschland and/or HD Plus decoders owners, full installation for FTA German satellite TV channels or full HD+ installation. Call for advice and free estimates.
