    NHK from Japan in English is available easily with a Sky dish.

    You can only get channels from satellites that are above the horizon.
    You can only get channels if you're pointing at them, but you can use multiple LNB's on one dish or a movable dish too.
    You can only get pay channels if you pay for them.

    Most satellite dishes here point at 28.2°E for UK. Freesat is free.

    19.8°E has German channels
    13.0°E has Italian channels, Tivusat is the Free To View system
    9.0°E has Irish channels but you need a Ka LNB and a dish without holes.

    Just out of curiosity ..... why this?

    I don't need Saorsat so not really bothered, just curious ;)

    It's on a different band so the wavelength is shorter by half.

    Just means you shouldn't use a SKY dish.


    Long term we may see more spot beams like this , but for now let's enjoy the foreign overspills.
