Humax Foxstat Freesat: English TV
Has anybody tried the new Humax Foxstat Freesat boxes? We are getting conflicting reports as to whether they will work in Turkey and what size dish is required. (We are in Datca.) We currently have Digiturk but having visited friends in Spain who have a Humax box we were amazed at the choice of programmes available, including all BBC and ITV channels. Although we're not big TV fans, now the nights are drawing in we're getting fed up of the Alf and Beko adverts!!!

Any advice (in laymans' terms) would be appreciated. Thanks.

Please be aware that it is the proximity and ability of your dish to get a signal from a satilitte carrying BBC or ITV chanels determins the ability of your box, whatever make, to recieve these chanels.
BBC and ITV are transmitted on the Astra 2D satilite which require a dish up to 4.5 metres Diameter in Turkey whereas in Spain an 80cm disc could be ok.

Thanks for your reply Sunseeker. Apologies for the time lapse but I am now back in Turkey, complete with freesat box and wondered if anybody could recommend a satellite installer in the Datca/Marmaris area.
