  2. It seems, that my satellite isp has got cold feet, they have decided to cut off the UK from their transmissions. BskyB have sent letters to all outside uk transmitting satellite companies, with the threat of legal action. I have contacted BskyB telling them of the situation, that because of their threat, my broadband company will no longer connect me. I asked them when will I be supplied with BskyB satellite broadband, their answer is never, they dont supply such a system, but to get in touch with a UK supplier.

  3. My Broadband is via satellite, using a company that is now in Germany used to be by a uk based company, but this German company has bought them, and closed down the Uk branch. So I actually pay for my Sat connection in Euros to Germany. This has not been a problem for the last 5 years. But just recieved an E-mail from them stating that because of a legal dispute with BskyB they are no longer allowed to transmit to the UK. How do I find any info on a legal dispute between Teles-skydsl and BskyB?

  10. Great! Thats me then. Will i have to change my aerial splitter? I have the roof Aerial connected to a four way splitter connected to 4 TV`s
  11. I have also been informed, that if you purchase a top set box or freeview to pickup these Digital channels, you need to replace your analogue aerial to digital aerial, when the switch over happens. I can see the installation companies putting there prices up, if this is the case.
