If you currently have a Fransat box and card, but would like the BIS channels as well, there is now an option to update your Fransat card with the BIS card ‘rights’. So without a physical BIS card , you can use the Fransat system to get both sets of channels.
This is a big advantage to users with single card slot boxes, no need to update the box, just email me to arrange to add BIS rights to your existing Fransat card.
BIS channels are available from Hotbird ( Eutelsat 13) AND Eutelsat 5w ( ex Atlantic Bird satellite ) so whichever your dish is pointing at, if you have a Fransat or satellite receiver with a Viaccess decoder, BIS can be available to you.
Our current favourite Fransat box, the Aston Diva Premium HD, has 2 card slots, so you can sign up for BIS, anytime after installation, with a BIS card or with rights transfer.
New VisioSat TNT 7600 model
For those whose main interest is French, but would also like to view other broadcasts from continental Europe. The 7600 from Visiosat is multi satellite capable and can tune in free channels from Germany, Italy, Spain as well as France
With a dish installed with 2 LNBs , viewers in most of the Uk can now use this box for the main TNT channels. It has a standard Eutelsat DISEQC system, that we can use to make the receiver choose the correct satellite automatically when changing channel.
As well as Italian, German, Spanish, and even Russian and Polish free channels!
The TNT 7600 has a very simple to program Favourite group system, one easy way to separate channels using this , is to save by Language. There are sufficient groups to save Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish and Uk channels in separate groups.
With a 2 LNB dish, you can expect over 800 free to watch channels in total, from all the countries broadcasting in Europe and the Middle East.
I would like to introduce you to my company Satellite TV Europe which specialises in French and other European language broadcasts. We install dishes and receivers capable of high quality digital pictures from all the main french broadcasters.
If you want just the Free channels, or TNT, BIS or Fransat systems, we have everything in stock including the special TNT and Fransat HD boxes ready to install for you. France broadcasts from 2 main satellites giving TNT or Fransat. There is the third option , most of the major channels TF1, M6, Fr2,Fr3, Fr5 and Arte are available free, without card or special box, the dish though is more complex as it collects signals from up to 4 different satellites to achieve this. One advantage of this “Free Channels” system is that channels from neighbouring Germany, Italy and Spain are also available and make for interesting viewing.
We are mainly asked for free channels but for customers wanting the subscription channels too we have links with a French company which will supply the popular BIS viewing cards for the ‘panorama’ pay per view channels inc. TF1 probably the most popular of channels from France. We can supply the BIS card when ordering a satellite installation, at a great discount compared with our competitors, currently 99 Euros. Now the French freeview channels are available from TNT at a one off price when ordering an installation ( with special TNT receiver ) or from the other French broadcast satellite – Atlantic Bird, from FranSat with the FranSat viewing card and box.
We can install anywhere in the Uk. We would be happy to quote , so please email with your location. I have installed in Bristol, Exeter London, Swansea, Anglesey Edinburgh, Aberdeen and just about everywhere in between!
Satellite TV from Frances main channels is mainly from two satellites – Atlantic Bird 3 situated at 5 degrees West ,and Astra 1 which is at 19 degrees East. There are also French regional channels on other satellites. This means you have plenty of choice of channels and where installation is blocked or difficult there is usually an alternative angle for the dish. For the ultimate choice why not have a special dish capable of receiving all 4 satellites. Our ‘multi satellite′ dish is capable of receiving from a very wide angle.
To see some of the channels available from France by satellite go to main satellite site
For those wanting both Sky and foreign broadcasts you can if you wish combine them using the multi3 dish. So that Sky and the French broadcasts can be received at the same time, maybe in different rooms or fed to a recorder for viewing later.
If you have need for other language broadcasts then a motorised satellite dish is the answer, the ultimate in sheer numbers of channels receivable, a motor system can log in some 5000 channels when installed, of which over half are viewable free ( FTA free to air ) and the others require various subscription cards to view.
To checkout the prices and to order go to the French channels page and click the FRANCE1, FRANCE2,MULTI OR MOTOR buttons
Students of language , Colleges and schools can make use of these services too , we install multi room setups in a number of different formats to suit all needs.
Receivers – for the free French channels our main receivers are the Technomate HD range, which have proved themselves very capable in fixed dish and motorised dish installations, the remote can be operated in two modes FAVourites or SATellite mode. In favourite mode, a user may save a list of favourite channels under his own name eg. Andys Fav. other users may have their own lists. In Satellite mode, the user simply selects the satellite with left/right keys , and channel with the Up /down keys. The receiver will take most major subscriptions cards without an additional CAM unit. For the TNT channels we now have both TNT and Fransat boxes in stock.
Our installer Andrew, always spends some time after installation to make sure the customer is familiar enough with the equipment to navigate to the desired channel and can operate it with any existing equipment like a Sky box, Tv, video or disc recorders and Hi Fi.
