Sky Italia and Tivusat installation in London


I live in London and I would like to receive Sky Italia in my flat. Can you help with that?

If so, could you please explain the process?

In order to receive Sky Italia as well as mainstream italian channels such as Rai, Mediaset, La7 and others from Tivusat, it will be necessary to install a 80cm satellite dish pointing to Hotbird 13E. This is not a problem for most of the properties in London, but there is a number of building where installation of a satellite dish may be restricted by Landlords, building management, or the council if the property is located in a conservation area, or it’s a listed building.

First of all, it will be necessary to check if there is any restriction in doing so, then check with me if the installation will be possible. This can be assessed most of the times with a quick check on your full address and post code.

    Very helpfull info for Sky Italia and Tivusat reception. Would you please add what hardware items I need to add to basic PVR and what account packages I have to purchase.

      For the Tivusat, the Humax 5600S can record on external USB hard drive:

      Tested with 500GB SATA HDD

      For the Sky Italia, the PVR option is only available with full contract subscribed directly in Italy, so unless you have address and bank account in Italy, the best bet would be to record on a external DVR system.

      Hope this helps.
