Garry: Yes, that is correct. As long as you have a large enough dish pointing at the correct satellites.

Hi Garry,

Yes if your dish is big enough (this varies with location in spain) you should be able to get accurate dish size info for you location from the local expats

Sky 3 has always seemed to be redolent of Jim Bowen in his heyday, saying "Come and have a look at what you could have won", so whether it's called Sky 3 or Pick<TV> or even Pick<Nose> it'll always be the crumbs dropped from the supposedly bountiful offerings of Murdoch's (very expensive) top table.

Edward: I'm not sure why Sky have removed their name from the channel, I guess it was probably dragging their reputation for quality television into the mud.

Oh yeah, sorry.

Briantist,thanks for the information regarding the moving of SKY3 to 153/3, I was afraid that we had lost it, we get few enough channels as it is here in Greece.

I am watching a programme called "Dog Squad" and so far I have not seen one dog!!! Why is it called DOG Squad???

G. Harris:

DOG = D.O.G. = Digital On-screen Graphics.
It's the annoying channel logo they display over a program in the top left (or right) of the screen.
Some DOG's aren't too bad as they are semi transparent, but some like the CBBC one in colour and moving about are harder to miss.
I think the worst one is on MTV with a logo in the left and right corners and a bar to show you the percentage to the program.

G. Harris: It's called "Dog Squad" because it's about the sniffer dogs who work for UK Customs. I love this show but it's fair to say that most scenes feature the human personnel at work. Stick with it though because there really are some beautiful dogs to be seen.
