Anne :
You don't say what model you've bought. Many will setup for various countries but if yours is designed for the UK market only it will only use channels 21-68 UHF. The good news is that DVB-T standards are used in Germany so you should be able to get the local channels via an antenna. Only satellite, Sky or Freesat, will give you access to UK channels but the dish size will have to be big to get the now much reduced spillover of the tight UK beams. You are not far out of the 60cm contour but the falloff could be rapid so a 1 to1.5m dish may be necessary for the Freesat(and Sky) PSB services of BBC and ITV.
