Using a HUMAX satellite receiver to watch
Italian TV, mainly R

I understand that the channels are scambelled or withdrawn from satellite because of copyright reasons.

Thanks for the reply, would you happen to know what method they us to scramble the signal? Because when I was in Italy I couldn't get a straight answer. They must be able to watch the channels in Italy so I asked and all they would say is that you need SKY! Which I am sure is not correct.

It is probably what is called 'soft scrambling' where a rights holder (in defiance of European Law) demands that a programme not be broadcast outside the territory, so a SkyItalia subscription card is required to watch, even if no subscription is payable.

Listing for RAI channels can be found <img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQCAIAAACQkWg2AAABFUlEQVQoz2NUy9rAQApgYiAR0F4DCx8Xq46cAITz8dvvq48+YFW3rtyegYEhqPMgi46cwPxcK7jEyiMP6pZfJOykq48+5M89/fjN13AbBW05AQYGBlkRblkRbri6oM6DQZ0HGRgYWOCOefzmG4T96dvvpkj9cBsFBgaGx2++yopwJ04+Nj/X6tiN14mTj0FtsNIQXVduLyvC3bPxmpWGaLiNwtVHHxInH/v07Td2Jz1+8xVi9sojD/i4WBkYGGbtvn3sxuvt55/h0vCtZ+M1Pi7WicmmEFNL/LVS3VTTXFVxxsPsXbevPvpgpSEqK8y18sgDWRHuEn8tiM3IgBFXWuLjYuXnYsPUwIIrvD99+43pY7qkJQDKtm32kf+yPwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.rai.it link icon"> link iconRAI TV listings.
