Can I receive UK TV in Ghana?

Can I receive UK TV in Ghana?

No, the satellite footprints are focused on Europe, and cannot be received in Ghana, I'm afraid.

makelele: I found this page on the National Communications Authority's website:

It states that the DVB-T2 standard will be adopted which is that used in the UK for Freeview HD. Freeview standard definition uses the earlier DVB-T standard, so they will not work in Ghana.

In short, it will need to have a Freeview HD receiver to receive Ghanese TV broadcasts.

Brian: See:

SADC has accepted the DVB-T2 signal standard with MPEG4 compression for the pictures.

In the UK Freeview standard definition uses the earlier DVB-T standard with MPEG2 compression.

However, Freeview HD uses DVB-T2 with MPEG4 so a Freeview HD receiver "might" work.

Automatic update every 1 minute

Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'
