Can I get American tv via satellite in Europe?

The orbital position of the direct-to-home satellites for North America means that they cannot be received with domestic satellite equipment.

Hi, I live in the UK and have a satellite system which only picks up German stations. Do I need a UK TV licence to watch these broadcasts?

Recently ESP America went off air, is there any way to pick up ESPN from the US in the UK?
I do not mean the present single ESPN channel still operating through BT.

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'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
