Can anyone recommend a good satellite TV installer who can provide full HD for British TV stations in this area?

Acox in Coin, been good for us so far. Broadband can be slow and drops out occasionally (expected in the campo) but the TV has never “buffered” whilst watching.

Thanks Paul. We already use Acox but they do not provide full HD, hence why am switching to satellite. Cheers.

Oops didn’t realise, let us all know how you get on, I might consider satellite in the future 👍

No worries. Have since had satellite installed and the HD picture quality is superb. The downside is that we are limited to the main terrestrial channels only - and no catch-up service available. Have also upgraded our IPTV to 15Mbits/sec via Conred in Coin. However, this speed is just on the limit to obtain HD channels without buffering, so not ideal. However, the range of available channels is amazing and catch-up is available on many channels, for all programs going back a month. So...

When IPTV can truly receive full HD programs without buffering, this is the way forward. In the interim, we are going to use both systems (satellite and IPTV)  in tandem.
