Default Anyone tried getting Sky TV in Abu Dhabi - or can recommend a solution...

Hey all,

When I was in Libya, I set up my sky dish and box and happily watched whatever I wanted....except when weather conditions affected Line of sight....

Anyone tried this in Abu Dhabi?

Is there another solution you can recommend if it doesn't work?

Cheers

Watch it through your laptop or a Mini Mac set up. Just need a sky go account and you are away.

On the dream box you can pick up polish sky. Basically English sky with polski adverts.

The little map above says you can't watch in Libya, but we did....accept though that UAE is an inch or do further south....

I'll try the various online options and maybe the Polish sky mentioned.

Cheers
