The move ".... will take place in the early hours of Thursday 6th February 2014. Care has been taken to ensure the minimum of impact to UK viewers both during and after the change, such that no viewer actions should be required."

Be prepared for some significant changes !!
Fingers crossed also here in Italy!! I've upgraded my dish once, from 90cm to 130cm but cannot go larger than that.

If you have an iPad/Phone you can buy Apple TV (about E100) and watch all your beloved channels by streaming them through your IOS device.

a recent ex-pat

just do what the Spanish do, put it up there and forget to tell the planners

but as a dish is a "temporary" structure planning wouldn't be needed
