Smile Spanish Wifi & Television

Hello

I'm new to the forum and want to thank everyone in advance for any help they can give me.

I have a holiday apartment in Murcia, Spain and unfortunately due to financial difficulties we are having to now rent the property out to others for a few months per year. This is likely to be both Spanish people and English friends/family.

Whilst we don't want to spend a fortune on satellite TV and Internet, we do think it's something that we need to have in the property.

Can anyone give me a few starting ideas for solutions they have, how easy it is to set up, prices etc.

I understand that by law all apartments built after a certain year have to be connected to a communal tv aerial, - but i could be wrong.
If not available, then you should be able to get your own aerial.
A TV aerial will get you about 40 Spanish channels, but with the bonus of if they show a UK / USA imported programme you can change from the dubbed Spanish language to the original English language.
As for internet, speak to your neighbours. Most "wifi" providers will allow you to switch on and off as and when you need it.

Thanks The Guy. Unfortunately, I don't have any neighbours at the moment to speak to. It's an area that remains empty until June/July every year. So, with regards to getting an aerial if there isn't one, who wopurchase this from? Would it just be a case of putting it on the balcony and tuning the TV in? Sorry, I'm not the most tech savvy
