We have recently change from sky to Virgin (at home in uk) but before I throw all the sky stuff up the tip, can they be used in Spain for anything, probably not but wanted to check before they hit the bin.

You might be able to pick up a few channels with a 1.3m dish (or bigger) but Sky's overall plan is to make it impossible to receive any of their services outside the UK.

They only pay the programme makers for the rights to broadcast to the UK, so when Astra 2G goes live later this year it will only use 'spot beams'.

You should be able to get all your favourite programmes over a decent broadband connection though, using a free application called 'XBMC' on your laptop, PC or X-Box - or a 'Google TV' type Android box. I even have it working nicely on a 'Raspberry Pi'.
