Sky satellite tv

We are planning our 1st trip to Cyprus (Paphos) and staying for 4 weeks early next year. As we will be staying for so long we will be self-catering and wondered if anyone knows which UK TV channels are available with the satellite systems in apartments as we won't be going out every night?

you would have to enquire if the apt has a 3 m dish Not all apt will have 3 m dish and usually they are a 1 m dish which you will pick up NileSat. Again you will have to enquire through the people your renting from

I think you will have to check direct with the owners / agents as to what they supply. To receive Sky direct here a very large dish is required and the actual box and card needed can be difficult. Local terrestrial TV is obviously in Greek but CYBC2 does have English language films and Euronews in English is becoming available. Rumour says there may be more channels but when? There are other satellite offerings available which have a high English language content, mainly from USA. What cable offerings are around I do not know as I do not have a land line let alone a cable TV connection.

So plenty of choices but which one does the apartment have?
