Sky tv

Hello all, Ive been looking and all the treads for sky tv are a few years old and I was wondering if anyone could help me please?

I did email one company that suggested now tv with a vpn router for live streaming, but Id like to be able to record and watch my favourite sky programmes whilst living in Turkey. I do have a sky box and subscription in the uk.

I wished Id asked some of the bars on previous visits how they managed to get it !

But any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you all

I was always led to believe that you need to install a 2.5 mt satellite dish just for starters.

Re: Sky tv

I get Sky through a local (Fethiye) provider. 200 a year for the whole Sky package + films on demand in HD when available. uses a Mag Box, which I am about to upgrade to give higher definition. Not through satellite, but phone line.

Re: Sky tv

There is/was a box available to connect your UK box to and mirror it and control it wherever, cant recall the name but was internet based.

It's a slingbox used with slingplayer app for casting to tv. It works well if you have decent internet speeds at both ends. Decent upload speeds needed at source end. No vpn needed.

Re: Sky tv

I have a firestick loaded with all the channels I would need, costs me 50 a year, I only bought it as a back up or to take on holiday, look how that turned out !, I try it once a week and it works perfectly, l particularly like the portability of ot, not sure if would need a VPN as I think it will be directed at a or a group of servers

You used to, perhaps not 2.5 mt (I managed quite well with 1.5 mt) but now they use a different satellite which only needs 0.9 mt
