We have the perfect solution to getting all your channels back and more!
Scores of British expats all across the European continent are up in arms due to recent changes in Astra’s transmission beam which has resulted in many favourite channels simply disappearing off their screens.
On 6th February, 2014 most free-to-air UK TV services were transferred to a new satellite, Astra 2E with many of Sky’s TV channels switching to new Astra 2F. This has proven catastrophic for viewers in southern Spain, Portugal and parts of eastern and southern Europe as these areas have lost almost all of the BBC, ITV, Four and Five variants, leaving just the subscription based Sky channels to choose from.
The reason for the loss is simply down to the newly switched satellites using a more powerful but narrower beam, meaning countries outside the target beam area no longer receive the signal clearly enough to watch these favourite channels.
Thankfully in this era of high speed internet, smart technology companies have been hard at work in developing solutions that no longer rely on receiving signals through traditional aerials or satellite dishes. Enter the era of IPTV…
Freeview TV is now available anywhere in the world using a smart little box
SkyCards.eu are proud to announce that we now stock and provide the award winning “Blade Stream” IPTV box; a compact and lightweight set-top box that delivers over 40 live UK TV channels direct over the internet.
The set top box acts just like a regular Freeview box and comes with a remote and connects direct to your TV set. Even better is the superb 7-day EPG. The system automatically connects to a remote PVR server that records the last 7 days TV meaning you never have the set the timer to record a show so you never miss a thing!
So whether you love your soaps, want to watch Match of the Day, catch the latest X-Factor or stay in with Graham Norton, all can be watched live or on-demand through your Blade Stream IPTV box.
And better still, shows can be downloaded and stored via the USB port so keeping your own archive of British TV is possible too!
What channels are available via the set-top box?
Presently, all terrestrial Freeview TV channels are available through our IPTV box including:
BBC One HD
ITV 1 HD

The majority of the more popular channels are recorded 24/7 and are accessible for the previous 7 days so even if you miss a show, you can still go back and watch it using the incredible in-built EPG. You have to see it to believe it!
Get back the channels you lost in HD!
The picture and sound quality this box delivers is stunning. You have to see it to believe it. Many of the channels deliver full 1080 HD with stunning clarity, all delivered with super smooth, sharp streams with brilliant sound quality.
