180cm Satellite Dish

What size dish do I need?

To receive Sky TV and the best English language TV signals in Portugal, you will need at least a 180cm (1.8m) dish for a reasonable reception from Astra satellite. The island of Madeira however requires a much larger dish of 300cm (3m) across in diameter, if you want a reliable and stable reception of all Sky TV channels. With intermittent weather conditions, anything smaller can lead to a loss in channels.

Depending on where you live in Portugal, the size and type of dish varies to receive a clear Sky TV signal.

To be completely certain of the correct size dish required where you live, please contact your local professional satellite dish installation company or you could go for Now TV through the internet.
