Alternative to SKY Satellite TV

"Non-UK" (Across Europe + Greece + Crete)

 UK Satellite TV via Broadband


Brits in Crete (BIC) web portal no longer can offer a Sky TV subscription for programming in Crete. The original offer included the other Greek Islands and Continental Europe using the non-UK version of a ‘Viewing Card’ with the option to purchase Sky standard, Sky+ and Sky HD ‘box & viewing card’ deals for those who are starting out from scratch. The informal advice we offer here is to use a UK address, then apply for the Sky TV service you want with a viewing card and a SKY HD Box and take the kit with you when you are go to Crete. Use the BritsinCrete Forum to ask questions and do a search in the forum to find out how you can get help from other Brits already outside UK and what others are saying about Sky TV in Greece! Note: From November 2011, many British TV channels have been moved to the new Astra 1N satellite. This makes reception of many of the Sky TV and Freeview channels more difficult in Greece and Cyprus due to a smaller coverage area in the Astra 1N satellite's footprint.
