I,m coming down to Condado for a few months from end November. Could anyone let me know the best options for installing UK TV channels and Internet access and any relevant costs?

Thanks much appreciated.

John

Hi John,

I've also been looking for the same information. Searching from earlier posts in these forums and google, some English language television options are:

TDT (similar to UK Freeview) - these are local Spanish channels, some of which have the English track of American/British TV shows, so probably not the best option.

Cable TV from A2Z Telecomunicaciones - this requires a Cable (DVB-C) set top box ("digibox") which can be purchased from the Polaris Supermarket for 130 or so, however there are cheaper options elsewhere. If you have or buy a TV with built in DVB-C tuner, you won't need a separate set top box. The monthly costs show up as 0per month, but assume this is covered by the community fees.

Not sure what the options are with Satellite TV, and whether there is a community dish or restrictions on putting up your own dish, but would guess this isn't the cheapest or most practical option. 

Cheapest internet option - assuming you require this permanently - appears to be the basic 2Mb service from A2Z. The monthly costs show up as 0 per month, but have read on these forums that 60 (or thereabouts) is added to your community fees. You will need to purchase a cable modem from A2Z  for 77, which gives you wired internet access. If you want wifi in your apartment, you'll also need to purchase a separate wifi router which then plugs into the cable modem, or you can purchase the cable modem with built in wifi option from A2Z (155).

 

Hope this helps,

Tam.

Just arrived on Condado for Christmas. We have the original digibox bought from Polaris. We've noticed that a lot of the English channels have lost their signals or keeps freezing. Have updated channels via 'maintenance' but to no avail. Any suggestions on how we remedy this? Incidentally, we tried another similar box and had the same problem.
