 We are in Playa Flamenca. We bought a TDT box which enables you to pick up Spanish digital. You need to check if your arial is OK. We tuned it in and picked up 28 TV stations. There is a language button on the remote. If the broadcast was made in English orginally and you press the button the English sound track plays! the other evening there were 8 stations broadcasting films in English, another evening we found 4. Better than nothing, its free bar the box which cost 45 Euros. You can't get UK stations but then I don't go to Spain to watch TV! lol!

We have a 1.9m dish on our holiday home to get free to air TV and it works very well, we even managed to talk to a few neighbours who also decided to join us. This meant that we have 4 neighours using our dish and we split the cost, less than half the price even with all the extra work involved.

 Also as I understand the Spanish High court is due to rule in July whether Re-broadcasting TV of any language will be banned completely so be careful paying out for an installtion from another company just yet!
