A number of UK television channels have been transferred to the new satellite at 28.2º east, Astra 2F, meaning that they have been lost to certain countries in mainline Europe.
Among these countries is Portugal, where expatriates are worrying about the inability to watch the programmes which they are used to.
Channel 5 is one of the channels which has vanished, but Astra has said that will depend on which spotbeam Sky decides to use, whether or not the missing channels will return.
Since there are a large number of expats and bars with legal Sky registrations it seems unlikely that the company would want to lose such custom.
Some people can receive the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 on Astra 2D and Astra 1N and those receiving information from these satellites are unlikely to see their services change.
Madrid, Alicate, Murcia have reported having better signal over the last year with Madrid, Alicate, Murcia experiencing poor reception.
