How can you receive Sky (with UK and US TV programmes) in PARIS or in Suburbs ?
You need a satellite system, a Sky HD Box and a Sky Viewing Card, and a UK VPN Router from us
Whenever the satellite is not possible, but still you have a good ADSL or Fiber internet system, we can connect you the best of SKY TV via our NOW TV and VPN system or US & UK channels via our IPTV systems.
Is it illegal to watch Sky in Europe ?
No, it is not. But the Contract with Sky has to be based in UK.
Due to the licensing arrangements between Sky and Hollywood, Sky can only be subscribed to by UK residents. Residents in France will therefore need to subscribe for a Sky Card via CITYSAT who arranges subscriptions without address in UK: firstname.lastname@example.org

How does CITYSAT cover the AFTERSALES SERVICE ?

Our warranty covers the first year after installation on equipment, satellite system and decoder: we take care to come for repairing the system in 3 working days after being informed of the issue.
How big is the dish ?
The size of the dish depends on the channels you want to watch. Some channels come with weaker signals than others. For instance a single dish (with our LNB) for the British & U.S. channels ( Sky Digital) should not be bigger than 45 cm ( 16 inches) for the Paris area, Britanny, Normandy... In Montpellier, Avignon, Bordeaux the Dish is 80cm. In Cannes, Nice : 1m20
How to receive Digital satellite TV without installing a dish ?
We have IPTV and NOW TV systems which allow you to watch English & American TV (or SKY TV) : you won't need a satellite system but a good ADSL or internet system with of course your HD TV.
Are there any restrictions when setting up a satellite dish ?
Most of the channels are picked up with a dish less than 50 cm in diameter (18 inches) what does not require a special permit to install. The French Law on antennas from July 2nd, 1966 and the European Commission gives you the right to have your own satellite installation for getting your foreign channels.
When necessary we can obtain for you the necessary permits to install a satellite dish. We strongly recommend that you call us first and upon your request, teh technical Manager will visit your home to mesure the signal and verify that you can receive the satellite service. We cover the large Paris area (Ile-de-France) To get an appointment call 01 40 11 79 88
Is my existing TV set good for satellite TV ?
To get satellite channels in Europe, your TV set should have at least the PAL colour standard. A multistandard or PAL/Secam TV set is even better. American TV sets (NTSC) are not suitable for Europe: a transcoder NTSC/PAL is quite expensive and often costs the price of a good European TV.
Can I watch satellite TV on all TV sets at home ?
YES, our digital satellite systems allow connection to more than one TV in the house.
