  • Yes you do need a box, the signal comes from Gomera, so it does loose its signal now and again
    we paid the initial fee of 600 plus ariel, then it is 100 per year, you could try 922169311 the people are German

    I thought Premier only provided satellite or IPTV.  IPTV requires an internet connection, which Keith excluded as a possibility.  CSTI (922 16 93 11) provide a box which receives satellite signals re-transmitted from Gomera via a small UHF antenna.   This costs about 600 + 100 p.a.  and provides BBC, ITV and other UK channels.  However, Premier are currently stating on their local radio advertisement that BBC will disappear from accessible satellites in the Canaries in the next few weeks along with other channels, some of which have already gone (e.g Sky News).  I don't know how this will affect CSTI.  Maybe their big Gomera dish will be immune to these changes, along with the big dishes on complexes such as San Francisco.  Does anyone know any more?
