Can I use my digital freeview box abroad and receive English channals?
No. You cannot receive signals from UK Freeview transmitters abroad. You box will be able to receive local "DVB-T" transmittions, if there are any.
You can use satellite equipment pointing at the Astra 2D satellite from some European countries however to get around 100 UK free-to-air channels.

Hi, we have a TV which we can switch from PAL to Secam plus a french digibox in our french flat, but it doesn't receive any programmes however hard we try, probably because it's not connected to an aerial. There is a communal satellite dish (which our neighbour has annoyingly built a wall in front of) - if we connect to that do you think that would work? Our chimney was removed during renovation so there's no aerial to connect to, we did try an indoor electric aerial with no luck. We only want french TV by the way. Hope you can help, thanks in advance.
