How to get English TV in France

Yep we’ve succumbed! This is how you do it and it costs about 200 euros for everything:

Kit required:

1. A Humax box with Freesat –  it allows you to receive TV via satellite, costs about 100 euros from John Lewis

2. A satellite dish or ‘parabole’ in French, get it from Brico Depot  about 75 euros

3. A bracket to attach the dish to the wall, get it from Brico Depot, doesn’t cost much (‘support pour fixer une antenne parabolique’)

4. A long length of TV wire – something long enough to stretch from the dish to the TV
