    Hey guys, I need Sky in a different country than UK.. how can I do that?
    Where I live there isn't SKY, and I'm tired of streamings.. I want something better, like SKY UK.

    I know a lot of people simply buy the Sky card and box with the help of relatives etc and then use it in a different country.. but I don't have relatives there.
    I found a few sites that promise to do that.. but can't find any legit reviews.

    Can any of you guys help me out?
    It could be even a different broadcaster.

    I just want to watch all the sports, especially Tennis, with full coverage of Slams.
    Also I want other entertainment TV channels..that's why I thought of SKY.

    No I'm sorry..maybe I wasn't clear about it.. I'm just tired of streamings..

    I want to buy a nice big TV and then watch everything there with my Sky Box/other broadcasters.
    I want quality.

    Never heard of these.. My Internet speed is a 20 Mega..not sure if it could be enough with HD channels without lagging.

    Look into a dreambox, and then you gotta pay for a subscription which you can find on ebay

    I was into the satellite scene for a while there but got out when Sky UK blocked the HD channels whilst doing cardsharing. I know people who gave there family members UK Sky when there in different countries. Its really common. Your gonna need a motorized dish and a decent receiver. The skybox f5/f5s are cheap for a reason, they do the job but the menu is very sluggish.If your gonna do it you may as well do it right and get a box like a vu solo 2. I had 2 of these and there superb. Google cardsharing to get an idea what im talking about. Any help i can give you,just pm me or add me on skype

    i have 1, kryptview a780 and lets just say it gets everything
    downside is, u have to be on virmin media for it to work but its the same thing
    in theory,

    small sat box, use cables to connect it to your router and modem
    a quick update and everything sly tv has to offer is yours.

    box i use no sub fees just out the box update wired and go

    I found that you can't just buy the dreambox/skybox etc and start receiving the channels just like that..

    I'm still googling and let's see.. not sure if this could help me.
    Also, how much does it cost everything?

    Yes but i don't understand what I need to buy, where, how to get the channels etc..
    I want the entire Sky Uk world package + HD, not sure If I can get that.

    Maybe I should just get a Sky UK subscription? But then again I don't live there so I don't know how to get the subscription..

    Thanks, I asked there, hopefully someone can help me out.

    It's still strange, because even there you can't talk about card sharing.. And I don't know nothing about that, really nothing.
    Where to buy, costs etc.

    Oh well..let's just see if I can even watch Sky UK HD first.
