Will my Freeview box work in Gandia Spain?

Many UK Freeview boxes do work in Spain and you can use a Freeview receiver / set top box in Spain.

The UK Freeview receiver will only receive the Spanish digital TV channels.

This is beacuase the Freeview box connects to a TV aerial, and in Spain only SPanish TV vchannels are available via a TV aerial.

Just like in the UK where you can only receive the UK Freeview channels via a TV aerial and not the SPansih TV channels in the UK via a TV aerial.

However, there may be some problems with using a UK Freeview set top box in Spain.

Firstly, you must ensure the box can scan frequency 69 – a frequency that is not used in the UK but it is in Spain.

Also UK boxes may not be able to change programmes into their original language as some UK boxes are programmed to look for English, Welsh and Gaelic language “tags”, where as in Spain they use different language tags like “Dos” or “VO” (Version Original), or “Multi” or “Und”, SET does use an “English” tag.

Channels changes on Sky Freesat and Generic receivers in Spain (True Movies)

If you are watching these chanenls on Sky TV in Gandia, or Freesat TV in Gandia then this iwll not affect you. But if youare watching these channels in Gandia on a "generic" free to air satellite receiver, then these channel have recently changed their frequency:

Bliss
Chart Show
Dance Nation
Flava
Kix!
NME
Pop
Pop Girl / +1
Scuzz
The Vault
Tiny Pop / +1
True Ent
True Movies 1
True Movies 2

The new frequency for these channels will be 11307V 27500 2/3

It is thought that one reason for this change is the fact that their old frequency was prone to interference from DECT / wireless phones, BT homehubs, some wireless internet routers and some home equipment. Some of the channel even run adverts saying if you are having interferance and channel drop outs, then move your DECT / wireless phone or internet roouter away from the satellite receiver and cabling.

If you use a Sky box or a freesat box then the changes will be done automatically.

If you are using a non sky or non freesat receiver - a generic receiver - then, should you wish to still receive these channels then you will need to perform a rescan of the new frequency.
