*N.B. a satellite dish is installed, however the satellite signal for UK channels has been reduced as of February 2014, so it’s no longer possible to receive them in Portugal. At the moment the situation is unclear as to whether a new signal will be introduced, so for the time being we are waiting to see what happens. We may set up access to UK channels via the internet if it looks like the signal changes are permanent. Some UK and international news channels are still available via the satellite.
