Getting Sky TV on the Costa del Sol
Here on the sunshine coast setting up and installing Sky TV is one of the biggest and fastest expanding expat businesses around. Some reports claim that as many as 7 out of every 10 expats on the Costa del Sol have the satellite dish and equipment necessary to receive Sky TV. That’s an awful lot of Sky boxes. And then there are other popular expat enclaves such as the Costa Blanca where the take up of the Sky service is just as if not even more popular.
And then there’s all the bars and other businesses that show Sky TV throughout the day, especially when big football games are on. Take a stroll down the seafront in places such as Fuengirola, Benalmadena or La Cala de Mijas, and you’ll be hard pushed not to find a good number of blackboards with the latest games written up in chalk.
With so many subscribers it’s no wonder that getting Sky TV has never been easier with a multitude of installers and experts to choose from and compare against.
There are many, many options available for the type of equipment you could use and also the company that installs it for you. in the Costa del Sol so it’s definitely worth comparing a few presupuestas (proposals) before committing to spending your money. For a complete Sky HD setup with a new dish, box and card you’re probably going to be spending anywhere between 4-500 Euros (plus the monthly fee if you’ve opted for anything other than Freeview). A not exactly insubstantial amount of money and obviously it’s wise to be a bit cautious about who you give it too.
