Re: Intelsat 907 / Satback Update - Major News!!!

Sorry Sid , I'm not very knowledgeable on this sort of thing. "Almost all the receivers have an option to attach a USB disk which will record and allow pause/play.

Re: Intelsat 907 / Satback Update - Major News!!!

Are we now safe to presume that the new Intelsat satellite will carry on working at least for the time being anyway ? I need to buy a new receiver but I've put off doing it until I was sure the reception wasn't going to disappear. Does anybody know if its possible to get a receiver that will also re...

Re: Firestick advice

If I changed my Amazon es account to Amazon UK and paid the extra subscription , would I still get free delivery in Spain and would I get Prime Video or would I have to pay extra again for that on top of my normal subscription ? Thanks

Re: Firestick advice

If I get a friend to buy a Firestick for me in the UK and set it up on their UK account then sign out before they post it to me in Spain, presumably once I sign in again with my Spanish prime account even using a VPN router all the UK apps will either not work or disappear ? I cant see any way I can...

Re: Annual health check

Thank you ..
Don't they do a health check that checks blood pressure , diabetes, cholesterol and various other things as well as a blood test ? Not sure what its called in Spain , similar to the NHS health checks available in the UK?
