Sky tv

Hello fellow members. Does anybody know if you can still receive Sky tv in Carvoeiro ? I know that a few years ago Sky changed the satellite & it became difficult to receive the signal. I have seen a few posts on other forums that if you realign your dish it will receive the signal ok.

Re: F1.. who needs it!

It is such a shame that we are in the midst of the horrible virus situation when the Algarve finally gets F1 it has wanted for so long. I hope that it is a big success & that it becomes a regular venue on the F1 tour as it would bring in much needed revenue to the area.

Re: Lagoa restaurants

We too have been to Gaspatcho & Migas in Lagoa & found it an excellent place to eat with food with great taste & flavours. The staff were very good & the owner took the time to come to every table to see if everything was okay, a nice touch which you don't always get at other places.

Re: Solar panels and EDP

I think it would be a worthwhile exercise to ship over your own solar panels etc as you can buy them over here for approximately a third of what they cost in Portugal.

Re: Solar panels and EDP
