Here is a site devoted to Satellite channels from Germany.
For the last 10 years i’ve been installing satellite tv from Germany ( and most european countries ) in England Scotland and Wales. I do both satellite systems to receive the many free channels and the Subscription services:
German free channels will include both national and regional channels. The Astra satellite is easily receivable in all parts of the Uk and Europe with fairly basic satellite dish and receivers
I supply HD receivers with optional recording disc, enjoy your familiar Das Erste , ZDF and around 100 free channels from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in German. The signal is strong over the UK and so the dish is not huge, only slightly larger than the common Sky dish.
You can even order the twin tuner satellite receiver, enabling you to record one channel whilst watching another, all in HD quality, Germany broadcasts more HD channels than any other country in Europe. If you have family wanting both English and German, this can easily be arranged too.

Two developments for the dish haters! A dish that you can see through. Placed on a wall , most people passing by will be unaware of this satellite dish, made by metronic , in clear plastic. It is suitable for the German and most of the stronger satellite signals from France, Italy, the Gulf ( Arab channels) Spain or Russia. There are also larger versions available for Turkish channels. When ordering your German channel package installation you can specify a clear dish, email me for full details and prices.
Secondly , how about a dish in disguise? These couldnt be less like a sat dish, and can even be decorated ( or camouflaged ) with patterns like brick or cement to blend in. The Self Sat dish certainly works on the German channel package and can be ordered as ‘flat dish’. Again email me for full details and current price.
The satellite used to broadcast German channels, also carries some Spanish, Polish and French channels, some News channels in English – euronews, CNN, CNBC, BBC world service, Russia today France 24. All are free to watch.
The Manhattan receiver I install can be set up with the channels grouped in Languages , making it very easy to find and watch channels.
The ultimate extension to this is to add a motorised dish, the manhattan receiver will operate this too! This gives many hundreds of channels free to view.
EuroSport as a free channel has disappeared from most European broadcasters, but with German tv its still there!
So for all your Skispringen, Fusball, Kampfsport and Skilanglauf …. tune in!
