Lidl will be stocking Portable Satellite systems;

Seems like a very good price. Unfortunately it will only pick up Free
To Air channels, not subscription ones.

I know that it'd pick up all the BBC ones but not sure which others.

depends on the adjustment of your dish.
YouŽll hav e choice of (maybe) 15 different satellites (or more).

So not ITV1, ITV2, Channel 4, 5

and no UK History.

But the rest seems to be an improvement on the "Here is a fuzzy BBC1 and
that's your lot" that we usually have to put up with. ;-(
