The list below is a list of popular satellites which can be received in the UK. We have also given an idea of the size of Satellite Dish needed to watch and listen to programmes from that satellite including the various languages that are broadcasted.

Satellite Dish sizes are split into North and South.

North are all towns/cities in the North of England and Scotland including the Scottish highlands.

South are all towns/cities in the South East and South of England.
