    Unhappy No NOW TV, What else?

    Hello

    I know there are already plenty of threads on cable TV but I couldn't find what I was looking for amongst old discussions.

    I have recently moved to HK and have gone to PCCW and subscribed to Netvigator Broadband and installed a fixed tel phone. We were only told then that our building has no NOW TV reception.

    I am keen to have cable TV in my home to watch the usual international news and French TV5. Can someone advise me which other companies I can try? Otherwise I might end up not having any TV at home at all, as the local channels do not interest me.

    thanks!

    The only other legal alternative is CableTV, but as far as I can see from their channel lineup at http://www.cabletv.com.hk/cs_si.htm they don't carry TV5 (although they do carry German, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese & Korean channels!)

    Tv5

    For French TV5 in HK you have 2 choice: Now TV or Satelitte: Check http://www.tv5.org/TV5Site/reception/dans_le_monde.php

    Pour la chines r?ception directe par satellite
    R?ception num?rique en clair
    Satellite : Asiasat 3S (cliquez pour voir l'empreinte)
    Type : Num?rique
    Transpondeur : 10B
    Fr?quence : 3760
    Polarisation : Horizontale
    Symbol rate : 26000
    FEC : 7/8
    SID : 12
    V-PID : 1120

    Depending on you building managment & orientation you can or instaure a private dish or use the building one + add the Tv5 option.
    Bon courage and bonne TV
