A quick guide to English language TV in France

The best way to receive  english language TV in France is to set up a satellite dish. Whilst the dish size for Paris and the Northern part of France is very small (45 – 50 cm) further down in the South you will need a larger dish of  110 to 125 cm. You can get all the BBC channels, ITV, channel 4, five, Sky sports etc. The solution is either taking your existing satellite digital box with you to France, or buying both the equipment and installation from a specialised dealer in France.
