English language television

There are 7 ways to get English TV

1. Terrestrial channels - buy a receiver from Amazon and plug it into the wall and you’ll get CNN and a bunch of German channels

German Sky has some options for English but it’s fairly limited.

2. Sat Dish

There are two options here.

Find a Sat dish installer who knows how to access the UK channels - this will be BBC ITV and Channel 4 and 5

3. German based Streaming services


Can be accessed via your PC iPad smart phone and Smart TV. Not all of the content on Amazon is English but the main shows are.

4. UK Streaming Services

Requires a VPN or smart DNS and for the most part works without an issue.

5. US Streaming Services

Hulu - requires a VPN or Smart DNS plus a US credit card.www.usunlocked.com is a good option. Note the US version of Netflixs can be difficult to access.

6. Kodi Boxes

If you’re technically inclined you can get a Kodi box or Raspberry Pi and stream for free to your heart’s content.


This is the best option if you want Sky TV but can’t put up a dish. The box costs around 200€ plus a monthly fee. This is one I know of, there are others. If you know of a good one please update this or else ask in the fourm

SE Andriod Systems

The system takes a bit to figure out but it’s true stunning HD quality so it's well worth the bit of effort it takes. Also offers a video club via Kodi (I believe)
