Since winter, we had been suffering from poor TV reception. It became so frustrating that we invited the local TV company to have a look at our equipment and connection. They advised that our old equipment had perished and that the satellite for British TV had been moved. We needed to replace our equipment and realign it with the satellite's new position. We asked them to do the work as soon as possible and they returned within days with a van full of TV reception gear. We also took the opportunity to install a second dish which would give us Italian TV. So now we have clear, high definition TV reception from two countries...perfect for learning Italian and watching the Giro d'Italia as well as relaxing!
