Sky TV channels in North Cyprus

Post by Admin » Tue Feb 27, 2018 7:21 pm

Travelling around North Cyprus, residents/visitors may notice large, 4.2m+ satellite dishes dotted about the place. There used to be many more of these when it was possible to receive Sky TV channels in North Cyprus. It was unfortunate for the people who invested in these large dish, satellite TV systems, when in 2014, several changes to the satellites that Sky use to deliver the channels to the UK, resulted in the gradual, but complete loss of Sky channels in North Cyprus. Previous fringe reception was possible with a large dish, but when Sky channels switched to new satellites with narrower beams and tighter signal footprints on the UK, even the massive 4.2m dishes could no longer gather enough signal to make it possible to watch Sky TV by satellite in North Cyprus.

Of course, there are various other ways to watch Sky TV in North Cyprus, as well as other Middle Eastern based satellite TV broadcasters who supply similar TV systems to that of Sky. OSN for example, who supply a similar English speaking channel line-up to Sky which includes Sky News.

beIN Sports supplies a satellite based TV system to the Middle East that includes what may be the World's best sports coverage, including English Premier League football and a host of other football leagues and tournaments, including the World Cup finals.

A good alternative to Sky TV in North Cyprus is Orbit Showtime Network (OSN) which is a Middle East and North African satellite TV broadcaster based in Dubai. Broadcasting 150+ channels (50+ in High Definition) OSN brings live sporting events and various TV shows from major networks and studios - a full list of the channels and TV packages is available from http://www.satellitecyprus.net/osn_cyprus/

OSN carries much of the same content as Sky TV. Broadcast in English language, the channels include great content from the BBC, ITV and Sky TV. Customers can choose from an array of TV channel groups and tailor their subscription to suit their viewing preferences. Viewers who do not follow sports for example, do not need to include the sports group of channels in their subscription. In other words, customers only need to pay for the channels in the genres that interest them.

North Cyprus falls within OSN's signal footprint from the Nilesat satellite and reception in North Cyprus is good. OSN is, like many other brands and products in North Cyprus, supplied using grey market channels, but this is not an illegal IPTV system. Customers can obtain OSN satellite subscription packages on genuine OSN receivers for which OSN are being paid. This is a 1080p High Definition satellite TV system, not to be confused, or compared with the lower quality IPTV packages that are available on the Android operating system and most importantly, receiving the OSN signal does not rely on the internet, so there is absolutely none of the 'buffering' issues that are associated with internet TV.

Various viewing options are available for example, live TV can be freeze framed, fast forwarded etc. and different channels can be watched and recorded simultaneously.
