Re: Sky News on Sky

Well, the Irish stream disappeared this morning but now found both the English & Irish stream 1 channel apart. Do a scan and flick through the channels, boring, yes but should have time on your hands at the moment!

Re: Sky News on Sky

Try a rescan and you should pick it up but I guess it depends on your arrangement, I have 2 LNB on my dish. My sat receiver is built into the TV and picking up the Irish stream with no problem but I have lost the English stream like others. To be honest, if you have the internet, much better to stre...

Re: Sky News on Sky

You can still get the Irish stream of Sky News, exactly the same but with Irish adverts!

Re: Cost of getting temporary plates to export a car

I did the UK-Crete trip in a car back in 2013 and posted a detailed account of the journey on this forum. For ease of reference, I have copied it below. I did the journey in reverse 3 years ago with a friend who moved back to the UK with a Greek registered vehicle, he then registered it in the UK. I...

Re: Piraeus Bank ATM Withdrawal Charge

This may be worth a look if you have a UK address https://www.starlingbank.com/travel/ Don't know if the local banks will apply the charges mentioned in the various posts but worth a try. The lock card function could also be useful and it would seem it is very good to use all over the world along wi...

Re: Vietnamese Rice Paper Wraps

I agree with Filippos, Toku just up from the square in Kalyves stock a wide range of Far Eastern products and a lovely, helpful couple who run it. Have a look in the freezer at the rear of the shop, I am sure you will find them there, if not the rice paper specifically, I know they always have the f...

Re: Parcelforce to Crete

In our experience, parcels sent using Parcelforce arrive in Athens normally within 48-72 Hours, after that, quite often it can take around 10 days to get from Athens sent by priority or not. Never lost one yet (touch wood) but it does take time for some reason on the Athens to Crete leg.

Re: Oil central heating

Why don't you look at buying in the UK if readily available and ship it over using Nomad? A friend of mine did just that, radiators also at a saving of well over 1,000€ compared to prices here, including shipping costs.

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

They definitely take vans, I know someone who does Crete-UK-Crete in a LWB van at least 2-3 times a year with no problem, don't know the cost though but Ancona-Patras is not cheap for a car. As others have said, best to email the ferry companies.

[quote]Has anyone tried driving all the way i.e. through Austria, Hungary, Serbia and Bulgaria to mainland Greece then just ferry over to the island?[/quote]

I know someone who has done this but would strongly advise against it, big, big corruption and problems in Albania. Say no more.

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

I posted a detailed route 5 years ago, did the journey in reverse Crete to UK last March with just one difference, went through Switzerland instead of Austria, only difference was you have to pay your road tax at the Italy/Swiss border which was a bit of hassle, you should buy it before the border a...

Re: Mobdro

You cannot load Mobdro onto a Samsung TV, there are only a handful of Android compatible TV's out there at the moment, LG and, I think, Sony that you can side load additional apps onto. The easiest way to do this is to buy an Android streaming box and this effectively makes any TV a "smart TV&q...
