do we need any cables?
Ariel might be useful for washing clothes but for Greek terrestrial TV you'll need an aerial.
Dependent on your TV, you might require a Greek "decoder" box as well. (Apo-kotheeko-pee-ee-tees.)
If anyone needs coaxial cable, I have some really high quality (very low loss) WF100 cable from the UK, which guarantees the best possible signal (and the plugs to fit).
I don't have much to add to previous suggestions except that our broadband speed is quite slow (3MB/s), which is borderline for streaming TV. Consequently, for the little TV that we watch, we use Get iPlayer Automator to download BBC and ITV "player" programmes. I also use an MP4 downloader "plugin" with "Firefox" web browser for getting YouTube programmes. I also use BitTorrent software and a VPN. A lot of people use "Kodi" software for streaming TV.
Obviously the programme providers don't like anyone to use these methods, since they think it represents a loss of revenue. Consequently, they do try to block it from time to time. I believe that the "black boxes" using "Kodi" have just suffered some sort of blocking, this month.
I do have a 1.2m satellite dish that can receive Arabic programmes from the BADR satellite at 26°E. There are some good movies (with Arabic subtitle squiggles) but, unfortunately, the movies are censored for anything approaching sexual content - even a kiss. So they often lose the plot in the process.
It's worth mentioning that the Greek TV licence fee is included with your electricity bill.
I think that, between us, we've covered most possibilities. So, Gillian, you might like to acknowledge our replies. I notice the last time you looked was March 31st.
