    Hi, I've recently just moved house again and now I'm in a virgin media only area. What's the best solution available to me? And if anyone wants a blade bm7000s to buy / swap with whatever solution works for me in my current situation, then I'd be willing to trade too.

    Thanks.

    what do you mean .. you are in a "virgin media only area"
    are you deep undergound?
    have you got trees/buildings all around you?
    it's pretty hard to find a place that you can't put a dish for functional use.
    i don't know what your current situation is, but i bet that if you had a blade in the first place, then cable (virgin media) is a poor replacement.
    elaborate more on your situation, maybe people can help.

    I'm renting my house and I'm not able (allowed) to put a dish up.

    To be honest I don't watch too much TV, it just saves me the hassle of using the laptop to stream some football at the weekends.

    if its just the premiership you want then look into getting ADMC.
    there are tutes out there on how to get in this country, costs about £30 for the season.

    I
    It's not just the football (it is for me) but my partner will watch some films and stuff also.

    And I do connect my laptop to the TV if I can be bothered (although usually I'll sit in front of the tv on my laptop at the same time).

    keep your blade
    get a dish which u cud use from inside, they have them in b&q stores,

    stay away from starview,
    krypt maybe free after purchase but alot of freezin and glitching, especialy on live matches, ( i have blade and krypt as backup during stormy weather)

    What about those portable sat dish kits in lidl/aldi etc, you can pop one on the window sill etc.

    stay away from Starviews, just read any recent thread on here
