    I’ve returned to my home country of Scotland after spending 3 years in SP. My Brazilian in-laws and other members of the family are coming to visit my wife and I in a few months – they speak NO English and like many Brazilians, they adore Brazilian TV Smile. We’re already stressed about what to do with them LOL, but we know we must at least make them feel at home with some Brazilian TV when in the UK. Anyway, I know there’s a method of getting Globo TV through a satellite box but it’s not cheap and as far as I can tell, it’s only Globo.
    My question is, does anyone know of a method of obtaining Brazilian TV channels for FREE/little money? It can be through the internet since I’ve an internet TV. I heard about SopCast but I have no idea about such websites. Has anyone tried it or know of a method of watching Brazilian channels in the UK? Many thanks for any and all help.

    There is a channel called Record TV. It is on the Astra satellite at 28 degrees. If you have a Sky box or Freesat box you can get it clear.
    Loads of the usual telenovela crap like A Escrava Isaura and Os Mutantes plus news, game shows (show do Tom) etc.

    Record is 801 on sky. U don’t need a full package just the basic. They run the novelas all night! Lot of religious stuff there too to get their “deus” fx. Good luck

    Did your in-laws also arrange International TV when you arrived in Brazil, or did they torture you with their novelas just like all of us?

    Well Pat1nho, you are in luck.

    If you have a satellite installer in the local area, they may be able to assist.
    I had a system installed by a Portuguese guy, they watch Globo as well, albeit Globo International.
    The system consists of a digital receiver, mine is an Echolink EL-888 FTA Super+, with a dish thiink its about 900mm – 1m. The receiver needs to be loaded with the relevant software, ie Europe. The satellite used for Globo is Hotbird 1/2/3/4/6. You can install all this yourself, if you are technically minded.
    The signal from Globo used to be scrambled on a regular basis, but they don’t bother doing now.
    Any further info, you will prob need to PM me

    You can get Hotbird with a small dish and a basic satellite receiver, it is at 13 degrees east. Aldi were doing a complete kit for under £50.
    There are many hundreds of channels there but only about a dozen in Portuguese and half these are encrypted. TV Globo is Nagravision so anything interesting is encrypted.
    If you are going to buy a satellite system a cheap one could get you both Hotbird and Astra, you would just have to move the dish around.
