About Us

The website was initially founded to help people with satellite TV news, help, discussion, but has developed in to a UK based IPTV service for members only.

This website was kept online in honor of my Uncle Robert, the founder of Rob's Satellite TV. A popular site on which Rob spent a lot of time informing people of new happenings in the world of Satellite TV.

Unfortunately Rob died aged just 49! Leaving behind his "creation" and many people disappointed that there would be no further predictions and accurate satellite info from him. Therefore I (a relative of Rob) decided to keep the site going, I had his login details as I was going to create a new site for him.

Rob was quite knowledgeable and used to make "predictions" on what was happening in the European area with the Eutelsat and Astra satellites, often surprising people when he was correct (which was usually), and sometimes he even seemed to know more than Astra themselves. Whether you liked him or not, (Rob fell out with a few people, usually due to them arguing with him saying that Rob was wrong, only for themselves to be proved wrong when Rob's "crazy" prediction turned out to be right!) you can't argue that his site was a very valuable source of information, along with a distinct lack of modesty, using copyrighted pics from everywhere else but complaining against those who copied his stuff, and his "quirky" sense of humour, all made it a very unique site indeed!

Rob's work continued on the site from users sharing information on the forums, informing each other of reception reports for satellites in different areas of Europe, and helping other satellite users with any questions or difficulties they may have. Unfortunately my real life took over and I wasn't able to do as much work on the site as I hoped, people do not use the forums much any longer. But I am hoping that with the new IPTV service set up, people can use the forums to discuss TV situation in their local countries. Please‚ apply to become a member‚ and join the community.

Original Welcome Message:

Hi, Hello, and a warm Welcome to you from "Rob's Satellite TV"

"Rob's Satellite TV" is here to help you the satellite viewer (and satellite equipment installer) to navigate your way around the satellite television and radio maze. And it can be a maze with all sorts of confusing, conflicting and just plain downright incorrect information being given. These are some of the reasons why this website‚ was initially set up and hence this website was born. "Rob's" has time and time again been proven to be the "World Leader" with all the big and exclusive satellite news. This has been especially true regarding the UK specific satellites because "Rob's Satellite TV" was and is the one and only consistently correct and consistently exclusive satellite news website regarding these UK specific satellites.

"Rob's Satellite TV", telling it like it actually is before it actually is!

  1. Great work Paul,

    I’am sure we are all here to help & keep this great site going…

    Regards

  2. I would like to contribute to this forum as I have found the information very helpful and unlike other forums, people asking questions don’t get flamed. However I cannot find the contribute button. I feel this should be a very obvious button, to help Paul with the inevitable expenses of buying bandwidth and running the site.

    1. Hi Wilson.I removed the button just earlier today, as I was rearranging the site. I have put it back now on the left side menu. Thank you for your feedback and support 🙂

  3. Hi Paul.
    You are doing a great job but just one problem.
    The print color on the forum pages is so weak its very hard to read, any chance of it being darkened somewhat.
    Thanks
    Bryan

    1. Hi Bryan. You are right, it needs changing. I have been meaning to change lots of the colour scheme but it took a lower priority as the site was not working very well a lot of the time and that took my attention.

      Unfortunately I just took a full time position in a volunteer role 🙁 and that is leaving me not much time for web design.

      I will have a quick look now but if it has not changed by the time you read this then bear with me, it isn’t as easy as I would like to change the colour scheme, I dont have very good web development / CSS knowledge and that’s what it requires to change it 🙁

      Thanks for the feedback

  4. Found your site after the demise of Filmon.tv.
    I live in Austria where the TV programmes are …. somewhat disappointing. There are exceptions, the dubbed MASH is so strange as they have totally wrong tones of voice.
    Your site is just the thing, and I’m quite happy with the resolution as I don’t have a big TV!
    I’ll send a donation on pension day, you deserve to gain funding.
    All the very best for the future.
    It seems to me that greed has killed off sites like Filmon.

  5. Tried earlier on today to join you but unsuccessfully.
    I have a Film On box which is working perfectly and in the bedroom a minix which has now stopped receiving the Film On programmes much to my annoyance. I don’t mind making a small contribution but out of my pension, a limited one, and tried unsuccessfully to restart my old Paypal account to enable me to do this.
    Things seem to change very quickly as I have had a break for a few hours to discover, on re-entering your name, what appears to be a totally different site – other than the name!
    I live in Cyprus and have to utilise the computer to get any British TV programmes via a proxy server and would like to join you, other than on level 0 (82.102.100.210). Please advise as soon as possible the most beneficial way to proceed.
    Robert (rob.taylor669@gmail.com.cy)

  6. How do I donate? struggling to get a donation to you. I have registered, what now? Love the site, appreciate the hard work involved.
