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 a relative of mine, 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 at a young age, leaving behind his "creation" and many people disappointed that there would be no further predictions and accurate satellite info from him. Therefore I decided to keep the site going, I had his login details as I was going to create a new website 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. I am now concentrating on IPTV and helping people to get free-to-air (freeview, freesat) broadcasts around the world. People still use the forums to discuss UK TV and receiving it in their local countries.
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!
