H2S Setup for Greece

Probably a bit out of leftfield this one but can anyone advise on whether or not a Zgemma H2S would work in Greece? There's a dish in the apartment so I presume I'd need to find out which satellite it points at to begin with? What about a line?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers
 
Im running the zgemma h2s box in Mallorca, its working perfectly. Ive a 1.8 metre dish pointing 28.2 e and it works a treat. The only channels we dont pick up are all the hd itvs and channel 4 hd, but we can get the standard definition version of those.

Thanks for the replies.

I take it they're just the same lines as you would use in the UK then?

To get a signal in Greece you will need a much larger dish than what most folk in Spain have 1.5 - 1.8 m dishes. I'm pretty sure that to pick up a signal in Greece your rooftop would resemble something out of NASA

"A 3.5m satellite dish may provide reception of Sky Digital, although results are uncertain and unpredictable given that Greece is on the edge of the Astra 28.2E satellite footprint"

Had a 1.8m dish in Turkey and all worked well until the footprint shrinkage, IPTV is the service needed for Greece IMHO
