PostSubject: Bulsat   Mon Apr 14, 2014 5:02 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hi Guys

Need a litlle feedback please. I went the Bulsat office and asked for the full package which has English channels - they said yes there are many English channels and films bu the total package is 28lev per onth, so I said ok we will have the package The engnieers came out took off the satillite dish and put up bulsat - then it tested but all the progrmmes were in Bulgarian I said to the engineer where are the English channels he said no English channels maybe HBO is in english some films he proceeded to go through the channels and found about 4 dscovery, science and news. I told him I did not want this unless ther are english channels he rang the office as he said I needed another dish to pick up and the cost would be more. The chap in the office spoke english and he said even if I get the other satalite dish I will sill only have about 4 channels and only HBO film So naturally I declined the contract. How come people say they get lots o english channels on bulsat and we can only get 4 which is not mch good and not worth paying 28lev a month. We paid £75 for the sat dish only to find out all we could get on that was news. so led up the garden path there.

Ah here we go again!! my moan for today

We have no tv now for 7 days the satilliite has no signal tried everything but nothing works. So had to call the engineer out the checked on his machine and there was a signal so it turns out we have to get the received fixed this is the 3rd box we hve had so far. He charged me 10lev for petrol and 10lev for his time - He took the box away for repair said about 25 to 40lev and no doubt petrol and his time again another 20lev so a possible total o 80lev to repair - plus when he came about a month or so ago he charged 15lev total payout is 95lev we the dish and received cost us 140lev so looks like I could have bought a bigger dish at the money I am paying hiim and his visits appear to be regular now. I think this is a nice little earner for him! If it goes again than we will have to consider the basic bulsat. Feel a little let down now as am finding things are not so good when we want something done, the villagers are find it's just outsiders, they seem to see lev signs when we want something done and when I question it they say this is Bulgaria normal here. Maybe I need to take a course and learn technical stuff

Our Internet coverage is bad enough, but yours seems to be even worse Berni. With all this money you are spending have you considered satellite internet? The service is provided by Vivacom of course, but the installation costs are very high at around a 1000 Leva for the equipment and installation. The cheapest monthly rental if my memory serves me correct is in the region of 29 Euros. Expensive, but will always be there and working. Unfortunately, that price is out of our bracket, so not looking for it personally.


Yes and 399le a month wth no gtds it will work. If it works lke the TV satallite thank back to square one. Will have to wait and see if cabale does come to the villages like the mayor said. ::

BG boasts to have the third fastest Internet service in the world and for some of us living here that is true. Unfortunately, if we decide to live in a quaint village there is nothing fast about the servive provided here. By EU law every country in the EU has to have so many mb per second by the year 2020, at the current rate of inhancement I can't see that happening for one moment I am afraid. Like yourself, we have to suffer with a 2G service like many others, Pavlikeni has 3G and Gorna has 4G, aren't they lucky?

Yes, poor oddy, she only gets Internet on 'good' days - if anyone on the Forum has a good internet service xbmc is the thing to get. All BBC channels, all ITV channels, Sky for nothing and goodness knows how many other channels, 3800 films on there ready to be seen. You MUST have a good internet service, xbmc is available on Ebay for around 80 pounds and is totally legal.
