Tell your friend in France he should order the card under his own name and
adress and saying nothing about Danmark. This will be solve the problem. If
the program-provider split the united Europe again in little pieces and
parts in the sky, lets do the opposite and try to help each other. No
problem to receive the superbeam of EUTELSAT in Danmark. A 90cm dish will do
fine. I advice this larger size, in case you would like to make it turnable,
to have a wider choice of programs and satellites.
TPS uses the VIACCESS-system and your friend should buy the proper receiver
(XCom 200 or equivalent) and send it to you together with the card. The
upcoming model of NOKIA with the Common Interface will also accpet the
Viaccess-card and this receiver allows you to receive Free to Air programs
from different countries.
