I read somewhere that if you take an English free to air digibox to Spain and plug it in it will tune in to Spanish digital signal.Anybody tried it?

If you take an English “FREEVIEW” box to spain it will pick up the free Spanish digital channels through your tv aerial.
Providing of course that you can receive a good enough signal.
Where I am the terrestrial signal is poor and I even had to fit a amplifier to my aerial to receive the main Spanish analog channels TVE, A3 & Tele cinco etc.
But when I tried with a free view box, these channels kept breaking up on the digital signal, and other channels such as La sexta would not open at all.
However if you mean using a free to view “sky” digi box” These really are only any use for Sky due to the very restricted symbol rates embeded in them.
You would be better off buying a cheap free to air satellite receiver (not sky) pointing a dish at either 19.2 east or 30 west and you will get loads of free Spanish channels.
