Re: Sky may just be coming back to Europe

Sky launched new satellites with a beam that was more concentrated on the UK , hence we could no longer receive it here in CY .

Re: Now TV box

I use a Linksys WRT54G router . As you are with holitech you might not need one . I found this on the holitec site , you might want to contact them and ask if the Nowtv box will work on their system . You cannot directly watch UK services via BBC i-player as our IP address is listed as outside the U...

Re: Now TV box

Yes they will work , but you need a VPN or DNS . As you can not install one into the box and cyta routers are virtually impossible to install on . You will need a second router , which is what I do . Very happy with it .

I do not know about holitech .

Did parliament have to vote to get us into the EU ? If not it does not appear correct that they have to vote to get us out .

Re: Receiving your pension in Cyprus

Have the rules changed ? I thought that if you were not eligible for tax in Cyprus, no return was necessary. My income was less than the Cypriot allowance and I never filled in a return. Jackie Did you ever register at the tax office ? My wife was getting taxed on her pension in the UK when we firs...

Re: Receiving your pension in Cyprus

To get the UK tax code "NT" you must be a non-resident in UK; you get this by applying to be eligible for the Double Taxation Agreement between UK and Cyprus.

Re: Sat Nav

If you have a smart phone you can get a free sat nav app and have a play before you go back to the UK .

I use an app called "Be On Road " and it works well for me here in Cyprus .
