Loosing RTL4,5, SBS6 and Veronica?

>Questions:  Hello, I don't know if you can help me, or perhaps you can

Dr. Dish:
No idea to question 1, but one of our readers could have the right answer.

2): Yes, all this channels will stop analogue transmission next month. To 
receive this signals you will need the dutch multichoice package. This means 
a digital receiver from Echostar or Pace, the correct Conditional Access 
Module and a Viewing Card. All this is only available to the dutch viewer. 
So, you will need some friend or relative in the Netherlands who could order 
this equipment and give it to you. The channles are free of charge.
