Anyone know if this satellite is still working ?

And if it is any recommendation for someone in Eastern Algarve who knows what they are doing and could quote for installation ?

Its definitely still working but how long it continues to do so is completely random. The satellite itself is approaching end of life and will have very little fuel left. The feed is used as a backup in the UK but the world is changing and this is old tech now - we are moving back to direct physical connection via Fibre.

I wouldn't spend too much on installation as the Satellite feeds could go off in an hour, a week, a month or a fresh layer of encryption could be added that would block completely.

If you have reasonable speed internet then I would also take a look at IPTV boxes like MAG 322 which are £60 on Ebay and will give you a lot more channels.
