Hello,

In my building, there is no toya box, so I am unable to get internet - is it possible that I may get internet through any other service provider ?

Thanks

Ask your building's administrator what other internet service providers have installation in your building and then take their offers.

You must check if any channel from India is accessible via one of the satellites covering Europe. Then if you don't need Polish channels, just buy an FTA tuner and a private dish.

There might be some restrictions on installing a satellite dish on the building wall or on the roof (but, at least in theory, the administrator cannot prohibit to install it somewhere, they can only give restrictions). There may be also a common aerial installation for all the flats. In the last case the available satellites are usually Hot Bird and Astra.

channel from India

They might be available on your platform or they might not. The kind of service you get in apartment buildings might not have them. You'd need to know what satellite you're receiving signals from then check online if there are any Indian channels on that. If you can't find out that way, members of the Indian Cultural Association in Warsaw might be able to advise. Otherwise, your only option is streaming online TV and there are certainly Indian channels in various languages available online.

If you can find some channels you are interested in on this list (as I can see there are some channels from India there):

lyngsat.com/Eutelsat-28A-and-Astra-1N-2A-2F.html

it is marked by yellow or blue background and don't have "UK" in the "beam" column - you will get them in Poland by sat. TV.

Buy a satellite tuner (if a channel is marked as MPEG4 or DVB-S2 it should be an HD tuner) and an 80 cm diameter dish. It has to be set to the 28.2 deg. E position, which is not typical for Poland.
