      I don't believe they will work because they are on a different digital signal. For instance you may get a picture but no sound or vicky vera.

      your tv will work fine it will just need a spanish freeview box or a sky box connected to it. make sure if you go the sky way you have your own dish and not the microwave systems that they offer as they are illegal and will soon be shut down if you want to contact me go to www.dm-digital.co.uk my company cheers dan

      As sat man says they will work fine with a freeview box or a sky dish..........make sure you can get a good signal for sky wherever you are, because it will affect the size of dish you need. Your present sky box if you have one will work fine if the signal is good enough.

      Even if your TV has built in free-view it will still work in Spain...just reprogram the free-view to the region your in.
