Yes. We took TV from home that we didn’t use here. It had to be retuned and we did already have satellite connection and free view box. Sure others will provide more infor

Your UK smart TV will work fine in Spain but be aware that it will only pick up Spanish digital channels from the aerial, and not UK ones.

For UK channels you will either need a satellite dish and box connected to the TV or, if your internet provider has UK TV channels as part of a package, you can use them.

Beware of anyone who will try and sell you IPTV as it's unreliable and usually uses illegal feeds.

Tammie, when you arrive with your TV  either change the UK plug for preferably an " F" type Euro one or bring a " UK to Euro " adaptor, choose one that has the C.E. safety mark on it , connect it up and you are good to go.

For TV reception, as per Ray D advice, above.

Nevertheless RayD's last paragraph, I perfectly agree that no one should pay for IPTV. Browse the interent to get free IPTV players and even pay-tv channels for free. What is illegal wherever, must not be necessarily in Spain, where there is a different interpretation of what is where and when lawful or not. So far nobody has been sentenced for streaming whatever. A VPN - as long as it's free might be a useful add-on. Remember: this is a free country, and whoever doesn't want to be free, will be obliged to be free.
