French Domestic TV Par Satellite

MyFrench friend wanted to know how to continue receiving French Satellite TV after November 2011, when existing channels on the satellites at 5W will be switched off.  Basically they are going to an MPEG4-related broadcast format, requiring a new generation of digital receiver.

The “least headache” solution we went for was a package and receiver called Fransat, which is available at Darty stores in France.  Ironic name, given the main channel we want to watch is Arte.

Seulement for posterity, some links I found along the way are listed below:
