To receive English TV channels is it just a satellite dish needed, or also a monthly charge.

Mine is through a satellite dish, no monthly charge. Fit a dish as big as you can for better reception.

Thanks, not in Los Narejos yet because of restrictions,the property I have bought has a small dish on the roof terrace, might need to replace it for a bigger one. Any recommendations on satellite installers in the area?

I found this advertisement for satellite dish:

https://www.satellitesdirect.net/dishes.html

When you say it’s a small dish it’s probably for the German TV

We are using Wi-Fi, no dish needed. The box is called Max250. The connection is provided by the president of our community.

As your Internet provider who he recommends.

The people who did mine have stopped doing them. Recommended dish size minimum 1.8m.

Get an IPTV box and watch TV through the Internet. We've been doing this for years and get all the normal UK channels, sports, documentaries, movies and box-sets, plus 14 day catch-up. We do pay a yearly fee to our supplier but feel that it's worth every centimo, especially since the lockdown has stopped us from going out that often.

I assume you have a router with your internet provider and unlimited broadband?
