INSTALLING YOUR EQUIPMENT

  • All you need is one single satellite dish fitted with a 'universal LNB'- type reception head which is available in retail shops (supermarket, DIY store, etc.). The recommended dish size depends on where you are located in the satellite coverage area.
  • The dish must be directed towards the Hotbird position, at 13° East. A professional installer can help you choose the right dish and can assist with installation.
  • Connect to a satellite receiver for free-to-air channels (DVB-S or DVB-S2 compatible), or a television with an integrated satellite tuner.
  • An standard definition (SD) receiver is sufficient for most channels. However, we recommend a High definition (HD) HD receiver so that you can also benefit from the HD offer broadcast by the satellite.
  • Follow your receiver's user instructions to install the free-to-air TV channels.
