IDF Exclusive : Tune STB to receive additional FTA channels
Advertisement
#1
I was wondering if it is possible to tune STB or the antenna to receive some of the free channels that are not included in my package... If so, can someone explain how? or is there an existing guide that I can refer to?

Regards,
Sri Harsha.

With the existing Dish tv or private dth stb, it is not possible to receive free channels as the stb software is locked from saving fta channels. You will have to get a FTA stb to receive those channels.

Browse through IndianDTH Satellite Receiving section and you will find lots of information and setup guides.

Thanks... Would you have an idea of how much would it cost or any links for that? Will these setup guides help me build it from scratch?

Also, I have a couple of more questions...

  1. If we use our own STB, can we subscribe for paid channels by any means?
  2. If not, what if the FTA channels now turn paid ones later?
  3. Is there a guide or reference which gives the basics of satellites, STBs and this whole DTH thing?

Appreciate your help!
