Recommended Posts

Family - Boomerang, Disney Channel

Music - TMF

Add the History channel to those, and that would complete my list of wanted channels :blink: Though Sci-Fi would be good too...

I wouldn't worry about Sci-Fi channel Oz. It's a pale version of the original US version with none of the premier content and more like an extension of sister channel TV1. I also suspect it's locked up in an exclusive arrangement with Foxtel and Austar for a while.

I'd like History, or Disc Military Channel or even The Pentagon Channel. SKY RACING now loads (no pics yet) and is part of the $29.95/month basic 'Great TV' package.

You can add additional FTA channels to your Select TV service by using one of these dishes, that are 'fixed', not motorised!! This is best done (but not impossible) if you choose to buy a non provider decoder instead!

A Torroidal 90 - this allows reception of key Ku band sats servicing AUS/NZ: (Recommended, I use one, see this Ebay)

Or see Page 8 of this 1.4mb Pdf for an 85cm unit that will do 3 sats:

To an existing 85cm dish, you can add a 3-way LNB holder such as these examples to achieve the same:

Key channels in full English, and FTA, you can install for on the one single dish would then be;

Russia Today on Optus B3.

Arirang TV South Korea on Intelsat 2.

ABC/SBS for all states and Imparja TV on Optus D1 (good pic quality).

AlJazeera International/TVSN/EXPO on Optus C1 (the sat used by Foxtel/Austar).

I am hoping NASA TV will eventuate on an Aussie beam one day from NSS5, the T90 will be suited to that.

The satellite Optus B3 has much more than Russia Today too, IF you have kids, and want safe (albiet Christian in source) content, see 'Smile Of A Child TV":

Russia Today (good viewing).
