Tech Talk- IS19 – and those Aussie channels


Intelsat 19 is becoming the new hotbird over NZ and Australia. There has been a number of good channels come and go on both C and Ku band over the last couple of years.

Some of those channels have gone to other satellite, and others have encrypted.

Of interest currently is a channel Nine mux from Australia


The Frequency for the 9 Mux

This mux although free to air, is a challenge to receive due to the new 16apsk modulation. At present, very few receivers on the market are able to resolve pictures due to the new modulation. In saying that the X Cruiser 385, AND the newer UltraPlus x1000HD+ are two of the few that can. Available here 

Even the 9 Sydney, originally on Optus D1 has been moved over to IS19.

Also on this satellite Free to air:

France 24         Website     ENGLISH

Euronews         Website     ENGLISH

Airirang TV     Website      ENGLISH

There are European and East European channels also available on the small dish from I.S 19.  You may like to look at our satellite package page to see the full range of options.

The beauty of having various dishes at various satellites is that programs come and go, and every now and then you get a good run of a descent channel or 2, some of which are well worth watching.

So in reality, if you combine what’s available on Internet TV and Free to air satellite, there are is a good deal of content available free.
