Usually I do not give any information on pay-tv channels, but this is a
exception. The only signal reaching your area strong enough to use a
small dish in the Ku-band is the pay-tv service of INDOVISION. This
provider carries all channels you are asking for. I do not know the the
monthly fee, but I think you can subscribe to only a part of the package
(all news channels). Please contact the infoline: 21-581-9988 or go to
The German company Lorenzen Communication offers a small (65cm) dish,
which is portable and even you can fold it to a handy piece
<http://www.lorenzen.de>. Please contact this company in order to get a
useful dealers-adress in your aerea. The LNBF is provided by Lorenzen
and meets the standard for the PALAPA CII-satellite in Ku-band at 113
degr. east.
Since the signal is in MPEG, you will need a suitable digital- receiver.
Usually for INDOVSION the RCA-DSD is used. A dealers adress will be
provided by Indovsion. The installation of the Lorenzen-dish is easy,
because on the platform a compas is integrated. We use this dish in our
live broadcasting of drdish@tv , controllling our own signal and it
takes us 2 minutes for the set-up.
