Q: Moving shortly to Newcastle (Australia) I would like to watch some
US-channels via satellite. Which size of dish I need to receive ESPN, CNN
and movie channels?
You have to invest in a quite large dish, but donīt need any positioner or
actuator. With a 7m dish (mesh) you can receive via the PALAPA C1 at 113° E
the following free channels:
STAR TV, SITV-Brunei,TV-Indosair,AN-TEVE, CNN, TV3 Mal.,RTM Mal.,CFI France,
MTV Asia, TPI Indonesia, GMA Philipine, SCTC Indon., ABN Singap., ATVI
Australia, RCTI Indon., CNBC.
Pay-channels: ESPN, HBO, TNT/CARTOON.
This channels are only availbale to Indonesians. The yearly charge is US$
480,- and the B-MAC dekoder is sold for around US§ 500,-.(CDE-2000 from
Atlanta-Scientific). You could solve the problem with a adress in Indonesia.
The channels are offered by INDOVISION, Jakarta (Fax.:+62-21 850 8243) ask
for Mr. Pati Loevis. Maybe he finds a solution.
