    Default Canal 4 / Canal 10 - Intelsat 805 (C-Band)

    For anyone that tunes these 2 channels in C-band Satellite..

    Can you let me know here or by PM what your Lat, Long, signal strength and dish size is?

    I am looking at a 6' dish from my calculations and need for some real world results to double check against..

    Thanx

    Well it looks like the time for research has past.

    As of 7:30AM today all of the Univision channels on Galaxy 18 (KU band) went dark. Parrent company (Equity broadcasting) went belly up last fall and has been limping along.. I am guessing the Satellite company pulled the plug.

    Just as a check these are their OTA (Over the Air ) locations..

    Detroit, MI,
    Minneapolis, MN,
    Kansas City, KS,
    Salt Lake City, UT,
    Nashville, TN,
    Jacksonville, FL,
    Oklahoma City, OK,
    Fort Myers / Naples, FL,
    Tulsa, OK,
    Little Rock, AR,
    Syracuse, NY,
    Waco, TX,
    Jackson, MS,
    Ft. Smith / Fayetteville, AR,
    Amarillo, TX,
    Wichita Falls, TX

    Can any one tell if these Univision stations are still broadcasting locally??

    In any case if the (KU) Satellite link does not go back live soon I have to get C band working. Chilo will get in Novela withdrawl within a week and then no one is happy then

    Univision is still broadcasting here in USA. Were you able to get it for free (FTA) in Nicaragua via satellite?

    Univision broadcasting locally, as in a tower and rabbit ears? I've never heard of such a thing. Certainly not here in Hicksville, FL.

    Yes, last 5 yrs over G18..

    Opps -Edit after re-read... Yes get it in Canada.. I was going to try in Nica but never was able to get a KU-dish into one of my sister - in -laws shipments.. But every container has been a disaster anyways so maybe it was better I did not

    Which station are you getting or is a a network feed over cable/Dish/Direct?

    If we unplugged DirecTV, I'm not sure our set would even pick up a broadcast signal! We threw away the rabbit ears.

    BAD SEED SAYS:

    Just check out www.antennaweb.org and enter zip code for the free channels you can receive with decent antenna on roof. I get on cable tv so maybe they are electing to not make it for free in the future.

    What is your location?

    You would have to cash in the $40 FCC coupon for the box

    The boxes themselves were financed by FCC auctions of new spectrum after the Nextel/Public safety debacle of the mid to late 90's. That is where public safety channels had to shuffle to allow Nextel walky talky service to continue..

    I dunno, our TV is only about a year old. It's supposed to be digital ready.

    Then Bunny ears will do.. Little known fact.. HDTV OTA (Over the air) is typically of much better quality than HD delivered via cable or satellite...

    Read in the manual WRT "ATSC" tunner

    Good to know. Was asking user Bill sorry. So can Univision be received 'over the air' I guess is one question and over satellite for free?

    Here's how the conversation went:

    "Dear, did you know there was a local station that broadcasts Univision over the air, if the satellite ever goes out?"

    "I can watch it on the internet."

    So if there are any others on the forum who get their Spanish programming in this way here is the Skinny...

    G18 Univision & Telefutura (33" to 40" KU dish) is gone for good.

    The ones that are left for no cost reception are on C band (the 6' to 10" Big Ugly Dish)

    Galaxy 3
    There is still is some as of today Univision stations on G3, but these stations are owned by Equity and will dissipate probably 30 seconds after your dish is set up..


    Galaxy 17
    KLUZ Albuquerque , Univision

    AMC 18
    Telemundo east and west have feeds here

    Intelsat 1R
    One Telemundo and one Univision in Puerto Rico

    Intelsat 805
    Canal 4 and Canal 10 Nica
    A couple Guatemala and Peru stations with one Honduras.

    We will go with the last one because I will get BBC too and.. Get this (think in your best Jamaican accent now, repeat the CNN intro BUT change it a bit ) This is JNN... The Jamaican news network ... Mon..

    Well the dish (210cm) has been ordered ($219 CDN)

    The LNB is on the way too ($34)

    LNB should be here Thursday and the dish arrives next Tuesday..

    We are sneaking up on 4 days w/no Novellas.. Things are getting tense !!

    We'll keep ya posted..

    Maybe I will swing to old small dish to SatMex 5 or 6 to see if there is something to keep the Mrs's content for the time being..

    La Baby Doc got her novelas off of some torrent site before I finally broke down and bought a TV (man I hate that infernal machine). Just a suggestion, but say goodbye to your bandwidth if she finds out. The only thing I hate more than TV is no bandwidth.
