Digital satellite television is created when a broadcast centre broadcasts a digital signal to a geostationary satellite, an earth-orbiting satellite placed at an altitude of approximately 35000km directly above the Equator, which revolves in the same direction as that in which the earth rotates, west to east. This satellite sends a signal back to earth, and this is picked up by your satellite dish, converted to a television picture by a receiver, and then displayed on your television screen.

So your satellite dish acts as a collector and reflector, collecting the signal and reflecting it to a feedhorn, which in turn sends the signal to the LNB, the “arm” you see mounted on your satellite dish. This amplifies the signal and converts it to a frequency suitable for transmission by a cable, known as an IFL, which transmits the signal to the satellite receiver which then sends it to your television set. Satellite television is encoded digitally, so the broadcaster can offer multiple television channels using the same amount of satellite bandwidth.

Obviously this sophisticated and complicated technology requires expert installation. We are a satellite television installation company which can offer you installations, repairs and upgrades, configuration and tuning of DSTV, as well as advice on choosing the correct television equipment to suit your unique needs, whether domestic or commercial.
