It's third post in 7 days, I didn't know moving to larger house raises so many questions... anyway,

My wife asked that whether she could watch certain channel from satellite, so I google the web for a while and I found that;

1. The satellite is called Palapa C2 & Koreasat 5 at 113.0°E (

2. Beam coverage of the channel she want to watch is well outside of NZ.

In that case, is there anyway that she may watch the channel?

Furthermore, Is it possible to merge two satellite dish signals into one cable and retrive to each other decoder?

BTW Is there any website have list of FTA channels can viewed in NZ?


Happy new year!

Shin, apsattv as mentioned by sbiddle is a excellent resource. However I fear that PalapaC2 is not going to work here, you are going to need a significant C-Band dish to see it. What program were you looking for, it may infact be carried elsewhere.

And finally, yes it is possible to use a multiswitch and combine two or three dish LNBs, and split, infact such switches normally allow either both pols off two dishes, or four dishes, and have anywhere from 4 to 16outputs to individual STB's. Switches range from $150 to $300 depending on input and output complexity.
