Hello,
I have just bought a Transonic UHF Digital Receiver TC2884STB.
It seems that I am not able to get the Korean channels like SBS..
I tried Auto search but it doesn't seem to access the channels. I am in an apartment so I have no access to Satellites..
Any help? or any frequencies I should check??

Thanks

One would think you would tell us where your antenna points.




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

Hi, I am in an apartment so I am not sure where the antenna points... I just plugged the cable from the wall to the Freeview receiver.. Would I need to buy an indoor antenna???

You are probably trying to find channels that aren't part of the Freeview set but may be seen via satellite but not UHF.

Yes. SBS (the Korean channel) is not part of Freeview. So, do I need to purchase a Satellite receiver? Is there a certain frequency I should tune into?
What about an indoor satellite? Thanks

SBS - can you get it here?

No, you don't need an indoor aerial. You are renting so get your landlord/property manager to sort it as there will likely only be one aerial for the building. 

I am still waiting on channels 3 and 4 (mediaworks stations) to get sorted in my apartment building. It is taking quite some time. I thought it odd because TVNZ and Prime are clear (I assume they are on the same mux). Had thought it may be my receiver but neighbours have the same issue.

Different SBS... Freeview approved TVs can't usually get these channels  as they're not on a Kordia mux.  Here in AKL we can't on a TV  but my non FV approved STB I can along with several other channels

Korean channels are vertical polarity from Sky tower. If you don't have appropriate antenna pointing to Sky tower then you can forget it.
