I have got 90 cm Dish with D1 and D2 and that is working ok.
Is it possible to add Intelsat 19 to that or on a separate dish.
Location is Christchurch New Zealand

Seems to be the case, although these are the ANZ beams. If you want a transponder that's a different beam it might be a different story

Optus D2 - 152E:
EIRP level = 50 dBW Recommended dish size = 60cm / 23.6in

Optus D1 - 160E:
EIRP level = 50 dBW Recommended dish size = 60cm / 23.6in

Intelsat 19 - 166E:
EIRP level = 50.9 dBW Recommended dish size = 60cm / 23.6in

Yes a 90cm Should work fine, also I think its ok with a tripple LNBF with D1 in the middle

I tried this about a year ago with a 1.2 m dish. Yes, I picked up the bird, but the only unencrypted English language channel of interest I could receive was NHK. I was hoping to get BBC, but alas, those transponders are too weak to be received by my 1.2m dish in Kapiti. So now I don't bother with it any more.

But may be things have changed since then.

A 90cm dish would be large enough for the "Australia and New Zealand" Ku beam but it may be tricky to set up three working LNBs on the one dish.
The dish will be too small for the Western Hemisphere C band beam.

I think you can now buy a dual band LNB that supports both C and Ku.

There is heaps of English FTA on Intelsat 19 KU band. News, sports, and general entertainment.

I should have clarified: not much on there for a small dish using C-Band.

Can't speak for Christchurch but here in rural Hastings no problem at all. I have a dual lnb (Sky and Freeview) plus two singles (D2 and Intelsat 19) on a 80 cm dish and good reception all three.
