Further to my enquiries about receiving Intelsat 19 in Christchurch on a 90 cm dish.
One of the answers tells me that Intelsat 19 on KU Band is the answer.
Could someone please explain how to receive that Ku-Band. Do I need anything else that the 90 cm dish?

You will need a Ku LNB for the dish, and a satellite receiver.

Thanks for explaining. So is it possible to add the Ku LNB to the D1 and D2 I already have on the 90cm dish or do I need another dish?

You could add another LNB to your existing dish, it would be the opposite side to D2. You already have 2 Ku band LNBs if you are getting D1 and D2, so you could use one of those if you don't want both those sats.
