FTA services are not like the regular ones, for example, DSTV or MYTV. FTA satellites have no subscription price. The only payment you make is the very first payment for the equipment and the initial installation. What’s more, you don’t need several decoders. If you have some knowledge and skills, you can use just one decoder to watch as many satellites channels as you like.

Actually, the number of FTA channels you will be able to get depends greatly on how big your dish is. The angle and the direction it’s pointed at will also determine a lot. The bigger dish you get, the more FTA channels you will receive with a C-band. The smallest size that’s recommended for a good deal of FTA is 1.8 meters.

Apart from the sports, you can watch a number of other channels. Sometimes, not all of them are that exciting but you just should keep in mind that you have paid only once and now can choose what you like among a real multitude of available channels. Also, you should remember that the number of available FTA channels has a tendency to increase literally with every month, not even a year.

The easiest part here is the process of installation because the manual that comes with the dish, decoder and all the cables is quite straightforward and helpful. However, if you are not experienced in such things, you may need a professional who will get you all the channels you want.
