UNDERSTANDING SATELLITE TV
Introduction
Due to the geographic limitations of terrestrial TV, satellite TV is a popular choice for vehicles, as these transmissions serve a much larger geographic area. The below information outlines the various factors which must be considered when choosing your preferred satellite system.

Required Equipment
To receive and watch satellite TV, you will require a TV, a satellite receiver and a satellite system. Satellite receivers are available on subscription (such as Sky®) or with Free to Air functionality, requiring no subscription. More information on Maxview’s Free to Air Receiver can be found here.

Choosing Your Satellite System
It is necessary to adjust the position of the dish every time the vehicle is moved; the function of the satellite system is to position the dish in the correct position.

A range of systems have been developed to offer this functionality, from completely manual systems which have a simplified alignment process, through to fully automatic systems which are capable of locating a satellite at the press of a button. Satellite systems are available in both portable and roof mount applications.

Choosing Your Dish Size
All systems are available in a variety of dish sizes, ranging from 35cm up to 85cm. The dish size determines the geographic area from which you can receive your desired satellite, this area is known as the satellites ‘footprint’. For UK channels, we require the Astra 2 satellite.

Generally, the larger the dish, the greater the geographic area or ‘footprint’ from which you will receive satellite TV. Typically, to receive Astra 2 a 65 cm dish offers coverage into the centre of France, whilst an 85cm dish will offer coverage approaching the Spanish border.

The official Astra 2 footprint is displayed below, as well as our estimations for Maxview’s specific dish sizes. These maps are designed to help you make an informed decision on your required dish size, based on the areas you wish to travel.

Easy Set Up

by BobR (13 Dec 2022)
5 star review(5/5)
Nice unit which found the Astra 2 signal quite quickly - setting up was easy. Its lightweight is a boon. I would have preferred a longer F to F cable - 0.9 m is not long enough and the main 10m F to F cable would be better if more flexible - smaller diameter cable! Surprised the auxiliary F to F cable is not supplied as standard for a twin LNB unit.
