Previously, we brought you a publication on the latest digital satellite pay-TV service launched in Nigeria. It is the new Telcom Satellite Television TStv Nigeria. You may know about the DStv, MyTV and other satellite TVs in Nigeria that utilizes the Direct-to-Home DTH signal transmission technology. The DTH means that no matter where you are located, as long as you are seeing the blue sky, you can recieve the TV signals directly from the satellite in space. Just like the DStv, the TStv uses the satellite dish, decoders and other accessories similar to the DStv. However the only difference between the DStv and the TStv lies in the satellite and decoder settings which when set properly, gives you access to the TStv signals.

Therefore, this post will show you the complete settings for the TStv decoders and the satellite dish positioning settings too. If you knew how to install the DStv and other satellite TVs, then you can comfortably install the TStv. Basically they follow the same installation procedure as all satellite TV services currently operational in Nigeria are of similar technology.

Now let us go straight to the point. Below are the decoder settings and satellite dish positioning parameter values which enables you to intercept or recieve the TStv Nigeria satellite TV signals.

  • Position : ABS 3A @ 3° West
  • LNB Position : 4 ‘O’ Clock
  • Symbol Rate : 30000
  • Frequency : 11052
  • Dish Size : 90cm (offset) and above
  • Polarity : Horizontal (H)
  • TRACKING TP 11167 H 30000
  • TSTV on *ABS 3A @ 3° West*

A careful application of these decoder settings and satellite positioning parameters will surely grant you access to the super quality digital video and audio satellite TV signals of the Telcom Satellite Tv service in Nigeria.

Full commercial sales of the complete dish, decoders and accessories of the TStv begins this November 2017 in Nigeria. Major wholesale and retail dealers of the new TStv are springing up all over the country. At least with TStv, Nigerians may soon have a veritable alternative to other already existing satellite pay-TV services in Nigeria.
