Parameters for Satellite Receivers

If you need parameters (settings for your dish system receiver) to receive the various 3ABN channels from any satellite carrying our free-to-air (FTA) channels, this page lists the settings you need to use.

A satellite footprint map, showing the region(s) covered by each satellite, is available.
