C-band info

Archived from groups: alt.video.satellite.mpeg-dvb (More info?)

I know very little about C-Band, if I was going to get into this what is the
minimum size dish I could use in eastern US?
by looking at the lyngsat info, can I determine the size of dish I require
for a specific feed?

    I have an old solid aluminum dish which seems to do what I want very well.
    It also gives me the C Band channels for FTA. I do not, however, use 4DTV.
    I live near Ottawa in Canada.

    You're really missing something,then!I upgraded a few years ago and I'm so
    glad I did!The video and sound quality are phenomenal,even analog looks
    better!Then there's the onscreen guide.

    I've got practically everything else that is free so I'll look into it.
    What does it cost per month? Where can I buy it from in Canada?

    Murphy's Programming : www.webwoods.com/murphys

    The free stuff is nice,but there's no guarantee it'll be there next
    week,it'sunscheduled programming and the best stuff is on 4dtv.

    The digital pak with Murphy's runs you $280 Can....just over $20/month,or I
    spuppose one could pay for a year of the digital discovery pak and have
    access to the IPG and free channels,but one miss all those other discovery
    channels,music,food,diy,fine living and a host of other stuff!Not to mention
    the potential of 84 movie channels!Free CD music feeds too,Over 100 of them
    counting DMX and Music choice andn other radio stations!

    Add ku band(that's my next project!) and the sky's the limit!

    For some things, a four foot dish will work. Since 10 foot dishes are
    free it is best to go with that.

    Look for a Starchoice 921 for a taste of the free stuff. Should be
    able to find one cheap.

    If you go with an 8' dish, then you will really need a 17 deg. LNB. A larger
    dish can relax a little as the dish can make up for the gain that the LNB
    doesn't have.
