A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Interesting, someone was asking me last week what he would need to pull in 25.5 East, so I guess he'll have to rethink.

I can not receive any tting from 25.5 east about 2 years ago i could receive one scpc transponder from 25.5e and it could be received on a 90cm dish but nothing from the orbit transponders also the new price per month is $65 for the new full orbit/showtime package but you need a irdeto card as they are getting rid of the old seca philips and humax xd300 receivers. So it looks like 7w is the main place for tv in the middle east,
