Good Evening Guy's,

Does anybody know if the new Nilesat 201 which I believe is due to replace the existing Nilesat 101 & 102 in the middle of 2010 be a stronger signal or will it be beamed totally for the middle east region.

I am just thinking ahead to see if I might need to upgrade my Channel Master 2.4 to a Prodelin 3.0 if the signal is dropped.

Many thanks.

The only info I can find is that Nilesat 201 will be built based on Spacebus 4000B2 technology ..
The same construction as Thor 6 ...
So presumably the same 'abilities' apply...regarding transponders and beam coverage..

There is no information available about the coverage for Nilesat 201, but Id expect the transmission beam to be far more restricted than the current Nilesats - transmission beam shaping technology has improved radically in the last 5-10 years.

Its quite possible 3m wont be big enough in the Midlands, although we wont know until the bird is orbited and in service

Thank You chaps,

Do you know if the Prodelin 3m will out perform my existing Channel Master 2.4m the gain suggests that it will, However it is always nice to find out from people who are in the know.

A work friend has just come back from Dubai and he mentioned that in the local press over there Showsports are close to doing a deal with Abu Dhabi for them to sub lease the English premiership games from 2010 football season.

Thanks for that I will definately give it a go once Digi TV changes to Nag 3.

I know there only a hand full of channels but thats better than nohing down here in spain.

just out of interest, they are cutting the analogue signal down here in 12 days, bringing it forward from 31 dec.

its leaving alot of people in the brown stuff as not ever tv here has a scart plug!!!!

digital is also very fragile in wind and rain you can wave it good bye along with the sky signal!!!
