Welcome to the web site of Travelsat-TV
We've just been informed
(as of 09/12/10) that there will be a simple procedure in place
for travellers to register their smartcard for temporary access (6
months at a time) online and with no ongoing fees. The card can be
reactivated an infinite number of times so you'll have permanent access if
needed. The process for traveller registration is easy and the
form can be found via this link.
Worth keeping in mind also, if you live in a TV1
licence area your smartcard can be activated permanently and you need
to visit this LINK
instead - enter your address, click go then click on 'satellite
eligibility' and follow the prompts. Once registered, you'll be able
to use this system anywhere in Australia and receive perfect digital
reception. Call us if you're unsure of the registration procedure.
Now available - This item will be sent
express shipping via Auspost.
As you may well be aware, there is a new free to air satellite service now
running in particular areas called VAST which is an acronym for Viewer
Access Satellite Television. The new VAST service will replace the
service that currently provides viewer access to ABC, SBS, Imparja and
Seven Central. The VAST service will offer the viewer the complete
suite of High and Standard Definition channels that were up to now, only
available to those living in major towns with digital TV coverage via a
digital set top box.
As of now, if you were to purchase a new VAST decoder with smartcard and
connect to a satellite dish, you would be able to immediately receive ABC
1,2,3 and the new ABC News 24 channel as well as SBS HD, 2 and 3.
Access to these channels is restricted to a two to three month
period after which time your smartcard must be registered. Registrations
should begin to take place in mid December 2010 (subject to
change) and this is providing you live within the Imparja/Seven
Central TV 1
licence area .
Even though the commercial content from the Seven, Nine and Ten networks
cannot be activated yet purchasing a VAST decoder guarantees you a unit
for when the commercial activations start taking place.
We have stock of the VAST decoders now. We anticipate a shortage of
supply later in the year due to the massive interest in this product .
If you would like to proceed with a purchase of this limited
stock - please click on this LINK.
If you require a complete system - please click on this LINK.
More information on the new VAST service can be found HERE.
Imparja have also released an update to the VAST service and how it will
affect their viewers at this LINK.
You can also visit our website at www.travelsat-tv.com.au for
contact details and more information.
Everyone MUST be aware that only those living in the approved TV1
licence area will be able to switch on the commercial channels from the
Seven, Nine and Ten networks later this year. Those of you outside
the TV1 licence area will not be able to access the commercial channels
without going through the black spot approval procedure as switch off
occurs in those areas. The onus for activation is the responsibility
of the end user and returns can only be accepted in circumstances where
the unit is faulty. This information applies to viewers in all
states except WA as broadcasters are still in negotiations with
regard to the VAST platform in
Optus D3 was successfully launched and is
now operational. This satellite will increase capacity to
accommodate existing customers Sky NZ, Foxtel and Austar. It will
share it's orbital slot with the Optus C1 satellite so existing customers
are not required to re-align their dishes. A 10.70GHz LNB will be
required to pick up both satellite frequencies.
The new VAST satellite service will soon be up and running and available
to those living in rural and remote areas. Soon, everyone will be able to
access ABC1, ABC2, SBS1, SBS2, SEVEN HD, 7TWO, NINE HD, NINE GO!, TEN HD
and TEN ONE. Those of you who already receive Imparja and Seven
Central will automatically qualify.
