If you are receiving from the same satellite all the time you don't need a motorised dish because the satellite is geostationary. However if you want to switch between satellites, a motor makes it much easier, especially of the dish is mounted high up.

Default Satellite Information in the Philippines

Hello! I hate to make my first post a necro post, but hey. I've got something to say on the topic.

We just moved to Agusan del Sur, and I'm pretty sure I'm the most over equipped, over qualified satellite installer in Mindanao, if not the entire nation. I have more than ten years experience designing, installing, and servicing satellite systems for all major US players including Dish Network, DirecTV, HughesNet, Exede (Wild Blue), GloryStar, other FTA, and more. The one thing I lack is C-Band experience (these are the huge dishes you are all talking about - 6'+). I hope to get into the hotel and institutional market(s) here, as almost nothing in the residential or commercial sector is going to be worth my time. Those SMATV systems are my niche.

Anyway, the boxes we shipped haven't arrived yet, so I haven't spent any time playing with the orbital locations available here in the PH. Once my gear arrives, I plan on becoming the go to guy for satellite information (FTA and subscription) here in the PH. Feel free to PM me to chit chat! I love talking about satellite stuff.

Maayong gabii!

Lots of interesting electronic stuff on the website, including satellite systems. But, is there a place here in the Philippines to buy? Or does it need to be imported for each item?

Although I am from the UK not being into American Football or English Football either,
I am happy with the cable channels we get (530 pesos a month which includes sports channels and 8 movie channels as well ! )
I also use a free site www.filmontv.com which lets me watch all of the UK channels for free and live ( although ) here in the Philippines we are 8 hours ahead of the UK !
And there are hundreds of free movies to watch as well although not the latest ones !
but its all free !!
