IMPORTANT SATELLITE INFORMATION TO HELP YOU TUNE IN
1. Galaxy 11 is located at 91 degrees West. You may be able to find it by choosing G7 on your receiver (Galaxy 7 was in this position in the past). If you would like to set up and/or test your receiver early, the following programming exists on Galaxy 11 (as of this writing):
Channel 10 - Shop at Home
If you see this programming, it is highly likely you will be able to receive our programming, however, if after several tries you don't see this programming, you may need to have your equipment checked out before our program. After successfully finding programming on these channels, don't forget to change to Channel 20 for our program.
2. SBS 6 is a Ku-band satellite located at 74 degrees West. You might find it by choosing "06" (zero six), or "B6" on your receiver. Unfortunately, there isn't any 24-hour a day programming on this satellite, however, ABC occasionally uses Channel 7 for ABSAT programming.
3. It is very important for you to test your equipment as soon as possible to ensure that it is functioning properly and to see if you can get programming from the satellite we'll be on. Storms can cause damage and/or move your antenna out of alignment or you may not have your satellite of choice programmed in. Do not wait until test time to discover problems. If you think your dish and/or receiver are malfunctioning or not programmed correctly, have them checked out by a professional well before the program.
4. Although a Troubleshooter will be provided, we cannot guarantee the performance of your equipment.
