Updated FTA Frequencies from East to West
Hi everyone!, this post is more of a contributory type, whereby we can all update ourselves with FTA frequencies that are working from East to West. It will be like an archive, a platform, a forum, a hub, an exchange point or whatever; whereby we all come, drop frequencies that have been tinkered and discovered, share stuffs and more.
And not to forget!, this is particularly targeted for the African audience, most especially, Nigeria, Ghana, Niger, etc……But, if you are from other region, you may also find one or two things that might be of interest to you. Alright let the sharing begin!.
Updated List of Satellite TV FREE To Air (FTA) Frequencies from East to West
And not to forget! I may show more interest in the KU band frequencies, neglecting that of the CBAND. So feel free to convince me not to do so. Ok!.
I am going to be updating this post on a timely basis; with happening and
fappenings, around FTA which is within my scope! You can pretty much save this page to browser’s bookmark or mark this as favorite, so you can access the page to check out new stuffs.
And also, note, I may skip so many frequencies based on their relevancy, but, you can also correct me or let me know on something not well done via the comment section. Happy Sharing!
So without wasting time, let’s get started:
Though I am a bit lazy with this, so will go at my own pace, but, you can also contribute your own frequencies via the comment section below.
And also you would observe all of the frequencies are toggled in horizontal and vertical (H/V) polarization without specifying. This is because, for any frequency to be on either Horizontal or Vertical depends on your own end. That is the orientation you have done on the LNB. Correct me if am wrong!.
What Minimum Dish Size is Needed: At least most of these frequencies shared below; works in most location in Nigeria with a minimum dish size of 90cm. Don’t know what 90cm dish size looks like? Well, looks like that of the DSTV or Kwese Dish. 1.8m dish and above is an added advantage, plus, an actuator to direct dish at any satellite position you deem fit.

#11. TSTV Africa formerly on
ABS 3A @3°W Now on Nigcomsat 42.5E
TSTV has been very unstable, switching from one satellite position to another. Thus, the need to update this post on a regular basis. Below is the updated TSTV TP and tracking degree:
New Update (August 2019):
- 11513 (V/H) Sym: 30000
- 11477 (V/H) Sym: 30000
TSTV is currently at AzerSpace 2 That is Intelsat 38 at 45.0°E near NigComSat 1R Which is at 42.5°E. Therefore, to track TSTV, you can first track Nigcomsat, then tilt down a little since the around 2.5 degree apart.
TSTV Africa is now in the same position as NIGCOMSAT 42.5E. So if you have NIGCOMSAT channels running already in your decoder. Simply blindscan the decoder to nail new TSTV channels and frequencies.
TSTV Africa! came with lots of promises and expectations. All hopes high and kind of faded away leaving behind the initial momentum…But, here you go with the frequencies:
