Updated List of Satellite TV FREE To Air (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.

Satellite TV FREE To Air FTA Frequencies 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.
