Does Polsat only transmit on Hotbird 13 degrees East?

i have my polsat decoder and need to buy a dish, but before i do I need to make sure I can see the satellite. Does Polsat only transmit on Hotbird 13 degrees East or can i get it or any other polish TV on another satellite.

I ask because I'm on one side of our block of flats and the satellite is on the other, I have no line of sight.

At this time I'm reluctant to enter into a 12 month contract with a cable provider.

thanks for any help

Here you go check this out []. I think you will find Polsat uses only Hotbird 13.You may try asking here [] or [] on both forums they are very helpfull.I get the best of all worlds as I run a motorised satellite system which gives more flexibility and more tv from around the globe in fact more than I could ever need

You will find a number of Polish stations on Astra 1 too but if you have no "line of sight" then the satellites are a waste of time, they are only a few degrees apart. Lyngsat will give you frequencies but I think you are going to need cable.

I agree, I have no line of sight on the European sattellites... unless i can get a bracket that stands the dish about a meter away from the building then I might just clear the end of the building. But possibly not.

If you're unable to postion your dish for hotbird then unlikly to get the other ones,as they're all lined up in one orbit.

either change the side or rise a long bar to reach the other side.

you would find polsat in other satellite,but it's all down to your position,not all satelitte broadcast for Europe
