  • Detail: Frequency - Polarization / Sound subcarrier / Colour system / Encryption system. Only non-digital Ku band channels with regular transmissions listed. Some part-time advertisement / shopping "channels" not included.
  • Polarization abbreviations: V: Vertical / H: Horizontal / R : Right circular / L: Left Circular.
  • Some channels, in particular Eurosport (Astra, Eutelsat); Euronews, Cartoon Channel, Arte (Kopernikus, Astra) have several sound carriers. Here listed under the "dominant" or the presumed most commonly watched language. Different part-time channels on the same transponder, run by the same company and with the same access/subscription are considered as one (thus Granada Good-Life and Granada Plus). Notice that some listed (thus the Astra channel EBN and Thor "Sky Nordic" channels are only part-time duplications of channels that send more fully on other satellites. 174 different channels (and 25 duplications) are listed, of these 51 English (13 in the clear), 30 German (28 clear), 22 French (7 clear), 20 Scandinavian (5 clear), 10 Spanish (4 clear) and 11 Arabic (all clear).


    This was written as a supplement to my "Satellite FAQ". It represents the status as of September 1997. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to keep it up to date, and refer to the SatcoDX page for up-to-date surveys of satellite channels.
