North Cyprus Satellite TV

Post by Admin » Tue Feb 27, 2018 5:50 pm

There are a number of different satellite TV solutions available to British Expatriates (English speaking foreign residents) living in North Cyprus.

The majority of the available options require installation of a 'good' quality 90cm dish in conjunction with a high end LNB and the best quality coax cable. Compromise on the quality of any of the components and the consequential loss in signal strength and/or quality results in picture break up and/or total loss of signal during the winter months - when there is heavy cloud and/or rain. Further, use cheaper components and it will not be possible to receive the TV channels that are delivered on the transponders only producing a partial signal footprint to North Cyprus.

Satellite dishes for any/all of the Satellite TV systems that are available in North Cyprus should be positioned to receive a signal from the East (over the Kyrenia mountain range).

Any off the shelf satellite receiver can be used to receive the various free to air TV channels that are available in North Cyprus, but again, the slightly more expensive satellite receivers with higher quality tuners produce better results. Various broadcasters offer subscription TV channels that are only available using their own dedicated satellite receivers with paired smart cards which are only available from the broadcasters, their agents and sometimes, through grey market channels.

North Cyprus is served by Digiturk and D-Smart satellite TV broadcasters. Both companies offer various paid-for subscription packages, from basic entry level to full Movie, News and Sports subscriptions. Various other subscription TV systems are available from Middle-Eastern broadcasters through satellites whose signal footprint is available in North Cyprus. All the aforementioned satellite TV broadcasters have paid the right's holders to broadcast their copyrighted content, the first two for Turkey and the latter for numerous other Middle Eastern Countries.
