North & South America satellite coverage

North & South America Satellite

BFBS TV and Radio services can be received from the SES6 satellite across the Americas. All unobscured mainland locations within the shaded areas of the 10 degree contour should be able to receive BFBS services with a satellite dish of 1.8m diameter. It may still be possible to receive BFBS services in locations outside of the 10 degree contour, but these locations would have to be investigated on a case by case basis. BFBS has software tools to do this using the location co-ordinates.
