DTH 'Satellite' TV Viewers


Information for Civilian Viewers in the Falkland Islands under the ‘SES 6 / NSS806’ Satellite with BFBS Technisat Receivers.

The instructions below are for you if you watch BFBS TV through a BFBS Technisat Satellite Receiver (shown below) and have a BFBS Conditional access card.

The upgrades to the BFBS satellite systems will mean that you will lose your BFBS TV channels just after 10:00 GMT on the 29th January. It will take a short period of time to complete the engineering works, and BFBS advises that from 11:00 GMT you should rescan your BFBS satellite receiver to be able to continue to watch BFBS TV.


To rescan your BFBS Technisat Receiver please follow these instructions.
