Well, if you recall, November 1st was supposed to be the official sales of TSTV Africa Decoders but the company in a press statement said that due to ongoing accreditation of dealers, the sales of decoders would not commence until the accreditation process is concluded. They also said that over five thousand of free units of TSTV PR Decoders have been deployed nationwide for testing and they have launched their transmission nationwide and make all the channels Free to Air for one month.
So earlier this week, I was able to join in the ongoing testing transmission of TSTV Africa. Although I couldn’t lay my hand on the TSTV PR Decoder since the broadcasting is Free to Air then it was easy for me to enjoy the Channels by using a Strong HD Decoder to tap into TSTV Satellite. I used the parameter provider my TSTV Africa to track their Satellite here in my location (Epe Lagos);
Satellite: ABS 3A
Position: 3 degree west
Symbol rate: 30000
Dish : 90 cm
but I notice that the Frequency provided by the company 11052 is not working so I used 11088 (H) instead and it works.
The Channels are very clear, some are even available in HD. Although, Channels like Grand Sport 1 and 2 are currently not working at the time of posting this article. In fact, I couldn’t find beIN sports on the Channels list 😷. Personally, am only interested in the internet data (20GB) coming with the TSTV decoders but nothing have been said online about it yet. 😡😡
The Picture Quality of TSTV Africa
If you are also interested in joining the ongoing testing transmission of TSTV Africa then make sure that you use the above parameters available above and use any HD decoder like Strong Decoder or QSat to track TSTV Satellite. Note that you can’t make use of DSTV, GOTV or Startimes decoders to track TSTV Satellite.
