WDR local time viewers will be able to receive their broadcast completely in HD via satellite from March 3, 2021. So far this was only possible for the local time in Cologne.
The technical requirements for the offer are provided by the new satellite transponder 21, which the WDR will put into operation in early March in cooperation with SES ASTRA at the orbital position 19.2 ° East.
In order to be able to use the new offer, a search is required on the receiving devices. From March 3, 2021, this can be carried out either as an automatic or manual search run - with the following parameters: Reception frequency: 11523.25 MHz; Polarization: horizontal; Modulation: DVB-S2 8PSK; Symbol rate: 22 Msymb / s; FEC: 2/3
How the programs are sorted after the search depends on the respective receiving device. Newly found programs are often added to the end of the program list.
The existing WDR HD services via satellite will continue to be broadcast for the time being, but will be marked with the addition "old" in the service name from March 3, 2021. This makes it possible to distinguish between the new HD services in the program list.
