Eutelsat 5 West A satellite should have been retired over 6 months ago had Eutelsat 5 West B not been damaged now with only one solar panel working,

Not good for fixed dish reception the end is near for Stellat 5 launched 7th July 2002 with an expected life in geostationary orbit for 15 to16 years
Eutelsat 5 West A (incl. 0.5°)

Does anyone know how the customer dish repositioning in Italy is going ? With the proposed move from 5 west to 9 east.

Since some channels already are only on the 9e beam, I guess they already have a dish pointing at 9 east, otherwise the channels would be down on the DTT network in Italy.

The last couple of weeks some channels left 5West, and were only broadcasted on 9east. After a while they came back to 5 west and other channels moved to 9 east only. I guess this is applyable to 20 Mediaset...

Encryption of these channels seems impossible because if they did, they would be broadcasted encrypted on the DTT network in Italy. Or they should upgrade their systems and decrypt the channel at every transmitter... That seems unlikly. But not impossible though.

The DTT Network in Italy has a dish pointed at 9 east,

What about private dishes aimed at 5 west ? As they will soon be losing the TV on this satellite Eutelsat 5 West A at 5.0°W - LyngSat
Will they get assistance to receive 9 east ? As not everyone is capable of re-positioning a satellite dish.

Would imagine most consumer dishes in Italy are pointed at 13e already. Can't imagine 5w & 9e multi streams were ever officially promoted as an option for home reception by the provider, so why would they offer assistance.

So anyone not wanting to subscribe to 13 east will have to get their dish move to get the same TV FTA from 9 east in Italy.

How much ?

Does it open more than one satellite position at the moment ?

(Imay have to dust off a CI machine).

The prices have come down quite a bit in the last 18 months or so. They are about €100 from online retailers. Mine was about double that when I bought it a few years ago. It only works on 13E

I just need a card, if the SF8008 can run them in the side slot.

Cards are ~€80 online. (Tv Corner - never had any problem buying from them) If you have Italian contacts it will be cheaper
