FTA satellites in South Africa for Free TV (Ku Band)

If you are looking for Free TV in South Africa  a good place to start is by finding out what satellites cover South Africa and deciding if the channels will appeal to you. Many satellites around the world broadcast FTA channels which provide options for watching television without subscriptions legally and if you find free TV channels that appeal to your tastes this may be a great option if you find Pay TV too expensive.

If you are looking for free television then you will probably want to check these satellites in South Africa which have FTA channels available. You will need a KU band LNB to receive free TV on these satellites. Remember that you can use a DiSeqc switch or motor to view multiple satellites from a single receiver or decoder. Your local installer should be able to provide you with the best options and pricing for the equipment.


At the time of compiling this list there are about 70 free to air satellite channels visible from South Africa on the KU Band but be warned if you are looking for free TV you should keep in mind that this number changes very often as channels are removed or encrypted. It can still be a great alternative to DSTV or TopTV if you can't afford the monthly subscriptions and just want basic free television at home. Also the local Pay TV providers have been locking their decoders to prevent adding of FTA channels in an effort to prevent access to free television in South Africa. You will be far better off buying a FTA decoder which can be obtained from many local satellite installers including the accredited installers.
