People have asked numerous times....I have a 18" dish or a DIsh500. What can I get? Can I get free to air with it?

Well, the answer is YES.....well, sort of.

There are channels on the DBS satellites that you can get. No you won’t be getting a lot of channels, but in mine (and some others) minds, it is worth it.

Here is what you can get LEGALLY with a 18" dish. Please note there are things that come and go, but this is the most common list of FTA DBS channels.

61.5
nothing

82
nothing.

91
ExpressVu preview channel (times 3)
couple other slate channels

110
nothing

119
Channel 101...this shows how to use the receiver and has the...um very educational Charlie Chats

129
nothing

148
none (satellite got de-orbited)
So there you go...what can you get with a DBS satellite dish & LNB

edit: on 2/25 Dish scrambled NASA and Angel One that have been ITC for years were scrambled
