    Help me decide...

    3ABN also has as their intended audience several hundred thousand home FTA viewers. What I meant to say was that since 3ABN intends to broadcast to home FTA viewers there would "probably" be no way that they would switch away from KU satellite broadcasting. If they were only dealing with...

    Help me decide...

    If 3ABN is not going to be on Dish as a free channel and you want 3ABN for sure I would go with the 3ABN dish or glorystar system. Who knows if the 3ABN IPTV will " pan out" in the end. 3ABN will allways need their KU satellite to send the signals to the affiliate TV stations. And if...

    Help me decide...

    If you are just wanting to receive 3ABN I would just wait around until Sky Angel goes off the air and see if you still receive 3ABN thru your Sky Angel receiver. Sky Angel disconnected my lifetime subscription once and I still received 2 channels thru the Sky Angel receiver, 3ABN and the...

    No 3ABN on the Sky Angel IPTV lineup ???

    I had read somewhere that sky angel lost about 50,000 subscriptions when they stoped carrying 3ABN. I think they were between a rock and a hard place. People were complaining about 3ABN but when they lost 3ABN they no longer had a large enough base income to continue their satellite service...

    Aiming old Dish receiver to 61.5 for 3ABN PI only

    I have a friend who ended their service with Dish Network and went with Direct TV. The Dish equipment is theirs. They want to aim the dish (dish 500 I think ) to 61.5 to get 3ABN as a PI channel. What are the steps to aim a duel satellite dish to a single satellite? Should I disconnect...

    Help - Installing Dish this weekend

    When Sky Angel turned off my subscription (because of the letter that has been talked about here) I could still get 3ABN. The other PI channels, pentagon ect. dissappeared. When my subscription came back on the other PI channels, pentagon ect. were still missing.

    Help - Installing Dish this weekend

    Even when Sky Angel goes off the air you still might be able to pick up 3ABN with the Sky Angel Dish. 3ABN is a Public Interest channel on that same satellite.

    I got deactivated by Sky Angel. The next day the public interest channels disappeared but I am still receiveing 3ABN. The only thing I am getting is 3ABN, and the screen that says you are pointed at 61.5, and the Dish info channel. Do you think 3ABN is a free channel that anyone with a...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    Maybe the thread title should say "3ABN moves to Dish Network as Public Interest Channel" 3ABN in not really part of the Sky Angel line up. It is a Public interest Channel. It was nice of Dish Network to allow it to be seen by Sky Angel Subscribers without making them ask E* to turn on...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    Remember that may times the people working in the 3ABN call center are volunteers. This is a direct copied quote from the 3ABN website. "Notice to our 3ABN Sky Angel Viewers. Since April 14th, 2006, 3ABN has not been available on the Sky Angel system due to the sudden loss of a...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    I just called 3ABN to ask them if they had any more information about when 3ABN will be coming to Dish Network and what we would have to do to receive it. They said they do not have a set date and they are sort of waiting to see when Dish Network turns them on like everyone else is waiting...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    Iceman, what does this mean? 9710 - 3ABN moved from EchoStar3 61.5W TP 32 ConUS beam to EchoStar5 129W TP 17 ConUS beam (NA Does this mean 3ABN will also be on Echostar 5?

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    I found this further info. What do you think they are talking about when they say "specific channel authorisations"? Echostar III transmits all transponders used by Dish and Sky Angel. Transponders 2, 4, 5 - 8, 10, 12 - 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 are being used by Dish. Transponders 26 - 31 are...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    Was there ever any statement that it was a transponder that failed that was the reason that 3ABN was taken off Sky Angel? I remember reading that the technical problems were resolved and that problem then evolved into a contract dispute. Looking back I found this quote. "Sky Angel was...

    Other Channels on E3

    Call back and ask to talk to Tech support and ask them to turn on the "FREE public access channels". They will read you some long disclamer and ask you to agree to it. Then they will turn them on for you. I you get some Tech service person that says they can't do it just call back again and ask...

    3ABN now available to both Dish Network subs and Sky Angel subs

    This is a quote from a live online interview with Danny Shelton the president of 3ABN. "If you watched the 3ABN live you saw that we announced we would be on Dish Network in the next two to three weeks. Muliple thousands of honest SDA's and other Christians anxious for the Gospel Message to...

    Sky Angel Plans to Charge Lifelong Subscribers for "Special Secular" Channels

    They could dump one of the "special" channels and put 3ABN back on. 3ABN would let them have the programming for FREE. I think they may have lost more than $900,000 in subscriptions when they dumped 3ABN.

    Need help with setup

    Try one cable first and see if you can receive Angel 1. If you can't then try the other cable. Since you have not had the system connected for a while you might not be able to get the other Sky angle channels. If the other channels do not show up you will have to call sky angel and tell them...

    3 ABN Satellite Install

    I know the fence post does move some if you grab it and shake it. The last thing I do when I peak the signal is to grab the pole an shake it around while watching the tv to see if the signal breaks up. If someone is worried about the pole flexing they could fill the pole with cement. I...
