They are still providing service but for how long is unknown. I started the thread below about this. Please join in there and add your current experience with them. :)

Yes, the Orby dish uses a linear lnbf so it can be used for FTA. It is similar in size to the DirecTV Slimline dishes so it should pick up the channels one of those can get when they are modded for FTA use, like 97W, 95W, etc. :)

P.S. Welcome to Satellite Guys!

Correct, if the receiver is preprogrammed. Just make sure it is set for an LO of 10750.

Depending on date of "programming" you may need to preform blind scan. Nearly every receiver sold with satellite list is dated.
