FTA Channels not Always Boring
« on: May 31, 2010, 12:32:38 pm »
I can understand that movies, sport events, cartoons etc are commercialized by pay TV's. It takes a lot of investment in order to create those programs. That is why pay-TV companies do their utmost to utilize them and make money. Many people need those TV programs and that means an opportunity for businessmen to run this section of entertainment businesses. However there is something which makes me confused. Why do they (pay-TV companies) pack FTA channels included the local ones and make them scrambled while they can be viewed as free-of-charge channels. I am not good at business calculation but the fact is they make money out of those TV programs.

Some pay-TV's here even give a one-year limit for the local channels to be visible for their customers and beyond the limit the channels will be blank. Therefore, prospective customers should be very careful before they decide whether to subscribe to pay TV or to take the prepaid one or FTA only or mixed FTA and prepaid. As for me myself, I took the mixed one so that I still can watch FTA channels when my prepaid voucher runs out. Of course the the parabolic antenna should be completed with actuator + positioner. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of worth-watching FTA channels many them are scrambled by Pay-TV companies, among other things BBC, Australia Network, Jim Jam, Fashion TV, NHK, Aljazeera etc. Furthermore, there are also worth-watching channels such as Living Asia Channels (Agila2), TV5 Global, the World Network, HCTV/cartoons, Russia Today, Pop Channel (Thaicom2), Euronews Asia, Luxe TV, Press TV/Iran, Saudi2(Asiasat2), Xing Kong, Arirang Arab, DW TV Asia +, Lotus/Macau (Asiasat3) etc. Talking about Lotus/Macau, this channel is completely FTA and it always presents interesting western films all day long every day. Its programs are even much better than the real pay TV's movies package such as HBO, HBO Signature, Star Movies, Cinemax and MGM. Just believe me that FTA channels are not always boring.

FYI,

because provider still needs to rent transponder slot for FTA channel... so the money that u pay is not belongs to FTA channel.. but to the transponder slot and satellite they rent....

can you imagine if provider not charging fee for FTA channel... so who will pay for satellite and transponder slot that they rent for FTA Channels?

so Pay TV is a profit taking company not a non profit social services company... hehehehe...
Its just My Opinion... CMIIW...

and i very agree with u... some FTA Channel is very good....  (y)

Thanks for your response bro. TV stations which broadcast FTA programs pay their expenses from the income they get from commercials. Their principle is the more viewers they have the more income from commercials the get. So by cooperating with pay-TV providers they expect to obtain more viewers so that they can get more commercials. This idea just came to my mind after I read your reply. Btw, can you suggest some other interesting FTA channels?  (d)

this will be interesting discussion... its nice to discuss with you bro...  (y)
IMO, tv stations already have their own transponder and you are absolutely right regarding they pay their own transponder slot with commercial, so they already have a strategy to obtain more viewer without cooperate with pay tv. Pay tv just relay the FTA Channels, so they dont directly get profit from commercial on fta channels. It is like win win solutions for both of them. Fta channels dont have to pay anything for pay tv provider but for return fta channels allow pay tv to relay their station. But for pay tv, fta channel will make their collection more bigger. so when go to market they have something to sell.. its call "MORE CHANNELS" hehehehhee... right? so the subscriber money from FTA channel will go to pay tv operations cost.  :)
i hope it will answer your question regarding "why pay tv charge fee from us for FTA Channels"  :) CMIIW

I just dream about one day in indonesia will have ala carte pay tv... so we just pick our channel and pay for those channels only. so pay tv provide a list of channel with the channel price like star movies 10k, celestial 10k. so if i only choose celestial i just pay 10k a month. i think thats quite fair enough, better than we must upgrade our pay tv subscribe for only 1 or 2 channel that we wanted to watch and it will cost us a whole package.  :(
its like my experience... i must add 50k a month to the package that include celestial. hiks...hiks... for me i just want to see one channel only... just celestial.. i dont need rest of channel on that package.  :'( :'( :'(

its just sharing my opinions...
next question....
a good FTA Channels for me is:
for music Channel V (asiasat 3s, abs 5), CTN 3 (abs 5), FTV for Taiwan serial drama (JCSAT3), Lotus macau, xin kong, Fashion TV, for soccer live = al jazerra sport, rai international, VTV, TV 5 and hoping some scrambled channel  when they decrypt their scrambled for temporary hahahahaha.....
like people said.. what do you expect from the channel that gives you free broadcast... right?... just enjoy it as long as it free.... (y)

Thank you Bro for your sharing of other FTA channels that we can watch. But unfortunately my gadget cannot tract some of the satellites you have mentioned and I don't know which one causes the problems. Probably the dish is too small or the LNB is of the low quality or the receiver only has limited capability to receive other satellite signals or the installation and setting were not properly done by the technician. Or maybe it can be caused by combination of them?  I really don't know  :( . IMO, I don't think pay-TV's can just relay FTA channels even though they have mutual advantages. There must be an agreement between both of them, otherwise there will be a law infringement so that one can take legal action against another. In the meantime I also agree with your idea of a la carte selection for the channels that you want so that you can really enjoy the money you spend for. As a matter of fact, there is another thing that we can enjoy from satellite technology i. e : radio stations with high-quality sound. This advantage is less frequently mentioned in this forum. Is it because it's not allright listening to the radio on TV? After all, I cannot enjoy listening to music on TV myself  :-#.

We pay the programs of Tv with daily need, The advertisement  whom they show to us, we become interested with them, but one of the country show us that something is different than others. Yamal 202 Satellite for example, its like to commercial television, yeaaaaah.......it cross culture understanding
