Product Description

Do you suffer from poor TV reception with limited digital TV signal?  This VAST system may be the answer.  Get access to all of the free to air channels on the Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST) platform.  This kit includes the high performance Azure Shine 85cm dish which is zinc and powdercoated (great coverage anywhere in Australia), 10.700GHz low noise block (LNB) which receives the reflected signal from the dish, choice of roof mount (tin, tile or wall - choose from the options), SatPlus deluxe analog satellite finder (for locating the satellite), acrylic map compass (for location of North), 15 metres of quality RG6 quad shield coaxial cable (this will connect from the dish to the VAST decoder), internal wallplate and plaster bracket, internal RG6 quad shield 2m cable, SatKing DVBS2-800CA VAST CERTIFIED satellite decoder (set top box) - VAST smartcard is included.  Of course, we also include installation instructions to assist with the alignment and tech support if needed. As always, when you purchase from SatPlus Australia, you get peace of mind in knowing that we offer free technical support to get your system up and running so you can enjoy FREE TV in high definition, crystal clear format and never worry about poor TV reception again.

In order to access the programs below, you need to ensure that you are eligible for VAST.  To check for eligibility, complete the following steps:

  1. Visit MySwitch and type your address into the search bar then click GO.  If you can't find your address, enter your suburb then drag the little red teardrop marker close to your location then let go.
  2. Check your Satellite Eligibility (VAST) by clicking on the link down the left side of the MySwitch page.  If it states you are entitled to receive VAST then all is fine and you can go ahead and purchase this system.  If the results are that the broadcasters believe that you are in an adequate signal area, you can still go ahead and apply for VAST by filling out the application form.  When it asks for your smartcard number, just enter the number 42000000000 (9 zeros) and submit the form.  VAST will then get back to you and let you know whether you are eligible or not.  If yes, then you can go ahead and purchase this system.  Please note that travellers should use the travellers link on the MySatTV website.  The rules for eligibility do not apply to travellers as they can access the VAST service while on the road.

For those of you living in any state other than WA, the channels available via the VAST service are:

Regional news feeds are also available (see channel 4 on VAST).  These news feeds are broadcast at various times throughout the evening.  This enables the viewer to catch up on local news as well as national news from the commercial and public broadcast providers.

For those of you living in WA, all of the ABC and SBS channels will be available to you also.  However, instead of receiving the commercial channels Seven Central, Imparja and Ten, you will receive Prime and Win.  See below:

NT and WA buyers please note:  Due to the very expensive charges we incur in shipping large items like dishes and kits to NT or WA, you are now required to choose the delivery state above when ordering.  We NEVER profit from freight and in many cases we lose.  This extra charge only applies to dishes and dish kits.  Thank you for your understanding.

  1. Easy to align and perfrect picture

    Hi John,

    Just a note to say thanks for the satellite kit. The reception is absolutely brilliant.

    You may get some more orders from this area, a couple of friends are keen to see how I got on and I’ve also mentioned it to our rural postman. We are in one of the last areas to be turned off so people will most likely wait till after December when the commercial stations become available. The TV people in this area seem to be unaware of the free to air satellite system and simply say that you need a new aerial or coax etc.

    I also found it easy to tweek the dish using the satellite finder (I didn’t have someone to watch the TV). To find the satellite was easy, because they are almost due north they all have the same elevation, so I found one using the info you gave me, locked the vertical and panned the dish till I got the right one (no 4).

    To tweek the dish using the satellite finder, after finding the satellite I simply turned the knob to the left till the needle showed about a quarter and I found that I barely touched the dish and the needle moved, so I moved the dish till the needle started to drop back, then locked where the needle showed the highest reading, locked the horizontal and repeated the process for the vertical. When I checked Menu on ‘Advanced-Signal’ I got Signal Strength of 83% and Quality of 42.

    Thanks again for a brilliant product.

    Hope I can steer some more sales your way.

    Kind regards

    Lyle
