VAST Free to Air Television Full Satellite System for Home

Product Description

VAST Free to Air Television Full Satellite System for Home - Full Kit with new model Altech DSD 5000 VAST Decoder 

KEY POINTS AND BENEFITS

Do you suffer from poor TV reception with limited or no digital TV signal?  This VAST home satellite kit system may be the answer.  Get access to all of the free to air channels on the Viewer Access Satellite Television (VAST) platform. 

Using a VAST (Viewer Access Satellite Television) satellite dish in Australia offers several advantages, especially given the vastness of the continent and the variability of its terrestrial TV reception. Here are 10 of the best reasons to consider using a VAST satellite dish:

1. **Coverage Across Remote Areas**: Australia is vast with many remote and rural areas. VAST ensures that even those living in the most isolated parts of the country can access quality television services.

2. **Consistent Reception**: Unlike terrestrial TV services, which can be impacted by geographical obstructions, VAST offers consistent and clear reception almost everywhere in Australia.

3. **Access to All Major Channels**: VAST provides access to a range of Australia's major TV channels, ensuring viewers can watch popular national programs.

4. **Resilience to Weather**: While some satellite services can be affected by severe weather, VAST is designed to be robust and usually provides consistent service even in challenging weather conditions.

5. **No Need for Multiple Antennas**: In some regions, terrestrial TV reception may require multiple antennas to pick up different channels. With VAST, a single satellite dish suffices.

6. **Equal Access for All Australians**: VAST is an initiative by the Australian government to ensure that all residents, irrespective of their location, have equal access to TV services.

7. **Complementary to Internet Streaming**: In areas with limited or no broadband, relying solely on internet streaming might not be viable. VAST ensures that residents in such areas can still access TV services.

8. **Easy Setup**: While the initial installation requires accurate alignment of the dish, once set up, VAST is easy to use and requires minimal maintenance.  Our concise instructions and phone support if required, will have you up and running in a very short time.

9. **Free-to-Air Channels**: Most of the channels available on VAST are free-to-air, which means no ongoing subscription costs for the majority of content.

10. **Access to Local News**: VAST also provides regional variations of channels, ensuring that viewers in different parts of the country can access local news and updates relevant to their area.

For those living in areas with poor terrestrial TV reception or in remote parts of Australia, VAST is a vital service that ensures consistent access to television content.

    Our kit arrived within days. There were easy to understand instructions so apart from a comical husband and wife team calling to each other from inside and outside the building installation was a breeze. Our service is better than we have ever experienced elsewhere in Victoria. Well done SatPlus in a world which seems to have forgotten how to do respectfully with people. Thank you

    Ask a Question
    • Do u get overseas channels with this?

      Hi,

      No, this is a VAST certified decoder only for use with the Australian satellite VAST service.


      SatPlus Australia

    • Hello Planning on installing the satellite at the abrohlos island (pidgeon island) off the coast of geraldton, will this satellite be suitable

      Hi,

      Looking at the coverage maps, the 80cm dish in the kit should work fine there.

      Regards,

      Philip

    • CAN YOU RECEIVE ALL SPORTS & MOVIE CHANNELS LIKE (AUSTAR ???}

      Hi,

      No. VAST is a service designed to give you just the Australian free to air channels. It is not a pay TV service like Foxtel and Austar.

      Regards,

      Philip.

    • If we buy one of your systems can we use it in remote WA? Gascoyne River area?

      Yes. With the 80cm dish we provide, the home kits work everywhere.

      Regards,

      Philip

    • Hi we live in the bush trees all around us so the aerial doesn’t work, so would satellite TV be better

      Hi,

      Satellite still needs a clear line of sight and will not work through trees. Depending on your location the angle to the satellite differs.
      Have a look at dispointer.com that will give you a good indication whether the trees are a problem at your location.

      Regards,

      Philip

    • Ifwe install the satelite, can we get the free to air channels on all 3 tv's that we have in the house?

      Hi Lexia,

      With satellite, if you want to be able to change channels on all 3 TVs you would need 3 VAST boxes.

      Give one of our shops a call to discuss.

      Regards. Philip. Satplus VIC
