Tricolor TV "minus MPEG2
According to official information, the satellite operator "Tricolor TV", stops receiving payments from the owners of the equipment with the subscriber receivers, that support viewing of TV channels only in the MPEG-2 standard. Thus, at the beginning of the new 2018 year, Broadcast in the standard, It is likely to be discontinued.
Previously, the operator announced, that acceptance of payments from the owners receiver DRE-4000, DRE-5000, DRE-5001, DRS-7300 and the other receivers of the "first wave" is accepted only for six months, then - for three months and recently to renew your subscription to the package "One" could only be a month. In parallel, Without explaning the reason, operator "retroactively" to disable access to the package even paid subscriber receivers MPEG-2, forcing their owners to change equipment.
Recently, these subscribers will have access to a highly truncated package of "One" channel, which basically consisted of federal TV channels, which includes two digital terrestrial multiplex. But despite this many subscribers with obsolete equipment continued to use. Now, in the coming year they will have a choice - either to abandon satellite television in general or trade equipment with modern. Recall, that the base model for the exchange of a GS B533 receiver. The operator also offers exchange for technically obsolete receivers brand DTS-53/54.
Something happened, that should have happened. There is in all this positive aspects. In the first place it, that most of the MPEG2 terminals worked without replacement almost ten years. How criticized at the time the equipment and the GS DRE!
But there are also negative. Operator, instead of this spring to make the official announcement of the date of termination of the broadcast MPEG-2 decided to go the other way and still its Help Desk customers for a ride with such equipment. Repeatedly faced with such cases, when the MPEG-2 receiver with a paid subscription suddenly encodes and Help Desk offers its owners to contact the dealer or pass receiver for repair. Instead of, to be honest, that "the receiver contact offline. Exchange offer ". However, often a caller is not particularly bother and immediately buy air digital set-top box, and continues to look beyond the main air channels. already free. Until the next 'exchange'.
on BulgariaSat 1 It appeared there was a television
It's hard to say how long it will last, but if more than two weeks ago that the board could take a cue from the three carriers, but this time with a new spacecraft began broadcasting full package of channels on one frequency, which could accommodate more 30 tv channels.
However, This is not surprising because the patched. in this multiplex are no high-definition television. apparently, the promised programs in HD and UHD appear from this side later. In the meantime, at a frequency 12380 H goes broadcasting, ISP which serves Polaris Media Company of Serbia.
The package of broadcast TV channels mainly from the Republic of Serbia, in t. h. RTS 1 и RTS 2, and four Arena Sport channels, etc.. Present and Bulgarian channels, but they are few. Some of them broadcast openly: Ekids, Evrokom, Magic TV and several radio stations. The basic structure of the package is closed Bulcrypt conditional access system.
You should pay attention, which began broadcasting on the same frequency of the previously activated. Perhaps, this means that the provider from Serbia package here can be extended.
In spite of the fact, that viewers of the CIS countries, this position has little interest, We would expect from this point interesting news, and the owners of satellite reception system with a "little motor" can add this item to your receiver menu.
