    Default Very bad news for Pakistani's - MBC channels


    MBC channels will soon shift from frequency 11642 to 11919
    on BADR4 which is not receivable in Pakistan at 8 feet dish.
    Good things comes to those who wait.

    While i will admit i know nothing about your satellite services, I do know a bit about receiving them..
    what does a transponder change have to do with dish size or if a service is available or not.. Simply changeing a frequancy, should not affect reception capability of the dish, Unless they have changed the FEC to say 7/8, and this will affect the transmission on some smaller dishes.

    since the one they are to loose was on 8ft dish, now the new one not within their boundaries might need a 30ft dish , to get a cracking picture.

    Basset may be it is going in for a different beam or to the new Badr. So they are telling that they are going to loose it.

    Default MBC channels

    I am greatly disappointed and disheartened.MBC 2,3,4 were like a satellite jewels for me and lot of others...I dont know wat make MBC shift the channels to new freq. I strongly guess that Dish tv India and other local sattelite interests in the Indo-Pak may have forced the MBC to shift the channels 'cos MBC 2,3 were competing directly against Star world, Zee cafe , studio type of channels which are major source of revenue for the respective companies in the English speaking and understanding heart of Sub continent.

    By the way some one guide me why new freq of MBC is not vailable in Pakistan...Wat size and type of dish may be needed to watch them....Cogil Master I guess I wud not hesitate to built a 30 feet dish to watch them..I am so sentimental abt these channels..Now how wud I watch Dr. Phil, Oprah, Desires etc...

    I don't understand Arabic but the message which is
    appearing on almost quarter screen of mbc channels
    certainly states that tune new frequency because
    soon transmission on 11642 will be closed.

    Other frequencies of mbc channels are
    11766 and 11919 which has no signal at 8 feet
    dish. Other members may give reception reports.
    Good things comes to those who wait.

    If u can build 30 feet dish than its good for u
    because u will receive Astra 19,23 and 28 east
    which has far better hacked packages than mbc
