Digital Satellite Television

For satellite transmission, ARSAT-1 satellite provides Direct to Home (DTH) digital tv service in Ku band throughout the whole country, including the Antarctic bases and Islas Malvinas, and neighbouring countries.

We developed this satellite, among other features, to transport video signals for TV channels and provide direct-to-home television services (TDH), complementing the coverage of digital terrestrial TV.

Additional benefits that have been incorporated into Digital Open Television are the so-called:

  • EPG: Electronic Program Guide, which allows the viewer to know the contents of the video signals in advance.
  • Ginga: data channel to develop general interest applications such as weather, traffic, sports statistics, etc. and it will depend on the signal if it wants to carry out it, without being an obligation.
