It sounds like another Orby TV. Even cheaper, only $60 USD for the receiver and $25 USD/month to subscribe.

And they are cramming a ton of hevc channels into a 49,000 symbol rate transponder.

Bad news for DirecTV Caribbean and Dish Puerto Rico. Are these guys still using mpeg2 and 20,000 symbol rates? :lol:

Good news for consumers!!

If anyone is in the southern USA or Mexico or Caribbean, please log their transport stream and let us know some technical details like bit rate for their HD hevc channels and how the picture quality looks. I'm sure many will be interested. Will give it a try if I have time.

I can't lock these so I can't comment on them, but it was reported at Rick's that there is quite a bit more content on 67w. At least 3 muxes.

11800 H 49000
DVB-S2X 8psk
FEC 13/18

11860 H 49000
DVB-S2X 8psk
FEC 13/18

11920 H 49000
DVB-S2X 8psk
FEC 13/18

Stingray music channels are FTA in the 11920 mux.
