No longer do you have to forego your favourite TV programs just because you are in the remote outback!
You can use a domestic TV antenna and other hardware to get domestic TV in quite a lot of Australia, but the reception can be patchy and is plagued with interference. You are limited to local TV programming.
The alternative is a satellite-based system called VAST. This is NOT subscription TV. No monthly payments.
VAST TV gives you all the channels that you get at home on UHF high definition TV (such as ONE HD, GO!, ABC HD, SBS HD, 7 Mate, etc) plus many others in other parts of Australia, such as IMPARJA. Embedded in these stations are your usual favourite programs, from Channel 9, 7, 10 and the ABC etc from where you come from.
Once you have purchased the RTM/VAST outback TV kit, there is nothing else to pay, EVER!
Your RTM/VAST Kit comprises the following components:
• A 75cm (29") diameter satellite dish with removable amplifier arm, bubble level, wing nut, other hardware, etc
• Includes padded stowing bag
• A special amplifier to pull in the satellite signal, which attaches to the dish
• A sturdy galvanised steel tripod with a bubble spirit level. If the ground is uneven tent pegs are supplied to secure the tripod/dish assembly
• A map compass and special satellite meter to enable you to home in on the satellite signal. You will learn how to align the dish roughly from an instruction book. The meter is basically for fine tuning.
• All cabling, including 2m and 10m RG6 f-type connectors.
• A special VAST certified decoder box (similar to a Foxtel box but different) to interface between the dish and your TV. You can record from this box.
• A comprehensive installation/instruction manual written in clear English to guide you step-by-step through the procedure
Once you have set up the unit at your campsite, you can forget where you are and enjoy your telly as if you were at home!
