Looks like someone is trying to do the same in the USA. Most likely we'll see them come to life before FreeHD Canada ever does... so it's something to keep an eye on too!
There are estimated over 20 million free to air satellite receivers located in homes throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our intention is to take advantage of this massive viewer network lying dormant waiting for the product we are about to make available to them. The digital encryption method will run in the clear for all channels containing commercials. Receiver requirements are a digital satellite receiver. A card slot will be required to receive PPV broadcasts.
With factory software the following receivers should work.
Ariza, AZBox, Captive Works, Conaxsat, Coolsat, Drake, Dreambox, Fortec, GEOSat Pro, Icon, I-Link, K-Box, Neosat, NFusion, Pansat or clone, Silverbullet, Sonicview, Sonysat, Viewsat, XTC or any FCC approved FTA receiver.
Transmission foot print: North America, including Canada, United States and Mexico.
Transmission will begin with 18 to 20 digital channels in the clear, PPV sports, comedy, and other events will be announced (cards will be required for PPV) available from your local satellite dealer.
This organization is dedicated to the Free to Air Community. We appreciate all your support.
