nimeona mtu anauliza fta ni nini ni kashangaa, all channels mnalipia sisi twapata fta, epl la ligha just name it, if you have the equipment all channels are free

etc zote zapatikana fta
najua hapa watu hawa click lakini hii mtaclick
look at all the available channels
FTA means Free To Air
What is free to air
Twende kazi
let me give you 2 scenarios
1- solar energy, its free, you just need to harness it,so what do you do, you get solar panels and a battery and all related accesories. your KPLC bill comes down
2- water. on your roof you can put gutters to harvest the rain water and direct it into a tank, kuna bill hapo? sasa twende fta
all communication satelites are 45000 kms above us and they are beaming tv and radio signals down to us.
thousands of satellites are up there sending signals onto your roof its up to you to harvest.
to harvest this channels you need a sat dish,(the bigger the better) and a decoder.
DSTV channels are encrypted coz its pay tv but they are not the only guys up there.
in our region east africa we have very many strong sats with thousands of fta channels which companies are bundling up in packages and selling to you
From Klost to Ktalk tumeongea hii gospel na wale waliskia wako free from pay tv
kama ni epl, la ligha, documenta
http://www.flysat.com/nilesat.php
http://www.flysat.com/e7east.php
http://www.flysat.com/amos5.php
http://www.flysat.com/is20.php
sasa kama ushaingia hapo ukaona zile channel waeza pata hebu nunua decoder ya strong SRT4922HD or openbox combo tukuonyeshe kuachana na hawa wezi, waaizi whatever.

@Meria Mata if you were to keep it super simple for me, tell me;

1. Estimated price for a full setup assuming I don't have anything. No dish, no decoder, nada. Just a rounded up rough estimate where you come in with everything and do the installation for me
2. Do the prices for installation/setup/equipment depend on my location? Say I want the thing setup in Muranga and a secondary connection in Syokimau. Would I pay different fees for each of the 2?

I know you can refer me to someone who does the job and has a quote after a survey .... etc but if its alright, I would like to know those 2 things from you.

130cm in nai is not sufficient to nab that beam you need atleast 160 cm offset and above the problem is that such dishes are not locally found ....
And did i get you right that you have the 20k meter?

The fta thing is a journey and the initial cost might be high hence i recommend you do it in phases ie unaeza nunua decoder this month dish next and so on
Once you get all your stuff then you can involve services of a expert installer bear in mind that location really matters and those south of equator need bigger dishes unlike those north of equator like lodwar and kakuma to access the europe b beam that has really premium content

over 90% of the channels people pay for are collected/harvested as free to air channels from various satellites...then put into one package, of-course after scrambling/encrypting then sold to users at a fee. why would some one charge cnn, bbc, france24, aljazeera, press tv, euro news,dw,cctv9, nhk, etc and they are freely & legally available via satellite platform? just get right fta unit & build ua own dish farm.
