Default ATN Bangla / nTV / Channel-I / RTV now in North America

Just read on Thikana newspaper that ATN Bangla is going to start their transmission on Dishnetwork all over USA from Apri 1st. First one month is free preview month. Then $19.99/month subscription fee. I don't think ATN shows that much cricket stuff, but at least we will news more quickly

NTV is also starting their operation from May (that was the news few months back). But don't know if they will be on dishnetwork or not.

New stuff:
On Dishnetwork Sat 121:
1. nTV on channel 804
2. RTV on channel 805 (coming soon on End of Nov 2006)
3. Channel-I on 806
4. ATN (forgot the channel number)

Jubaitca:
ATN news is on back page this week Thikana newspaper. If you are dishnetwork customer you will see this channel on your channel guide from April 1. It will be free for 1 month.

NTV news was on another paper few months back. BTV World info is from a newspaper from BD. I am not sure whether NTV and BTV will be on dishnetwork or not.

Ad says, there will bd actors and singers on the ceremony.

what is the status of ATN Bangla on Dish? I just called the Dish people and as usual they knew nothing as the script they were reading didn't have any reference to ATN Bangla. Are the channel numbers across different states the same - if so can anyone post the ATN Bangla channel number here when they find it? thanks

There are 2 new paki channel (GeoTV and AryDigital) on dishnet. They started it on March. I am hopeful about atn.

Default On TelStar 5 (IntelSat Americas 5)

Well, newspaper said they had a good opening ceremony. But there is no news on who will be the service provider. Dishnetwork still doesn't have ATN Bangla on their channel line up.

I did some digging. It turns out that ATN Bangla is using TelStar 5 satellite on Ku Band. It is currently on FTA (free to air), meaning no subscription needed. I don't know how long they will be on FTA, but the initial report that they will be on dishnetwork is now doubtful.

TelStar 5 (also known as IntelSat Americas 5) signal is avialable all over USA/Canada with a 20"-30" dish. You will need FTA receiver and the dish to get your tv.

Here is the TelStar5 channel lineup info:
http://www.lyngsat.com/ia5.shtml

Scroll down and you will see ATN Bangla.
The beige colored channels are FTA (digital). Interestingly, TEN Sports is broadcasting the IND/PAK tests on this satellite and its FTA! I am not sure if TENSports had always been FTA on TelStar 5. But its pretty intersting that dishnet is selling the package for $$$ while it is in the sky for FREE!!!.

List of all channels from BD (includes US and non-US viewable channel):
http://www.lyngsat.com/freetv/Bangladesh.shtml

[Edited on 1-4-2004 by nasif]

As of now, ATN Bangla is no longer FTA (meaning its no longer free)

You can get FTA receiver on ebay for around $50-$100, make sure it works on Ku Band. The Ku dish is avialble at any of your local sat store. You can buy it on ebay also. Mounting it on your roof or wall is hard, unless you are good with tools (and have the tools to mount it). Even if you had the tools you won't be able to get signal unless you had familiarity with locking on sat signal. So you gotta get a pro to install it. Installation costs around $100 buck.

Ku dish isn't like the one that you usually see (huge dish on the roof, which is known as C-band). Here is a pic of Ku dish:


To learn about FTA tv, just type "ku fta dish" on google. You will see lots of online store that sells FTA equipment.

Before you go and start buying the equipment, you might want to wait a month of so, to make sure ATN stays FTA. Its likely that they might switch to paytv after a month.

The previous tenant (chinese) put a Ku dish on our roof. They left last month, but the mounting pole is still there (took the dish though ).

I use dishnet now and was hoping that atn would come on dishnet.

That's right, there's no ATN on Dish. Instead, they have 2 new Pak channels on preview. When I switched one on last night some talk show host was interviewing 3 moulanas from Wazirstan or wherever the military action was taking place. It made for riveting TV indeed.

Its not 2, its 3 new pak channels. AryDigital, AryOne and GeoTV (AryOne is on 121 sat). That makes 4 paki channels with PTVPrime.

We don't have 1, while pakis have 4. This just sucks

Good news here .
nTV started their broadcast in North America with the biggest home satellite service provider in US, Dishnetwork. Unlike ATN Bangla, which is using GlobeCast (crappy provider), nTV chose dishnetwork for their transmission. Which I think was on the spot!

Dishnetwork is the biggest provider of "desi" TV in north america with Zee, Sony, B4U, Ary and many other desi channels. Its great to see first BD channel on dishnet. There is already big bangladeshi customer base with dishnetwork. I guess they will get higher customer much quickly than ATN

Subscription is $14.99 per month (cheaper than ATN, which is $19.99 per month).

I have watched ATN, their transmission on Globecast is very poor due to very low bandwidth (probably paid very little). You will see huge pixels with even little to moderate motion video :duh: . In that regard nTV's video quality is excellent, no pixels here

Hopefully other BD tv will join dishnet soon. May be next is our good old BTV

nasif, you seem to have so much info. on these. Do you have any idea if we will see ATN or NTV online, somewhat like the way see Channel I via jumptv? To me, that is more attractive as I am in front of computer most of the day and hardly have any time to watch TV.

Nasif,
Are you already started watching NTV on Dish Network?
Does it require Super Dish or Dish 500 is ok?
There is not much info in the website.
Thanks.

It requires superdish, So you need a new one or replace what you have. But what I want to know is how much cricket is available. I don't want to spend it on non-sports programmes. And you will be asked to sign up for a year.

It cost me around $99 bucks when I signed up for the international program. It does require a superdish. Anyway, question to Oracle bahi how do you know you will be asked to sign up for a year. I am just wondering because last time I sign up for ARY digital and then cancel it the next month.
