How to receive DD Free Dish / DD Direct Plus and Dish TV free channels on a single dish

Updated: 29 May 2015.

How to receive DD Free Dish / DD Direct Plus and Dish TV free to air free channels on a single dish.

DD Free Dish comes on Insat 4B which is located at 93.5 degrees East. Dish TV free to air / free channels comes on NSS 6 which is located at 95 degrees East. If we keep the Dish in middle around 94 degrees we will get both DD Free Dish and Dish Tv. This is how Dish TV installers fix Dish TV dishes so as to enable Dish TV viewers to get DD Free Dish. So we will also do the same to get Dish TV free to air / free channels.

If your Dish is already fixed on DD Free Dish, then Slightly move your dish very very little East and decrease the elevation very little and try to get the frequency 12110 H 40700. There are few more frequencies having 1 or 2 free to air channels like Zee Tamil, ETc, etc.,. Once you get the 12110 H 40700 frequency check whether you are able to get frequency 11570 V 28500 of DD Free Dish. If it is not coming slightly move to west to get it back. It is matter of sacrificing signal on both the satellites in order to receive both of them.

The weakest frequency on is 11570 V 28500.
Zee Tamil frequency on Dish TV 12595 V 40700.
ZEE PUNJAB HARYANA HIMACHAL on Dish TV 12690 V 27500.

Try to get all these 3 frequencies as well. On a particular position you will be able to get both Dish TV and DD Free Dish and it is very easy if you do it practically. Watch Dish TV free to air / free channels along with DD Free Dish all the best. If you face any difficulties feel free to ask here I will try to reply here in order to help you.

  17. Sripada Siva Kumara,

    Thank you very much for your excellent info and website on DD Free Dish/Dish TV. After 2008 I upgraded my DD Free Dish & LNB to a Dish TV Made Dish & LNB facing DD Free Dish Satellite and Dish TV Satellite on 09-04-2015 done by a Dish TV Technician Installer. Now I am getting all channels with superb clarity with Signal Levels after 36 meter cable from LNB to Receiver. Most Signals are coming with 70% intensity and 80% quality.

    However the aligning of Dish to both satellites has to be done with a satellite signal meter which Dish TV installers carry. My advise for future buyers of DD Free Dish is to get a Dish TV Installers Number and ask him to do the work for you. Don't attempt to buy everything on your own and do it as quality of dishes vary considerable.

    Also it is better to opt for Dish TV Basic SD/ Box with remote as compared to Open market DD MPEG-4 Boxes since the Dish TV Box has better circuit and signal levels would be higher. The Dish TV Installer told me that the Dish TV Receiver with Viewing Card would work with DD Free Dish Signals & Dish TV Signals. Only for paid channels the signal would not come. The cost that I paid is below mentioned. Dish TV Basic SD Package new connections costs Rs 1550/- with one month free subscriptions. The channels which are coming free would cost Rs 240 per month on the Dish TV Basic Platform for North India.

    1-Dish TV Dish+Tripod Mount[Including Nuts, Bolts,Washers etc]Rs 530/-
    2-Dish TV Normal LNB-Rs 200/- [Second Hand LNB Rs 100/-]
    3-Kalinga RG-6 White Coaxial Cable 36 Metres @ Rs 12/- Per Meter=Rs 432/-
    4-F Connectors Dish TV type 5 Used @ Rs 20/- each=Rs 100/-
    5-Labour Charges-Rs 250/

    Total Cost Paid Rs 1512/- At Rs 240 per month cost recovered in 6.3 Months.

  18. Sripada Sivakumara,

    By All means you can put a page along with your/mine name with this suggestion.

  31. There are no Ku band channels on Asiasat 3s. For getting ABS 2 which is at 75E and Insat 4B is at 93.5E. So you cannot both the satellite on a same dish. You need another Ku band small 60cms dish with LNB and a Diseqc switch to get those. If you are in North India you can get many channels but if you are in South India then only some channels available.

    You need another Ku band small 60cms dish with LNB and a Diseqc switch to get ABS 2.

  38. You can slightly reduce elevation of the dish to get more signal quality from it. 12110 is a strong frequency but other frequencies are weaker that is why you are not getting. If you slightly adjust the dish elevation you will get all the channels.

    Software upgrade is not available for any of our FTA stbs. So it will time out.

  42. Sir, I am going to buy a DD direct plus for my home. I also want dish tv FTA channels. Is there any monthly subscription? Also let us know what is the procedure and requirements for installing dd direct with dish tv.

  43. DD Direct Plus is free and no subscriptions needed. Dish TV free channels will come once you add those frequencies. If it doesn't come then slight dish adjustment needed like I mentioned.

  44. Dear Sir,
    I have Dish TV antenna and Set top box from DishTV SD, I don't want to see Dish TV anymore, just like watch DD Free Dish chennals , what I have to do? can I use same dish antenna and set top box?
    do I need any card? from where I can get it?
    thank you Shiva Kumar ji

  45. Just buy one fta stb which may cost around 600 to 800 rupees and connect it instead of Dish TV stb. You will get DD Free Dish channels. Dish TV stb cannot be used as they are locked.

  46. Thank Sivakumar ji,
    would you suggest any good FTA stb? dish antenna and other wire can be used from what I have? I want save money and save planet from more toxic pollution, not too buy extra gadgets to waste contribute in toxic for earth!
    Thank you!

  47. You don't need to buy new dish or lnb or cable. Just buy one fta stb from the market. MPEG 2 stbs are cheap. You can get any brand more or less all are same. Melbon, Betal etc.,. are there. You can also go for HD stbs which are not needed at present but in future if DD adds DVBS2 channels you may need it.

  48. brother i am using dishtv sd connection, in my stb all dd channels are showing "No Signal" message please help me to get dd channels

  49. Shivakumar ji,
    if we are able to watch this in FTA stb…..

  55. If you are already getting DD Free Dish then, add the frequency 12595 V 43200. If no signal then slightly adjust the dish towards east little and signal will come. This is a weaker frequency.

  56. when I have add 12595 H 43200, 22kon in lnb10600 the signal power will get 89% & the signal quality is 35% also add 2or3 channels like jivi shopp and active music icon but i did not get zee tamil tv even the name list of tv. I am asking to u can i add zee tamil frequency only. when i add lnb 10600 22k on search ALL in auto scan I got and also add all free and scrambled channels list except zee tamil name . I tried maximum dish alignment. in before the issue i saw zee tamil channel, my issue is very peculiar , can i want to change the placement of dish, or the lnb will gone weak.
    kindly add kids channel, and also sports. tamil news channels.
    Especially convey to our feedback above said and increase the signal strength of zee tamil frequency

  57. You can try few options. Edit some channel in the frequency 12595 H 43200 and change its PID to Zee Tamil. Change the VPID to 4017, APID 4018, SID 33065, TID 100, NID 1. PCR PID is 4017, PMT 4016. If still it doesnt work then try resetting the STB.

  58. thank u for your reply, I already set with vpid, apid, but didnot save zee tamil channel,and also set stb default settings . now I am asking to u can I connect with sun or any other dish with LNB WITH MY FTA STB, Is it will support or not.
