Satellites and coverage, antennas, frequencies and transponders for tuning Continent TV
The satellite equipment was created on the basis of the Star-2 site, which includes 22 Ku-expansion transponders. Transponder beams are directed towards the Middle East, Indian Ocean and the Russian Federation (4 devices with a 36 MHz band). The satellite was launched into the sky on November 30, 2009 at approximately 12:00 am Moscow time. In geostationary orbit Intelsat-15, it replaced the outdated Intelsat 709. It is currently possible to receive channels belonging to Continent Television throughout the entire territory of the Russian Federation. For reception, it is required to purchase and mount a satellite dish with a circumference of 60 centimeters for the central region of the country and up to 1.5 meters in the outskirts of the country. Everything will depend on the location of the owner of the TV.

satellite TV broadcasting (Intelsat 15 and Horizons 2) is used. For example, throughout the Yekaterinburg region there is enough equipment in the “Supral 0.6” version, which is enough to ensure high-quality TV viewing. For reliable satellite signal reception in adverse weather conditions, it is possible to increase the antenna circumference up to 0.8 or 0.9 meters. In this case, on the territory of the city of Yekaterinburg, high-quality television signal reception will be 100% ensured under various weather conditions, including bad ones.

There is an opinion
I connected to it in 2018 through employees working in a representative office in the region – the Vector company: they came up, posed, no questions. They began when, after 1 month, the satellite broke down and the channels began to show for half a day.
Maxim, St. Petersburg
Our antenna was located on the roof of a country house. We calmly watch the same number of channels every day and without any problem situations and hassle.
Also became the “lucky” of this television. After the test, it shows 57 channels, pleases SPORT 1 hd.
