Important! When choosing an antenna, it is necessary to take into account the subscriber’s area of residence. So, for the main territory of the Russian Federation, a dish with a diameter of 0.6 m is suitable.In regions with a weak signal, for example, in Yakutia, Karelia, the Primorsky Territory, the Republic of Sakha and the Kaliningrad region, it is recommended to install a mirror with a larger diameter – 0.9 m.
When choosing between a set-top box and a CAM-module, pay attention to the technical characteristics of the TV. For TV devices with a built-in DVB-S2 receiver, we purchase the module itself, for all others – a set-top box. The number of set-top boxes / modules is directly proportional to the number of TVs.
Note! It is recommended to purchase installation equipment on the official MTS website https://sputnik.mts.ru/ or from the company’s dealers. Here all the subscriber’s data will be taken into account, and the most suitable kit or its elements will be selected. The price of a complete set is 3100 – 6400 rubles. Installation can be received as a gift.
Television broadcast from MTS is carried out thanks to the ABS-2A satellite, the coverage area of which covers the entire territory of the Russian Federation. Exceptions are Chukotka Autonomous Okrug and Kamchatka Territory.
