Free To Air
FTA or "Free To Air" simply means
that the signal is not encrypted. It is legal and free
to everyone who wants to watch it.
Just like using a radio to pick up radio
air waves, the FTA satellite signals can be picked up by anyone with the
equipment. Even better than the radio, you receive pure, clear, digital video.
And above all, there are no monthly fee or subscriptions, no contracts to
commit to, it is FREE, Free To Air.
Many video broadcasting networks use
FTA, to broadcast their programming to the public.
It is easier for them to use FTA satellites than to on local cable
companies. And they can use both television and radio channels. Many networks are geared
to target a specific audience, programs you will not find on subscription cable or
satellite; ethnic language channels, religious channels,
European news, documentaries, etc...
The FTA is dynamic, and
more and more FTA channels are appearing. Many networks are switching from
analog to digital because more people are buying smaller dishes verse the
old large 8 foot dishes.
