ChMax is one of the services offered by the Metamango platform. It is the latest technology for watching premium channels across many satellite packages without receiving a signal from the satellite dish. However, you need internet data to run Chmax smoothly.

Benefits of ChMax

You can access the satellite packages unavailable in your region even if you have a larger dish. For instance, it is tough here in Nigeria to access most European and Middle-East satellites, including Astra 19, Hotbird 13, Nilesat 7W, Eutelsat 16A, and others. With ChMax, you can have these satellite packages without having their signal. 

You can watch live sports, movies, documentaries, and news comfortably. The quality pictures quality is excellent. It gives more information about the channel you’re watching and loads each channel logo.

Note that the version of the forever server on your STB will determine the channels working on your receiver. Forever Pro has more channels working than regular Fshare servers.

Metamango Cloud services can manage your channel list without using a remote. You can add more STBs for the same channel list on a single account. Don’t forget to drop your comment below if face any challenges.

  1. I have not been able to register my mediastar mini ms2121 on metamango as it keeps saying that my last 4 stb serial number is incorrect. Any help please?

  2. The registration process is complex and it appears that is no support and guidance on the website.
    I have used three days without success. I registered with my email as well as my phone number. But they keep telling me I am not registered and that my email and phone number have been used. As it is I can’t proceed because I am stuck here. Any useful tips, please?

    • It seems your device serial number has been used before. You have to get a fresh email and serial number of supported device and try to register again. I hope it will work for you this time

  3. Thanks for your response. I finally did it, my device is now bound to the cloud but no channels updated. My forever is yet to expire but I noticed my Apollo account is out, could that be the reason?

  4. Have activate my chmax and have scan out channels but those chanel shows quality signal strength percentage but the chanel is saying no signal, what should I do

  5. I have successfully bound my the decoder to chmax but the channels did not updated I noticed if I play the Apollo is not playing

  6. Happy new year!
    Thanks for the great page and the useful advise. I have an inquiry please and would need your expert opinion.
    In the intro above “Metamango allows the user can view the channels via satellite when there is no internet.”
    My Apollo account is inactive and my connection is too slow and I was wondering if I can watch programs without an internet connection. My question is: Do I use the same setting you recommend above or do I need to do something different or additional? What about the scrambled channels? Do I need to do anything in particular?

    I’d really appreciate your response and insight. Thanks in advance.
