MyTV Africa: Frequency, Satellite And How To Activate My TV Decoder

Mytv Africa was the second paid-tv service in Nigeria after the African leading digital tv provider (DStv). If you’re looking for affordable digital television services to subscribe without breaking banks, then it is the best choice for you. This post will guide you on installing or pointing the satellite dish to the Mytv Satellite position along with frequency, polarization, symbol rate, and channels list. 



My TV now offers subscription-FREE access to the content carried on its satellite-delivered Television service, serving English-speaking TV households across Nigeria and other countries.

 Broadcasts are encrypted for geographic rights concerns, and towards collecting an Annual Content Delivery Contribution currently set at NGN 3,500 per authorized receiving device.

 The service comprises a mix of Nigerian and international channels, with an emphasis on the African content. It can be received (in most places) on a standard 60cm parabolic antenna (dish)

My TV Smart is relayed by the BIS1 satellite (located at 51.5° East)

Accessing the service requires a duly activated My TV Smart Card and an advanced compliant security Conax or CDCAS Digital Satellite Receiver. Current models are SRT 4940 and SRT 497S, both High Definition-capable.
