Satellite Hosting FAQ


Q- How does it work?

A- You send us, or have your network send us, the satellite receiver that has been authorized for the programming you wish to receive.  We provide the signal from the satellite dish, encode the audio and transport it over the internet to your studios.  We send you a decoder that you connect to your broadband internet connection.  The decoder at your studios provides the audio feed to your automation system or console for air.


Q- What if my satellite feed has cue relays associated with it?

A- No problem.  We will provide you with a cue relay panel that will pass along the cues from the network, just as if you had the receiver right at your own studio.


Q- I need to change programs on my receiver from time to time.  How do I do that?

A- Easy.  Your receiver will be connected to the internet which will allow you to make changes in its configuration remotely.
