Re: New Spanish Channels - Tue 05 Apr 2005 03:21:PM

Well about time somebody will have a real pay tv company that will satisfy a huge population from Australia,I am refering to to the ethnic communities with good quality channels. The only problem is some of the ex tarbs boxes upthere and have been disconnected for a little while still do the encrypt channels when I recconect them,Like arabic and Turks,I think is about time U.B.I to upgrade right now before another people keep testing and by-passing the the card and watch everything for free..<br /><br />Regards Tracesat

Re: New Spanish Channels - Wed 06 Apr 2005 07:11:AM

Liski, this sounds great.<br /><br />I heard some time ago that Olisat was going to start trials in the middle of this year + SelectTV or I-view "plans" to start transmitting may or june as well.<br />How true these reports are is anyone's guess.<br /><br />If UBI can actually deliver on this promise soon, it is quite likely that a large part of the Spanish community will sign up with them thereby rendering the attempts of the other companies (at least at a spanish package) useless.<br /><br />The package sounds promesing UBI. Don't stuff up!

Re: New Spanish Channels - Tue 05 Apr 2005 11:32:PM

i like !!!! its good i mean I-view and UBI will now start competing for the Spansih Subs and this can only mean more channels For Spansih people as they try to out bid each other with more and more channels!!! 5 channels that cover everything Music, Entertainemtn ect.. is good Sports channel would be great too but i can;t ask too much !!1 24 hour movie channel is great

Re: New Spanish Channels - Mon 11 Apr 2005 12:46:PM

Re: New Spanish Channels - Fri 15 Apr 2005 06:07:PM

I was watching OBN this morning and then the channel stopped for a brief second and i saw a paused image of Telefe Int it had it the top right corner and then it quickly changed back to OBN...so im guessing UBI is doing something to bring them channels online asap

Re: New Spanish Channels - Fri 22 Apr 2005 02:20:AM

Looks like there's more Spanish people in Apsattv's backyard. At least he puts it up on his website and admits he may be incorrect after all:<br /><br />From Hans Versluys (Auckland, NZ)<br /><br /><br />Dear Craig,<br /><br />“UBI launching a 7 channel spanish package? just how many Spanish speaking people live in Australia?”<br /><br />You would be surprised at the number of requests we get for Spanish language programmes here in Auckland! There is a large expat Latin American population here and also quite a few people learning and wanting to learn Spanish. Unfortunately, we have never been able to source any reliably and cheaply (i.e. freely), so it’s a source of frustration for our viewers too. TVE is contractually unable to allow us re-broadcast of their news and any requests to TV Chile have fallen on deaf ears.<br /><br />If you have any suggestions, I’d welcome them.<br /><br />Best wishes from Auckland,<br />Hans Versluys<br />Director of Programming, Triangle Television<br />http://www.tritv.co.nz<br /><br />That doesn't mean they'll all subscribe either..

I understand spanish tv still for delay until begining of May , and I don't understand why ubi is showing " coming on april" even technical dep. doesn't know when exactly is coming up. At the moment is the focus on the new channel not spanish on the coming week.

Yes technical department mate.<br />or better say Frank Guneri, that sounds familiar to you?<br />Cheers

Re: New Spanish Channels - Sun 24 Apr 2005 09:56:AM

Frank Guneri is not in the UBI Technicial Department. He works for one of the UBI Preferred Installers as a Technician so he wouldn't know what happens within UBI.

Yes heaps cheaper.<br />Should be good when UBI get the Spanish channels up and running, but when the two transponders (4 carriers) are full thats what interest me next, it has to be new transponder time.<br />I wonder if they will get a full transponder cut in half ( around 26 Channels) or will they get on a half transponder to start with. Which ever they choose the public are in for a lot more channels..

Re: New Spanish Channels - Sun 08 May 2005 09:21:PM

Fibre if you read that other post with Press Release it says they signed with MCI for fibre capacity for up to 50 channels.<br /><br />As for the full transponder cut in half.. thats 27mhz a MAXIMUM of 16 channels if using very low bitrates (stat muxing)<br /><br />Sky NZ usually stick no more than 8 on theirs plus misc other bits and pieces, data,radio interactive.<br /><br />TVNZ are looking at 8 on each of their 2 half transponders.
