    German TV channels on Astra 19E satellite

    Our German faculty makes a lot of use of free to air digital channels ZDF, Kika & Prosieben broadcast on Astra 19E satellite. One teacher compiles weekly German news and current affairs items for use in class from these. Recently we seem to be having issues with these channels coming showing as scrambled at certain times now more frequently.
    Does anyone know if these channels have become encrypted recently needing a viewing card now?
    I tried scanning for them on 2 or 3 transponder frequencies given on Lyngsat.com but found nothing there at all. Have done a network scan on receiver but it hasn't found them FTA anywhere else so far and may have not shown up at all now. Just wondering if they have gone subscription or whether we have a receiver or dish issue that's giving us problems. If any one else receiving these ok could you let me know details of transponder frequencies you are receiving on and I can check what we are looking at.

    Regards Richard.

    ZDF is "apparently" still FTA, also available on Hot Bird (13 degrees East).
    ProSiebien is also available on Astra 23.5°E

    If you have a motorised dish they should be on your arc and easy to find.

    Thanks Chris
    We have 3 fixed , 1 is a dual LNB setup with 19E & 13E and another dish with 5W feeding multi-switches out to classrooms. Will have a route around on Hotbird see if we can find ZDF there then.
