[SAT-UK-CLUB]: Echostar DSB9800 Digital receiver
Does anybody know if Echostar are going to be launching the DSB 9800
digital receiver in the UK?
The following article appeared in What Satellite magazine in December
"Echostar will take its first steps into the UK digital market this
month when it unveils the DSB-9800, an MPEG-2 receiver equipped with an
Irdeto conditional access module. Available from mid December at
£499.00, it will have three scart sockets, an optional internal modem
and automatic C-band detection. The onscreen display will feature four
languages (plus English) and full EPG access".
However, I sent an e-mail to Echostar (SERVICE@ECHOSTAR.COM) recently
and they told me that the DSB9800 is designed for the Dutch and Italian
markets. Depending on who BSkyB choose as manufacturer, they will go
into the UK market (or not).
Is the DSB 9800 "SCPC" compatible?
So it would be interesting to know what they really plan to do. It
would seem strange if they do not launch a digital box in the UK, as
they are a fairly large player in the analogue market.
