AS from the first of this month, there has been a change of EWTN's satellite signal on Hot Bird in Europe with new technical specifications. The current satellite signal will be discontinued on Thursday.
To continue receiving EWTN, it is necessary to retune your satellite receiver to the new technical specifications before Thursday. No adjustment to the dish itself is required.
Contact an installer to have your receiver properly retuned so that you may continue receiving EWTN after Thursday. The installer will need the information below to install the new EWTN satellite signal:
