With the start of the switch off at DVB-T2, there are many Italians who have discovered that they do not own TV or decoder that can support the new digital terrestrial. Many, however, are very determined to move to the Tivùsat satellite platform. But can you access the latter even if you have a Sky antenna and system?
The answer is given directly by the official documentation of Tivùsat, in which it is highlighted that the answer is yes and that you only have to buy a decoder or a CAM Tivùsat. However, there are cases to consider, precisely because Sky systems are very different from each other.
If you own a My Sky HD decoder, the prompt is SCR/Unicable: in this case you need to buy a decoder or cam compatible with this standard.
If your decoder is Sky Q, then the system is dCSS type, and for this reason at the time of purchase you must inform the dealer that he will advise those that are the right models.
If you are looking for information on how to access Tivùsat, we refer you to our dedicated in-depth publication on these pages a few months ago: it is essential to have a properly oriented parabolic antenna.
