Satellite Receivers
Home Up Sat Receivers Cables Mounts

Satellite TV 4 Boats has tested and used the full range of VAST Free to Air Receivers on the market today, and have settled on the following brands and models. We feel they offer the most featured and are suited for us on boats of all sizes.

SatKing - PVR

We have sold hundreds of this receiver, and have experienced no problems at all.  It is the standard model we now sell.  It offers a compact size, true 12vdc/240vac operation, IR Remote Extension, and low power usage. which are all so important on a boat. 

With true 12vdc operation, it is now possible to have a full 12vdc system on board, no need for an inverter or genset.

The IR Remote Extension allows the Satellite Receiver to be hidden away in a cupboard away from view, and a dry place, a another very important feature in a boat.

An optional USB Memory Stick or External 1GB Hard Disk Drive allows full PVR features. 

Main Features:


High definition MPEG-4 - Full HD Resolution and Audio when available
