Star Choice TV dish

Starchoice is Canada's second direct broadcast satellite television distributor (the other is Bell ExpressVu), and is majority-owned by cable TV operator Shaw Communications Inc. As of 2006, Star Choice had over 855, 000 subscribers. Star Choice broadcasts on Ku band from two communications satellites, Anik F1 at 107.3°W and Anik F2 at 111.1°W; these satellites are owned by Telesat Canada and otherwise are used primarily to distribute programming to various Canadian cable TV companies. Anik F1 carries most mainstream English-language programming; Anik F2 programming includes French-language and HDTV broadcasts.

TV Satellite Receivers

The system requires an elliptical antenna of at least 45x60cm in size with a special LNB pair built as one unit to accommodate the narrow 3.8° spacing between satellites. The satellite tv receiver uses the Motorola proprietary Digicipher II system which has so far been virtually free of the problems with pirate decryption that have plagued other providers such as rival Bell ExpressVu. The standard 18" DBS antennas used by other providers are not compatible with this system as the signals differ in both frequency and polarization, due to StarChoice being relayed via FSS satellites, Anik F1 and F2 in this case.
