Take a look at the following reasons to contact us to see the best way to do it.
If you need the steps to do something for your particular model of receiver:
This isn't the place to find those steps. We're not experts on every FTA receiver model in existance. Or even very many of them.
To find the answer, search the internet. You might find the manufacturer's site, which might have a manual available for download. You might find some discussion forums where folks who own your receiver model chat about what's possible with it and how to do it.
If you have a general problem with your FTA setup:
If none of that works for you, then send an email to
If you've found a channel that's not listed here:
That's great! There are always new channels popping up at unexpected times.
Just send an email to con
If you don't see a channel that is listed here:
First check that you can see other channels on the same satellite. Then you might
try a blind search to see whether the channel has changed PIDs or hopped over to a
different transponder. If you think it's really gone (it happens), then send an email to
If you know of a term that we ought to add to the Glossary page:
If you're dying to know right away what your term means, check
Wikipedia for it. If it's not there,
try searching the web for your term plus "definition". If you just want to add it, then
send an email to con
If you want to add a site to the FTA Links page:
First make sure that the site has nothing to do with piracy; FTAList never knowingly links
to any pirate site. If it passes that simple test and it has almost anything to do with FTA,
then send an email to con
If you find a mistake on FTAList:
We meant to do that. Well, maybe not, but there will frequently (always?) be some
errors on FTAList, and anything you can do to help us get a little better is appreciated.
Please send a friendly email to con
If you need help finding files or keys or other stuff to help you watch pay-TV without subscribing to it:
You are seriously in the wrong place! What you're talking about isn't FTA, it's piracy. If you live in the US and want to watch most Dish Network channels, call 1-800-333-3474. If you live in Canada and want to watch most Bell TV channels, call 1-888-759-3474.
Some advertisers may set a tracking cookie on your computer. The reason for the cookie is to make sure that if you visit an advertiser, then decide to buy something a few days later, FTAList still gets a commission. You may also see a cookie from a traffic measurement company, and FTAList might start using cookies to track your list-sorting preferences. These cookies are pretty standard and pretty benign. In the unlikely event that any advertiser starts misbehaving, please let us know so we can check it out.
(By the way, if you ever see a pop-up ad when you visit here, then your computer has a problem. It didn't come from us. We hate ads that pop up, slide in front, or do anything else that demands that you close it before you can get to what you want. Advertising pays the bills, but you, the visitor, are the reason FTAList exists.)
If you send an email to FTAList, that email will be stored along with all other site-related emails. Your email address and any other information you volunteer in a private email will never be sold, rented, or given to anyone else, except in the very unlikely event that FTAList is required by law to hand it over.
