ABC Network Changes Modulation to professional mode.

The days of simply getting ABC  via C band satellite has ended. ABC has upgraded to a commercial modulation which only works with licensed commercial receivers costing $5000.00 or more.

While there’s some frustrating work around’s using expensive high powered computers, its no longer a simple task as point your remote at your receiver and click. Do you really want to watch TV on a small computer screen?

The same happened to CBS and ION a while back. The broadcasters continue to make changes to remove easy access to their distribution networks from c band FTA viewers.

Rainier Satellite never likes to see any content go away. We continue to look for easy viable solutions.

All is not lost.  Rainier Satellite offers two SIMPLE options for network programming. You can still enjoy your favorite shows on your BIG 60 inch TV!

1)  If you live in an area where local channels are available, all you need to do is put up one of our high gain TV antenna’s by Televes that work extra hard to get your local channels and networks such as ABC, CBS, PBS, FOX, ION and more.

2)  If you live in an area where getting OTA signals is next to impossible. Rainier offers the Toronto 4 pak on the 101 west satellite that carries the networks from Canada, that carry many of your favorite shows from the US.

Rainier Satellite continues to support your entertainment choices and keeps it simple.  Don’t have Rainier Satellite yet? Find out more by clicking on the button below. or Call 509-486-4137 with questions.

Exclusive c band distribution rights to 4 E-Scripps HD diginet’s.

Rainier Satellite has finalized our exclusive rights agreement to distribute to the backyard dish market four of the E-Scripps networks purchased from Katz Broadcasting in 2017. Uplinking of these networks in HD is actively testing on the 97 west satellite. These channels will be encrypting soon (just as ION recently did) and only be available to the backyard dish market via the Rainier subscription platform.

These networks will be available in both our starter package and blue packages. Rainier Satellite is pleased to have been able to work out this agreement with E-Scripps and become the leader in providing diginet’s to the backyard dish market.  Many c band dish owners are in remote area’s and not served by broadcast stations who carry these on a subchannel. Rainier Satellite is pleased to be able to fill this void. Rainier also offers these in Ultimate HD, not available with dot .2 over the air channels.
Official launch date to be announced soon.

FTA channels continue to diminish. Don’t be caught with a non usable fta receiver and dish.

Is your big dish living up to its full potential? Great News, Rainier Offers More!

Do  you own a big dish? Are you getting all you can out of it? If you don’t have Rainier your losing out.

Rainier is the key to great entertainment. We offer what No-One else can for C band. More Channels and More Great Entertainment Choices. If you currently have a FTA receiver your getting a handful of channels, most that you can get with an rooftop TV Antenna. Most free to air TV plays old reruns that are 40 to 50 years old over and over. Live sporting events that one time could be found in the clear are mostly scrambled today and no longer available. Feed finder website reports keep turning up the same message “ENCRYPTED”. Big Networks such as ION have scrambled, this trend continues. While the FTA offerings are shrinking the offerings from Rainier are growing.Another Great Reason to get Rainier!

GREAT NEWS! Rainier is now offering more Big Name Racing events.

FOX Sports and MAVTV have teamed up for full ARCA Racing Series television coverage.

Fans of the ARCA Racing Series will enjoy the most comprehensive television package in the storied history of the division in 2018. For years, FOX Sports has broadcast a handful of events, usually in conjunction with Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series weekends, leaving the action-packed short track stand-alone races with minimal coverage. In addition to those FOX Sports events, MAVTV has picked up 12 other races this season, 11 of them airing live on the all-motorsports cable network.

Eleven of the 12 races will be live on MAVTV this season, the second year of a three-year broadcast agreement with ARCA. The 2018 broadcast package includes the first superspeedway event scheduled for live coverage on the MAVTV Motorsports Network from Michigan International Speedway, Friday afternoon, June 8. Don’t Miss Out Get Rainier Today!

MAV-TV (one of Rainiers flagship networks) is offered in Ultimate HD on the 125 west satellite. Mav-TV is Encrypted and not available with a FTA receiver. MAVTV can be found in our Blue Package for only $19.99 a month.
