Channels Lost? Rainier is bringing them back.

The Latest from the C Band Leader.

Rainier Satellite has received many phone calls and e-mails lately with the same question. I have a FTA receiver and were able to watch many Cable TV channels for a while that have now gone away, how can I get those back?

Unfortunately with a FTA receiver you can’t. These type of channels are distributed for Cable and DBS platforms and are required to be scrambled (protected) as per terms of licensing agreements. Some FTA dealers and forums hype up that these channels are free and make it seem they are intended for them as long as you buy their box. While this may seem fine to them, unless they specify that you cannot rely on these for continued entertainment they are lying to their customer. Only with a secured licensing agreement with the programmers, using  a scrambled signal and receiver capable of decoding them you can state the fact that these will be always available to view with a paid subscription. This is the only way one can insure cable programming is there for their receiver purchaser.

There are some FTA channels that are intended for free viewing unlike the cable channels. While there are no guarantees they will stick around forever,  (Rainier Satellite discloses this on our website) you can watch these also with Rainier’s D9865 receiver line. This gives you the best of both worlds, being able to subscribe to cable programming and watch these free channels all with one receiver.  No extra receiver is needed. Our receiver is the only one that can do this and truthfully claim that.

More about getting these cable channels back.

Rainier Satellite is working with many of the programmers that provide those channels you might have seen FTA for a short while, or subscribed to with your 4DTV before its shutdown. Many will be launching on our Full Arc Platform in PURE-HD in the upcoming months. This is great news for all who enjoy them and own a C band dish.

It Gets Even Better.

Rainier Satellite has secured 21 contracts with content providers to provide their services. We are currently working on some new low cost skinny bundle packs for cord cutters, ADD-ON premium services,  Gold mainstay packs, and even a full blown Get It All pack. Packages currently start as low as $10.42 a month.

Rainier Satellite is dedicated to making c-band great for all once more. Have Questions? feel free to give us a call at 509-486-4137 or drop us a line at customersupport@rainiersatellite.net

How many thousands of dollars have you spent looking for that FTA receiver that works right?


This is a question asked time and time again. You go out looking for the Holy Grail of FTA receivers. You pick up the newest and greatest model with it promising to give you bug free operation and low and behold once set up the problems start to manifest. You contact the dealer and they tell you we are aware of this and a software upgrade is coming out to fix this. You wait patiently, if the upgrade manifests your soon disappointed since it ends up causing you other problems, some you didn’t have before.

You call the dealer back, he strings you along, then drops the bomb… WERE SORRY BUT WE CAN’T SOLVE THIS PROBLEM AND WE ARE DISCONTINUING SUPPORT FOR THAT RECEIVER MODEL. Totally flabbergasted you start looking for a replacement. Then you notice the dealer you bought the discontinued supported model from is now offering a new model that promises you the Holy Grail once again. He promises this is it, and you need it. It’s a vicious circle. Truth is it’s not out there with these low priced off shore products that these FTA dealers sell. Only commercial grade U.S. supported models costing thousands of dollars intended for the formats they are designed for are bug free and work well all the time.

Enter Rainier Satellites D9865 satellite receiver. What’s different about it? Well the 9865 is a commercial grade satellite receiver intended to decode our PowerVu Subscription TV channels. But it has a plus; it’s also a commercial grade FTA receiver. It doesn’t suffer from the bugs that these low cost FTA receivers suffer from. It’s right out of the box and built with longevity in mind.

So you have to ask yourself, am I going to continue to play musical chairs with these cheap FTA receivers every time I turn around? or am I going to shell out the extra dollars needed and do it right once and for all to get a quality commercial product. Sit down and add up the thousands of $$$$ you have spent over the years on these throw away FTA boxes and find out your still at square one.

Get Rainier Satellites highly acclaimed D9865 Receiver and besides having enjoyable bug free FTA viewing you can also subscribe to the best HD available only from the C band masters, Only Rainier’s 9865 receiver can do both.

2017 the year of change for c band Satellite TV!


Just as the title says… 2017 it will be the year of change for c band satellite TV.  2016 left  many with unanswered questions. In 2016 we saw the shutdown of the old 4DTV HITS system. C band people relied on that services programming for their core of entertainment. As Programming Center and Skyvision got their walking papers from Comcast cable many big dish viewers were left out in the cold not knowing where to turn. Many are sitting in limbo not knowing what to do today.


Well things are about to change for the better because of Rainier Satellites dedication to C band.  Rainier Satellite has not been sitting around with our hands in our pockets as some may think. We’ve been busy working on our new expanded authorization system and acquiring more television content. This means more choices for you. It will start with adding our first few ADD-ON premium services in the first quarter of 2017. Also the long awaited Gold packs will be added in 2017. These packages will include many big name cable networks, many that have not been seen on C band for years. But that’s not all. Rainier Satellite is in the process working on using a special feature included behind the little front door on all of our D9865 series receivers to add even more programming content.

2017 will be a banner year to say the least. If your not part of the Excitement to come yet were only a few clicks away.


You can get a jump start on the 2017 excitement all in PURE HD by ordering Rainier Satellite Today!
