How to subscribe to c band channels? Rainier’s got the answer.

Its simple to get you up and running…

Many call Rainier Satellite wondering if the big dish in their yard is useful these days. The answer is YES!  C band is not dead as some think. There’s a world of excellent entertainment at a low monthly cost with the right equipment.

If you been out of the c band game for a while you need to be educated to today’s technology. Signals these days are digital. Analog is long gone. Depending how long you’ve been out of the game you either have an old analog receiver or a 4DTV. Both are just about useless anymore. While some functionality as a dish mover can be found using those antiques, it’s not recommended due to their age and high failure rate that comes with excessive age.

So what do I need to get up and running.?

At the minimum you need to at least update your receiver to our Cisco D9865 series. This will allow you to subscribe to our programming and be able to see any available freeview channels out there.

While you’re at it Rainier strongly recommends you replace your old receiver with our Mighty Mini series dish movers to move your dish. Their state of the art technology with one button satellite control make this a wise choice.

Rainier also recommends you look under the feed cover to get an idea if those electronics are up to today’s digital world tasks. Write down the brand of the LNB and feedhorn you have. Then give us a call at 509-486-4137 to speak with a knowledgeable person to analyze your situation and make recommendations for other equipment that might be needed.

Thank you for making our 2019 Anniversary sale a success!

The 2019 Rainier Satellite Anniversary sale has ended. It was an overall success as we welcomed many new folk into our Rainier Satellite family.

With the addition of some of the biggest networks to our Variety and new Variety Plus packages happening soon the time to buy at the low historic $499 price was a no brainier.  As Rainier would like to keep the price that low daily it’s financially impossible.

If you haven’t heard Rainier’s been working very hard to get you the big name content you want. We’re pleased to announce channel’s from A&E Networks, (A&E, History, Lifetime, FYI, Crimes & Investigation, …), Crown Media (Hallmark, Hallmark Movies, Hallmark Drama), Scripps, (Food Network, Cooking, DIY, HGTV, …), Viacom, (Comedy Central, TV Land, Nick, Teen Nick, CMT, MTV, MTV Classic, MTV Live, VH-1, …) NBCU, (USA, Bravo, Golf, Syfy, NBCSN, CNBC, …) and more are in the process of being added for our subscription TV service. They will be added one network plex at a time to our packages meeting programmer requirements.

If you missed out on our sale you don’t have to miss out on the best entertainment for your dish. As we sell our D9865H receiver at a lower 2019 daily price.

When ordering a new receiver its always a good time to add a new dish positioner. Old buggy units are problem prone. The last thing you want is to not be able to access the best entertainment due to an old mover failure. Rainier has the King of Movers to help fill the bill, our Mighty Mini Tracker line. With the announcement last year and recently of competitor positioner’s end of life the Mighty Mini is definitely the mover of choice. They’re in stock and won’t increase in price in the near future due to high tariff rates like with Chinese foreign made movers. We offer a full warranty and U.S. based phone tech support on this and all our products. We service what we sell.

Add the Mighty Mini Here!

Once again Rainier Satellite wishes to thank all those who make us possible. With your support we continue to grow, and able to bring the best products and entertainment available today.
