Big Dish Owners. Get on Board with the Magic of Rainier Today!

The 2018 Statistics are in. And the trophy goes to Rainier!

As 2018 draws to a close their were gains and losses, and Rainier takes the trophy for 2018. Depending on where you get your entertainment from, you either moved forward or fell behind when it came to channel count and choices. If you were a Rainier subscriber you gained 116% viewing choices. If you were a FTA viewer you lost over 75% of your choices.  While Rainier channel count increased. (We added 16 new channels) FTA lost over 75 due to discontinuation of signals or encryption.

While FTA dealers continue to try to stimulate their sales with introduction of different same old foreign country target use boxes with different wrappers and gimmicks, they have one thing in common. These continue to offer the same dwindling list of FTA satellite viewing choices with nothing new. Projections from inside industry sources show this content loss trend will continue in 2019.

If your still with FTA its time you need to ask yourself an important question. Do I continue on with a losing trend, or do I go with the clear winner and get on board with Rainier.

Rainier continues to grow with the launch of our new Variety pak which includes two premium movie channels from Sony in Ultimate HD. But that’s not all. Variety is launching even more great cable content for you at no extra cost in 2019.  It’s really a no brainier. It’s time to go with the proven winner.

Join Rainier today and fill your big dish up with the quality cable content you deserve at a low monthly cost. Once you’re on board you’ll never look back.

Rainier Satellite… Were the Future Of C Band!

Rainier to begin sales of our own in house brand dish mover controllers soon.


As Rainier Satellite with its Exclusive big dish Subscription TV content continues to grow. Rainier must be able to keep up with the demand of hardware needed for its current and future subscribers. Dish movers (controllers) are an integral part of the C band dish system. Lately sources for good product has dried up.  With many big name network contracts on the table waiting for finalization Rainier needed good movers fast. After sitting down with manufactures and our technical department to work out the details, Rainier is pleased to announce we will be rolling out our own line of movers (controllers) at our Webstore in the near future.

“This couldn’t happen at a better time” says Robert Scharmann, Rainier’s president. “We’ve been thinking about bringing out our own line of dish controllers for some time. With the expansion of our programming lineup as many new contracts are nearing finalization, there will be an in rush soon of new subscribers. Many have dishes idle for years that will need new hardware upgrades to grab all those new HD signals Rainier will be offering. I’m  pleased that Rainier was able to get this hurdle quickly taken care of.”

In Search of the Best Stand Alone Satellite Dish Mover.

Rainier Satellite is proud to announce we are now a dealer for and selling the Best Quality solid well built, bug free mover made today, the Pansat AP 600.

AP 600

We have tested them all, from the low cost V box 7, V box II, and all the off names of the V box family.  To the high cost Titanium ASC-1, They all fell short of the quality and robustness we were looking for.

The V Box family had issues, it failed in cold climates,  under continuous use, or moving  8 foot larger, or heavier dishes. We could not settle or justify selling a product to our customers with these multiple issues.

We also tested the Titanium ASC-1 but were quickly disappointed  by its problems. Most noted its runaway motor control, (it quickly runs your dish to the end of its travel by itself when an incorrect key is pushed, or senses something incorrectly) This is dangerous, and can ruin dishes (dish flip) and actuators (bent arms).   Other bugs and problems cropped up too, too many to mention here.  Once again, we  were just not satisfied with it nor could endorse,  or sell a product like this to our customers.

We needed something that was guaranteed to work well under all conditions and not buggy for our customers. We took the same into consideration when finding a receiver for our services.  It must work and work well, this is our goal. Rainier Satellite prides itself on selling only quality fully tested products.

So what was Left?

We needed a product that would  work as well as the 4DTV or other  quality built C band satellite receivers tracker did, bug free. Well the AP 600 actually does just that. It performs flawless, and is bug free. We are very happy with its solid robust performance.

If you look under the AP 600’s hood its build on the old school  electronic design just like the old satellite receivers which worked so well.

(AP-600 below)

AP-600 Inside. Notice the High Amperage Transformer and spaced out parts design layout. This layout provides cooler running operation for long life.

Its a breath of fresh air to see something built with the old school  design quality (AP-600) and integrity that served C band so well for many years.

Everything today seems to be based on low cost cheap robotic sub-mini design. (ASC-1 example below)

ASC-1 robotic sub-mini cramped parts design. This design is prone to heat issues.

Or uses cheap underrated parts like the V Box family. Inside the V-Box models you can see the cheaply made poor design with its under rated transformer.
