Sky Italia is transmitted via the satellites Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0 ° East. Your satellite dish must be aligned to Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0 ° E.
If you have any questions or need technical assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Most satellite systems are aligned towards Astra 2 19.2 ° East and Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0 ° East.
As the Sky Italia receiver has no DiSEqC function, you must make sure that the Eutelsat Hot Bird 13 ° East amd input 1 (diseqc A #) is inserted.
It is necessary to change the inputs of your multi-switch (or diseqc switch). In general, input 1 (diseqc A) is used for Astra2 19.2 ° East and input 2 (diseqc B) for Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0 ° East.
With a Sky Italia receiver, the assignment of the inputs must be changed: Input 1 (diseqc A) is changed to Eutelsat Hot Bird 13.0 ° East and input 2 (diseqc B) towards Astra2 19.2 ° East. You can change this in the menu under settings.
# DiSEqC A = null (no switching pulse).

Unfortunately not. The Sky Italia Card will only work with an original Sky Italia Digibox. Similarly, a Sky Germany Card does not work with a Sky Italia Digibox.
