Those who are part of Single Registration for Social Programs of the Federal Government, that is, you already have the registration, you can obtain a series of benefits, among them the Digital Antenna Kit. Initially, the idea is that the reception kits guarantee the most modern technology for image and audio compression, guaranteeing more quality.
The service was boosted with the arrival of 5G in the country’s capitals, as the new technology improved the television channels of those registered in the program. Thus, beneficiaries who have access to open TV with a satellite dish will be able to migrate to this new experience.
The expectation is that the quality of images and sounds in open channels will be even higher, without going through any interference. The program, which has the support of the Federal Government and the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel), is called “Siga Antenado”.
As already mentioned, to receive the Digital Antenna Kitthe citizen must be registered in the CadUnique of the Federal Government, in addition to using the conventional satellite dish. According to information from the Government, it is through it that the signal of open channels is transmitted via satellite.
However, it is important to note that with the release of 5G in Brazil, a change must take place in the transmission signals. At first, the change will occur from C Band TV to KU Band. Thus, for an improvement in image and sound to actually occur, a switch to more modern equipment must take place. Namely, low-income families should not worry, as they will receive the kit.
the installation of Digital Antenna Kit will be free. However, if the citizen’s house already uses a digital antenna, in the “fishbone” format, it will not be necessary to make the exchange.
