Balcony direction for Indian Satellite TV dish antenna installation
The diagram above will help in determining in which direction the balcony and dish should be facing to receive Indian Satellite digital TV. The best direction for the balcony is to face the South side in most places in India. In India, the Airtel Digital TV satellite will be towards the South Western side and DishTV satellite direction will be to the South Eastern side. If the balcony is facing South, then you should be able to get one of the Indian DTH channels, either DishTV or Airtel TV or TataSky or SunTV.
The DishTV DTH direction of its satellite NSS-6 is at longitude 95 degrees East and over the equator. The Airtel DTH dish direction will be almost due south anywhere in India. In the Diagram at the top of this page, you can see the direction of DTH dish required for all the DTH services in India.
