UWTV retransmission

UWTV offers its programming for retransmission free of charge upon registration. Just follow these three easy steps:

  1. Review our transmission policies.
  2. Confirm you are in the reception area.
  3. Register with us.

Step 1: Review our transmission policies

  • Maximum and minimum number of hours you can retransmit UWTV
    • The maximum is continuously, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
    • The minimum is at least one continuous four-hour block of programming per week.
  • Recording and time-shifting of programming
    • No recording or time-shifting is allowed. UWTV’s schedule is posted online and in on-screen and printed television guides. Time-shifting would create confusion and would not coordinate with the posted schedules.
  • Your station identification
    • UWTV requires that the transmitted signal be carried as a whole. It is recommended that station breaks occur before and after the transmitted programming blocks.
  • Break-ins for specials or commercials
    • Specials: Stations can break into a UWTV programming block for local specials provided the break occurs before a UWTV program begins or after the completion of a program.
    • Commercials: UWTV is a noncommercial programming service and prohibits the insertion of commercials within programming blocks.
  • Switching to a UWTV block at the correct time while using an automated system
    • UWTV uses the GPS clock system, and you can synchronize your system with it to ensure switching at the correct time.

Step 2: UWTV reception area

UWTV is available across North America by satellite downlink on Intelsat Galaxy 18. We recommend a 1.2M or larger dish capable of receiving a Ku-band digital signal from G-18 as well as a DVB-S2/MPEG-4 compliant receiver.
