Search and find Kabelio

For the Kabelio channels to appear in the list of programmes of your reception device, you must perform a channel search on your TV with built-in satellite reception or satellite receiver. To know exactly how this works, please check the operating instructions of your TV or satellite receiver.

For the manual search, you can use these parameters:

Satellite: Eutelsat Hotbird 13° Ost

Kabelio Main Frequency

Frequency: 11.096 MHz
Modulation: DVB-S2 8PSK
Polarisation: horizontal
Symbolrate: 30.000
FEC: 3/4

SRG-SSR Frequency TP 123

Frequency: 10.971 MHz
Modulation: DVB-S2 QPSK
Polarisation: horizontal
Symbolrate: 29.700
FEC: 2/3

France 2 HD Frequency

Frequency: 11.681 MHz
Modulation: DVB-S2 8PSK
Polarisation: horizontal
Symbolrate: 27.500
FEC: 3/4

After a successful channel search, you can detect the Kabelio channels in the list of channels of your reception device simply by their names. The Kabelio channels start with the suffix "Kabelio". I.e. for example Kabelio 3+ or Kabelio RTL CH.

You can find the France 2 channel in your list of channels without the suffix "Kabelio".
