Cignal Digital TV Now Available Through Smart Wireless Centers
Cignal Digital TV is a Direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV provider in the Philippines alongside Dream Satellite TV and GSat Global. Dream and GSat offers Standard Definition (SD) Broadcast while Cignal offers SD and High Definition (HD) broadcast.
Cignal Digital TV is operated by MediaScape Philippines with office located in 9th floor of Jacinta Building 2 near the MMDA Guadalupe headquarters.
Currently Cignal offers 3 High Definition channels, Voom HD, History HD, and Disney Playhouse HD. All HD channels are delivered in 720p resolution. HD Pay Per View channels are also available (currently they offer it for free).
They have post-paid and pre-paid subscription plans. For SD you can avail of the PhP390/month package. For HD it’s Php450 per month and there’s no prepaid plan for HD. They also have the Cignal Combo which is combination of Cignal Digital TV plus the Cignal HD (20 DTV Channels + 3 HD Channels).
Cignal uses the NSS11 Satellite which is in 230 degrees South West orientation. This means your Satellite Dish must be pointed to 230 degrees South West at 67 degrees elevation. This is the same satellite GSat uses while Dream uses the Aguila II satellite.
Cignal TV is a great choice for Filipinos who wants to experience real digital TV broadcast and true HD broadcast. I’ve subscribed to Cignal DTV but I am yet to install my dish. I will do a more detailed review of their service once I get the service up and running.
You can avail of their services by calling their hotline at 02-890-1165 or by going to any Smart Wireless Centers.
Note: This is not a paid review of Cignal Digital TV nor a paid advertisement.
