Satellite TV viewers may need to re tune if they use the Turksat satellite to watch TV.

If you use the popular twin dish system to pick up TV programmes via satellite in Turkey you may need to re tune this week.

A new satellite called Turksat 3 has just been brought into action this week at 42 degrees East.

Many users won’t need to do anything technical to re tune as the satellite provider will broadcast a signal that will trigger many receivers to automatically update.

However, if your receiver won’t automatically update or fails to hear the command you’ll either need to retune yourself or get someone in who can.

Turkish TV viewers prefer the Turksat satellite for their TV stations as it provides a large number of Turkish language channels that are free to air.
