Simple Steps to Satellite Reception
Question: I cannot get Vision on my radio, what do I do?
Answer: If you’re in an area we don’t cover, or experience reception problems and would like a crystal clear signal 24/7, you can listen directly from the satellite. Vision is available nationally, direct from satellite using a receiver (also commonly called a ‘decoder’ or ‘set top box’) and dish.
Question: I don’t have a receiver, decoder or dish. What now?
Answer: You'll need to get some equipment to access our satellite feed(s). The good news is that the cost of satellite reception equipment has fallen dramatically in recent years, with dishes a common sight in Australia and worldwide so talk to your local TV antenna and satellite service suppliers.
If getting satellite equipment is not a viable option for you, Vision is also streamed live via the internet or through our free app for selected smartphones, tablets and e-readers.
Question: I have a dish on my house; how do I get reception?
Answer: You may be ready to tune in right now. If you get Christian TV channels like TBN or GOD TV, all you need to do is change the channel—grab your remote, select ‘radio’ and then scroll through the channels until you find ‘UCB Radio’ or ‘UCB Australia’.
If you don’t get Christian TV channels like TBN or GOD TV you will not be able to get Vision Radio, unless you employ a local TV antenna and satellite serviceman to re-align your dish, doing this means you’ll lose all your current channels.
If you have equipment already installed that you no longer use, you could get the dish re-aligned and tune in.
