Decoder Equipment
A satellite receiving dish and decoder is installed at each client's premises. Each decoder must be authorised before it will unscramble the encrypted transmission signal. Each decoder is pre-tuned in order to receive programming for which the client has been entitled. Where a customer wishes to receive both services simultaneously, a second decoder is required.

Sky Racing maintains extended hours for customer support. The customer support team will co-ordinate installation and maintenance of satellite receiving and decoder equipment as well as providing hotline assistance for technical difficulties.
