What is Orby TV?
Orby is a satellite TV service that offers a solid channel lineup at a low cost with no hidden fees or taxes. Simply order your service, schedule your installation (or go DIY), buy the receiver box, and you’re good to go.
Do I need internet service for Orby TV?
No, you don’t need internet service to use Orby TV. Orby TV is a satellite system that needs only a dish connection and a receiver box. Orby’s receiver comes in two flavors: standard and with built-in DVR capabilities.
How much are Orby TV prices?
Orby TV prices start at $40 per month for 46 channels (not including local channels). You can add premium channels like HBO or STARZ for an additional monthly fee.
Can I install Orby TV myself?
Yes, you can install Orby TV yourself. But Orby recommends that you use a professional technician to make sure everything goes right. Most people don’t have the tools or the know-how to install a satellite dish and run wires through the walls to the desired room. Professional installation costs $150 plus $50 for each additional room, in addition to the price of the Orby receiver. If you choose to DIY, you’ll purchase a self-installation package for $70, which comes with the dish, antenna, and mounting equipment. But if you go this route, you’ll still need to pick up a coaxial cable and an Orby receiver, which will add about $120 to your upfront cost.
What channels do you get with Orby TV?
Orby has a decent selection of some of the bigger channel names in cable TV, including HISTORY, Nickelodeon, TNT, Food Network, BET, A&E, CNN, and more. Check out Orby’s full channel lineup.
Can I tailgate with Orby TV or watch Orby TV in an RV?
You can bring Orby TV with you in an RV or while tailgating, but you’ll need to reposition the satellite dish to a precise location every time you set up camp. It won’t work in motion. For more information, check out Satellite TV for your RV.
Do you need a satellite dish for Orby TV?
Yes, you will need a satellite dish installed on your home to get Orby TV. The Orby TV dish is about the same size as DIRECTV or DISH satellite dishes—27 inches by 18 inches. If you have an old dish from another company installed on your home, you cannot use it with Orby TV.
But the installer may be able to remove the old dish and install the Orby TV dish on the same mount. Orby TV recommends having the dish professionally installed, although Orby TV does offer a self-install option (primarily used by people who’ve had a lot of satellite TV experience).
How does Orby TV work?
Orby TV works like other satellite TV services: a dish on the exterior of your home picks up the satellite signals, and a coaxial cable runs from the satellite dish through the walls of your house to your Orby TV receiver or Orby TV DVR. An Orby TV installation package also includes a digital TV antenna, which attaches to the satellite dish. The digital TV antenna gives you free local stations (even if you turn off your Orby TV subscription for the month).
