Your Shaw Direct satellite TV service requires two main pieces of equipment – a satellite dish outside and a satellite receiver inside your home.
Positioned on the end of your satellite dish is a piece called LNB. Depending on the type of LNB, you may be receiving a signal from one, two, or all three satellites.
Since 2012, all LNBs deployed have been xKu. This type of LNB receives a signal from all three satellites. All customers will require xKu by September 2019 in order to keep their channels.
