Viewsat FTA receiver's allow you to exchange your monthly bill for free satellite TV service. The Viewsat VS 2000 Ultra receiver works with your pre-existing satellite equipment to acquire the FTA or free-to-air TV channels transmitted without any encryption methods. FTA equipment installs in the same manner as standard satellite equipment and you can be watching your free TV in just a few steps.

Fasten one end of the coaxial cable to the port on the wall outlet associated with your satellite dish.
