Channel packages
About channel packages
Satellites can offer channel packages that bundle free channels
(free-to-air) and offer a sorting that suits a country. Some
satellites offer subscription packages - a collection of channels
you pay for.
If you choose a subscription package, the TV might ask you to
select a Quick or Full installation. Select Quick to install the
channels of the package only or select Full to install the
package and all other available channels too. We recommend a
Quick installation for subscription packages. If you have
additional satellites that are not part of your subscription
package, we recommend a Full installation. All installed
channels are put in the channels list All.
Update channel package
With Update channel package, you can bring back satellite
channels that were in the satellite channel list before but are
now missing. The missing channels were repositioned on the
transponder by the satellite operator. The TV must be

    I bought this model about a month ago and now it's giving me problem when i'm trying to upgrade the software via internet connection​. This message telling me to remove any USB connection kept bugging me in which i actually did.

    How can u help me with this?
