Tune Into Cape Town

 To tune your TV set to pick up CTV, use the remote control unit to open up the Menu of the set.

  1. Go to the Setup menu.
  2. Do a channel scan – the TV set will automatically scan all of the channels it receives. This will take a few minutes.
  3. When the channel scan is completed the set should display all of the channels available – you will then be able to switch between channels using the channel buttons on the remote control or on the set itself.
  4. If you still have problems picking up the channel, call Sentech on 021 525 3601 for assistance.
  5. The transmission is from Sentech's Tygerberg mast, so your outdoor aerial should point to Tygerberg mountain.
If you are a DSTV subscriber, tune in to channel 263. You'll find it on the Easy View, Access, Family, Compact, Extra & Premium packages.
