    Low budget satellite

    So I will start with I purchased the orbit dvr. I had set up the instulation. Took off work and nobody showed up. Ok so we rescheduled for a week later. I took off work agian and no show. Really. Ok let's try for another week out for a day I am off. Installer Finnaly showed up this time 3 weeks out. He came to install the satellite and had no tools. Omg really and your the pro. Ok I have some tools you can use. Finally we get it up and running. I live 50 miles south of kc. The antenna picked up 46 channels. Awesome. But I got a 150 mile range anntana that is remote controlled and the installer couldn't hook it up for me. Bummer. As for the rest of the paid programming. Well it picks up the paid programming 3/4 ths of the time. On cloudy days nothing but the anntana channels. On clear days it works but seems to lag like it's buffering. Not continues like the antenna. And then there are days like today where it's very windy, yes some clouds but not many. I can still see the sun casting shadows and I can't get anything but the anntana channels. It says ( No Satellite Signal )... Customer service is awesome. There the best thing out of the whole package. If you are looking for a low budget satellite tv, it's ok. I only got this because I wanted to get rid of roku. Well guess what I'm watching right now because I can't get satellite channels. Yup roku. I would recommend this if you can't get any other tv where you live

    Good Overall Value if you are not a TVholic

    Overall as a value purchase, I am pleased. Does a nice job of receiving satellite channels. Really decent selection of stations especially at the $50 level. No sports channels at all though. Missing some features of the big boys such as series recording of shows. Also it will freeze on some occasions and a reboot is necessary which obviously interrupts the show. Over the Air is another story. When installer left, I couldn't get any local channels. I tried a better antenna, still nothing. In my area, I should be able to get 20 plus channels so I reconfigured the system and bought a couple splitters. Now I get 20 to 30 channels pretty consistently depending on weather. It is aggravating that the installer didn't do this but anyway I'm up and going. The antenna that comes with the system has no amplifier so is limited in reaching stations but I get 10 to 15 channels with it. Being able to record OTA with Orby is a nice feature though. Another aggravation is that with OTA channels that start on the half hour sometimes record on the hour so you get the wrong show. Not sure what is up with this. I could not recommend this to a constant heavy TV user because it only has 2 tuners and the previously mentioned shortcomings but if you are a light TV watcher like myself who wants to pay a very reasonable price(and doesn't miss sports TV) and save 100+ a month and can deal with a few aggravations, then ORBY is for you. Good Luck! (Orby I hope you are listening)

    We're so happy with Orby TV! Box arrived exactly when they said it would with easy packaging. Scheduling installation was a breeze on the orbytv.com website….didn’t even have to speak to anyone. Installers called before, showed up on time, showed ID, were very courteous, successfully installed in frigid weather. We activated the service from the orbytv App which I downloaded easily from the orbytv website. Picture color and quality are a big upgrade, commercials aren't blasting loud, and channel selection is great – doubled the number of local channels thanks to the antenna. We love the clear, easy program guide with descriptions. Of course the low cost is great! The App is so simple - I can pause my service anytime without needing to speak to anyone and don’t have to worry about being locked into a contract! The box is great - the service is awesome. Highly recommend.

    I purchased this receiver at the Best Buy in Duluth, GA and I have to say, I will never pay a cable company again. Why has this product not been released before? I was paying $180 a month when first heard about this product. Now with Orby I pay $50 and save $130 each month. The installer was very professional, and went through the entire install process with me, as well as explained the guide, which in my opinion looks better than many other providers. This is on the main viewing TV in my house and the picture looks great. I have over 50 local channels, plus the satellite channels, and although I will always keep the subscribed channels, it is refreshing to know that I am not in contract and can cancel anytime. I plan on heading back to the store to purchase 3 more for the rest of my house.

    Useless without Paid "Pro" installer

    Read the fine print. REQUIRED $150 + Taxes fees Installation & Activation by Orby Installer. Has to be done by them. You can not use this product if you wish to install the dish yourself, which is dumb easy to do. "Most people do not have the tools" their FAQ says....lol...basic tools a power drill/screwdriver is all you need. I have installed several dishes and very rarely need any thing more. You do not even get the dish and antenna, that only comes with the installer. Also, if you rent, beware that your landlord will charge you a Damage deposit of anywhere from $200 to $1,000 and require proof of Renters insurance. In the end, after all the costs and fees, it is not worth it.

    Moved to rural area, no internet or cable. Hate directv and dish. Had Orby installed and love it. Getting locals with no problem. Nice having both on one reciever and remote. I elected for $50 package with Epix. Way cheaper than we were paying Xfinity before the move. Signal quality is excellent and picture is great on our 65" uhd LG. Will recommend this to anyone who could care less about sports and other 'trash' channels. Extremely happy with pay-as-you-go. Any extras are easily controlled to fit budget changes. I still use my BUD for extra channels, but Orby is my daily go to.

    I’m in my first apartment so money is tight. I decided that I could finally afford to get TV. But I knew I couldn’t spend very much each month. I saved up to buy the receiver and get installation. But now I can count on ONLY $40 a month. I like that I get local channels and specialty channels. I love my FOOD network, CNN and local channels. And, if I have a tight month, I can turn it off until I have the money to spend. I also like that they didn’t do a credit check because I don’t have ANY credit right now.

    Way better than cable

    You need only buy receiver or receivers and hire an installer. around 150-200 tops. Then 40 bucks a month for a great basic package or pay more for premium. no contracts, no fees, no surprises. went from 145 a month with Spectrum, to 40 a month for same exact Package on orby. You do hire and pay install and you have to buy each receiver. 40 a month is up to 4 rooms, but need a receiver for each room. Still pays for itself in 3 months time. 5 stars

    This is a good quality receiver.But It will only become functional upon subscribing to Orby subscription service and installation of an antenna and satellite dish by Orby. The antenna provided with the $150.00 installation is a low quality short range type.If you live in a fringe area,then this antenna will not be ideal.Still,for the price,the installation is a good value.The subscription service,having no contract,is very reasonable.

    I just received my Orby receiver and installation kit and got everything installed and I am very happy with it. Not only am I paying half what I was with the other provider I am now getting channels that were only offered on the more expensive packages. Plus the over the air channels are a bonus. I am getting 30 of those. I couldn't be happier with Orby! I just got a raise!

    excellent alternative

    if you don't have high-speed internet, this is an especially great way to get cable tv for a low cost. It's only $40 a month. Also, it's the only device I know that integrates the over the air antenna along with cable into one slick on screen guide. It's innovative and great! The feed looks great, and I've had no issue with weather or anything like that.

    We decided on this as a tv service because it has HBO and cinamax now. I really love the guide and its all simple to use. Prices are way better than anything we ever got with Cox.

    This set-up is good enough for ones who don't prefer to pay for movies and sports channels. You will have a permanent antenna for your local channels.
