TV Vlaanderen's customers are mostly people living in Flanders. However, as TV Vlaanderen is officially available to the whole of Belgium, TV Vlaanderen also has many Flemish customers living in the French-speaking part of Belgium due to the unavailability of Dutch-language TV channels on Cable Television platform's in Wallonia.

Like the Dutch satellite television provider CanalDigitaal, TV Vlaanderen is owned by M7 Group S.A..

HistoryEdit

Originally, TV Vlaanderen only offered a DVB-S2 satellite television service, using the SES Astra satellites at Astra 19.2°E and at Astra 23.5°E.

In 2017, it started a DVB-T2 terrestrial service branded "Antenne TV", which uses the Norkring transmitter network.[1][2]

Smart cardEdit

The Flemish public and commercial broadcasts are not freely available via satellite. To receive the Flemish broadcasts, a Smartcard is required to decipher the Mediaguard signal.

A standard DVB-S2 receiver is used, which can also receive free-to-air broadcasts.
