How does the service work?
To use our service you need a desktop PC in which a DVB card has to be installed. The DVB card is connected by a coaxial cable to the Universal LNB on the satellite dish. With your normal internet connection via phone line, you connect to our website and log in with your chosen username and password and enter our Multimedia platform. Here you can choose files to be sent to you at a scheduled time or select one of our Streaming Zones. Once a request for an available file or a Streaming Zone has been done, you can log off the Internet and then the DVB card receives the file at the scheduled time or the selected Streaming Zone starts immediately.
What is a satellite?
A satellite is a sophisticated electronic communications relay station orbiting more than 36,000 km above the equator. It moves in a fixed orbit at the same speed and direction as the earth.
What is a transponder?
A transponder is a combination of a receiver, transmitter and antenna package on a satellite. The signal is received from the uplink station and downlinked back to Earth on a different frequency.
On which satellites are your services based on?
Our services are based on the data transponder C12 located on the Eutelsat satellite W3.
How do the ordered files get to my PC?
Files ordered via our multicast system are scheduled for a high speed (2 Mbps) download delivery via satellite and are then automatically received by your DVB card at the given time. The Kencast Fazzt software, which is available free of charge to our customers, handles the download reception.
What are streams?
Streams are television quality video channels, which are sent to you non-stop via satellite like a normal TV channel. We have created several special Interactive Streaming Zones where streams (in stream box) are surrounded with exciting Internet content. You can choose among several channels containing games, music, film and adult content.
How does the Streaming work?
To start watching a certain stream you only have to connect to our website and choose the stream of your choice. Once the stream has started, you can quit your Internet connection and the stream can be viewed offline via your DVB card.
Why do I still need my internet connection via the phone line?
You need your existing internet connection to log into our site and request a desired download or streaming zone. As for you need your Internet connection via the phone line for the Upload/Sending Requests.

Satellite Dish 
What is a Satellite Dish?
Satellite dishes receive microwave signals from orbiting communication satellites. A dish used to receive satellite signals is generally a parabolic surface that reflects microwaves to a feed. The small metal probe within this feed is, in reality, the microwave antenna. A satellite dish collects and concentrates the very weak signals downlinked from a broadcast satellite while ignoring as much of any unwanted signals and noise as possible. Most dishes in use today are parabolically shaped. Flat plate antennas are also used for receiving broadcast signals from satellites. Signals are reflected from the dish surface and concentrated to a "focal point" or to a series of focal points.
What are the differents types of satellite dish?
Universal LNB : Most LNBs in the market today are analogue, however, as digital satellite services become increasingly popular throughout Europe, many households are upgrading their satellite service to digital. This upgrade from analogue to digital requires the replacement of the analogue LNB with a Universal LNB. This piece of hardware is mandatory for receiving the digital satellite signal carrying the Europe Online service. A "universal LNB" receives the entire range of analogue and digital signals (from 10.70 to 12.75 GHz) and is compatible with both digital and analogue receivers.
Twin Universal LNB : A twin universal LNB has two independent outputs that provide connection of two independent receivers (i.e. a television satellite receiver box and the Europe Online receiver card installed in your PC). Europe Online recommends this type of solution, which allows the Europe Online subscriber to use the Europe Online service while simultaneously receiving signals to the television.
Quad Universal LNB : Similar the Twin Universal LNB, the Quad Universal LNB provides multiple, independent outputs so that up to 4 devices can be operated at the same time. A quad LNB provides 4 independent outputs for those households that have more than one television.
Where can I purchase a satellite dish?
Europe Online has a range of Satellite dish offers which you can find on "Order Online". Dishes are also available at many electronic and TV stores. The installation should be carried out by a TV technician.
What size of satellite dish do I need?
To verify your location and the according size of the dish needed to receive our service on EUTELSAT, please check our "Technical Info" page at the following link : "Satellite Dish".
What kind of satellite dish do I need?
To receive our services transmitted on the digital frequency range you need a satellite dish with a Universal (digital) LNB, which can receive signals up to 12.75 GHz.
Where do I have to point my satellite dish to?
You have to point your satellite dish to the Eutelsat satellite W3 at 7 degrees East. For more informations, check our "Technical Info" page at the following link : "Satellite Dish".
What is an LNB?
LNB stands for Low Noise Block downconverter. An LNB detects the signal relayed from the feed, converts it to an electrical current, amplifies it and lowers its frequency. The downconverted signal is relayed via coax cable to an indoor satellite receiver or DVB card. You have analogue LNBs with a frequencies range from 10.950 to 11.700 GHz and Universal (digital) LNBs, which cover our frequency, range up to 12.75 GHz.
Can I use a satellite dish with an analogue LNB as well?
Unfortunately it is not possible to receive our service with an analogue LNB, since an analogue LNB cannot receive the frequencies on which our service transmits. Europe Online operates from digital satellite signal and requires that the home satellite dish be equiped with a digital LNB, called Universal LNB.
How can I check if my LNB is analogue or digital?
You can check whether your LNB is digital or not by looking at the frequency range, which is usually written on the LNB. When your LNB is digital this frequency range goes up to 12.75 GHz. If it is analogue this frequency range only goes up to 11.75 GHz.
Can I use a Sky minidish?
Sky Digital dishes are pointing to Astra at 28.2 degrees East, whereas our service is based on Eutelsat 7 degrees East. Accordingly unless a dish, which is used for Sky Digital, is moved to the orientation of one of the satellites (which implies losing the Sky Digital signal), it cannot be used to receive our service unfortunately.
Can I use satellite dishes with a multifeed system?
This depends on your DVB card and its compatibility with the DiSeQc level your multifeed system uses. To avoid buying a DVB card that does not support the DiSeQc level used, please check the needed DiSeQc level support in advance. The technical details of a DVB card will tell you which level it supports. If unsure, please check with your local satellite dish retailer.

    Mutlicast Downloads 
    What is a multicast download?
    Multicast downloads are download transmissions carried out using our scheduled download system. These downloads are ordered by you from either the Download Centre or File Fetch and will then at the given time be received with the Kencast Fazzt software.
    At which speed do I receive multicast downloads?
    Scheduled downloads from our download pages or File Fetch are always received at the given time at a guaranteed speed of 2 Mbps.
    How is it different from normal Internet downloads?
    There are several differences:
  • The downloads are sent via satellite. No more net congestion, no more lost connections. No more large telephone bills waiting for downloads to come in terrestrially.
  • The downloads are sent at 2 Mbps.
  • The downloads are multicast, not unicast. This means you can take advantage of the downloads that other users have scheduled by requesting them for yourself.

  • How do I receive a download?
    Receiving a download sent via satellite is primarily a function of the Fazzt Software. This software must be properly installed and configured to receive your download. Further, your system must be set to our transponder on which you made the request. One important detail is that you don't need to be connected to your telephone line to receive the download.
    How long do I have to wait for a download?
    Since the Download Centre and File Fetch work on a queuing system, there are no standard waiting times. It is first come, first served.
    When a file is requested from another website with the File Fetch function and has to be uploaded onto our File Fetch servers first, the upload may, depending on the file size and server capacity, take some time.
    Once a file is available on our server and is requested for being downloaded either in the Download Centre or in the File Fetch File Zone, the waiting time will be calculated and the customer will be notified about the exact time for the reception of the scheduled file via the 2 Mbps offline download system.
    How can I request downloads from other websites?
    You can get downloads from other websites through the File Fetch option in our Download Centre. This option is closely related to the Europe Online Download Centre and uses the same delivery system, but allows you to request files from the Internet by providing the exact URL (either http or ftp) of these files.
    Does my Internet connection need to remain switched on while receiving downloads?
    You need your Internet connection to request the downloads. After you requested a download, you can disconnect from your internet connection as the downloads are received offline.
    Does my PC have to remain turned on to receive scheduled download?
    Your PC has to be switched on at the time the download is scheduled for and you should not watch TV on your PC or use the DVB card for anything else while the download is being transmitted, since this would interrupt the download.
    Is it possible to do direct downloading?
    It is unfortunately not possible to do direct downloading using the Multicast system. All Multicast downloads carried out via our system are scheduled.
    Can I download from file sharing programs like WinMX, Edonkey, Morpheus, etc.?
    It is not possible to request files via File Fetch from the above programs, as you download from another PC (peer to peer) and not from an Internet address. File Fetch can supply you with files available at ftp/http servers.
    Can I use download managers like CuteFTP, Getright, FlashGet, etc.?
    Download managers are designed for direct download and can thus not be used for scheduled downloads.
    How secure is your download system?
    The files you order through our service are sent to you via satellite, which means that you do not have to worry about Internet security. Furthermore, the files sent to you via satellite are encrypted and are decrypted once they arrive on your PC by the TwoFish software, which is part of the Kencast Fazzt software.
    Can I download whatever I want; do you control my download content?
    You have the possibility to select files available on our website or to select files from http or ftp servers in the Internet with the File Fetch option of our Download Centre. As for the content, please refer to our terms and conditions.
    Can I watch streams on my PC while receiving a multicast download?
    Yes, you can watch streams while receiving a multicast download.
    Can I watch TV channels on my PC screen while receiving a multicast download?
    You cannot watch TV Channels while receiving a Multicast download as this would interrupt the download (nor tune the DVB card to another transponder than our data transponder).

    Download Centre 
    What is the Download Centre ?
    The Download Centre is one of the most unique and innovative electronic file delivery systems in the world today. It is a huge digital database of files that can be delivered to your personal computer via satellite. Our satellite technology guarantees delivery speeds of 2 Mbps from our satellite transponder. As a result, very large files can be downloaded which would never be possible in the narrowband world.
    How does the Download Centre work?
    The Europe Online Download Centre is a multicast system. That is, we send downloads out once and many people are able to receive it at the same time. When the user requests the download, the file is retrieved and placed into a queuing system. When the download has been slotted for delivery, it is broadcast out via satellite to all users. Only those users that have requested the download will be able to receive it on their PC.
    What kind of files do you have in the Download Centre?
    In our Download Centre we have a selection of software, videos, music, games and art files, etc.
    How often is the Download Centre updated?
    We update our Download Centre weekly.
    In which languages are your downloads available?
    Downloads available in our Download Centre are in English, German, French or Italian.
    Are all the files for free or do you charge for some files?
    All files available in our Download Centre are free except for some movies. In future we will introduce more and more payable downloads, like games, movies, etc. to increase variety. Payable downloads are marked and the price is mentioned in the download description.
    Is there a download description available for the files in the Download Centre?
    Yes, all downloads in the Download Centre have a description. To view the description, just have to click on the file name.
    Are the files freeware or shareware?
    In general the files available in our Download Centre are freeware. Please check the file description to check whether a file is free- or shareware.
    Can I suggest a file to be added to the Download Centre?
    Yes, you can suggest a file to be added to the Download Centre. To do so, just send an E-Mail with the file name, a short description of the software and URL address.
    What is the best way to request downloads?
    There are four ways to request downloads using the Europe Online Download Centre.
  • Select one of the downloads already scheduled for delivery by checking the download delivery schedule.
  • Select one of the downloads from our featured downloads lists and see for yourself what the buzz is in all about.
  • Search our large database of downloads - from audio, video, software and games.
  • And if you can't find the file you want, let us know where to look on the Internet (ftp or http) and our File Fetch service will get it for you and deliver it over the satellite.

    File Fetch 
    What is File Fetch ?
    File Fetch is designed to be your personal file request system. It is a special download service only offered by our service. If you are looking for a specific download on the Internet, which you cannot find within the Download Centre, then we will "fetch" that download from the Internet (you need to supply the URL address of the file) and send it to you over satellite at high speeds (up to 2Mbps). And like all downloads delivered by our service, you will save money on Internet charges because the downloads are sent offline.

    It works in three easy steps:
    Step 1 : Request the download on the Internet by supplying its FTP or HTTP address.
    Step 2 : We retrieve the file from the Internet and place it in your Personal Storage Zone within our website. The time frame of this procedure depends on the waiting queue length.
    Step 3 : The file has reached 100% in your file zone, you click on it and we send you the download over satellite at high speed at a given time.
    Can I request files from all kinds of servers ?
    With File Fetch, you can request files from HTTP and FTP servers.
    Can I get files from secured/password-protected websites?
    It is possible with File Fetch to request files from servers with a valid log in (username and password). You of course need to have a valid login to the secured server you are trying to download from.
    Can I access my file zone from anywhere?
    Yes, you can access your file zone from any computer with an Internet connection. You cannot access the files in your file zone in another way than by logging in on our webpage and entering the file zone.
