The new kits seek to ensure that families have better sound and image quality. Without the interference caused by the 5G signal. Plus, it’s free, so there’s no charge.

In this way, we point out that the release of the kits will be gradual. By replacing the satellite dish and the converter, families can now rely on digital TV broadcasting, so they will have access to a quality image and sound signal.

This benefit is guaranteed by the Ministry of Communications. The change of devices began in August of this year. To have access to the kit, in addition to having the CadUniquepeople must already be covered by some social program, as is the case of Auxílio Brasil.

It is also required that the family has at least one working satellite dish, that is, the device cannot be defective. To request the new feature, it is necessary to make an appointment on the Siga Antenado website. When this step is completed, there is nothing else to do, except to accompany the technician’s visit to the residence.
