Selfsat, Neovia or Kathrein?

Dear all,

I would like to install a satellite dish for Eutelsat to my apartment. But I need a discrete and as small as possible one. Which one can you recommend to me? I've looked at the 3 models, but I don't have enough clue about any of these Selfsat, Neovia or Kathrein dishes and I don't want to be offline when it rains or snows

Thanks for the comments

It's not so much the brand of the dish, but the size. Larger dishes have more signal gain. Do you have a clear view of Eutelsat?
You can check the direction here:

Is it 16E that you are looking at?

Then you should be ok with a 60cm dish, or maybe even a 40cm. Maybe have a look at TechniSat's DisiDish, that's pretty small and discreet looking:

Thank you very much for the comprehensive e-mail.
I'm looking for 7E - Eutelsat W3A actually. And as far as I can see I have a clear view from my place.
Can I watch it with 40 cm dish?

I can get 7E fairly well on my 60cm dish, I guess a 40cm should be ok. But maybe go with a 60cm to be safe. Your call.
