Important Information – Giddy-Up TV General Set-up

Giddy-Up TV Set Top Box (STB)

The Giddy-Up TV STB's are connected via the internet at your venue to receive data allowing the display of the Giddy-Up TV service within your venue. If your venue subscribes to Giddy-Up TV Black – 2 Screen Premium service then there will be two STB's within your venue.

The STB's are able to display HDMI or composite video output.

**If your venue subscribes to the Giddy-Up TV Split Service then the input on your television will be HDMI.

If your service is displaying via HDMI then it will only be able to be displayed on a single television and the STB will be located within 5m of the television.

If your service is displayed using an MATV distribution system then Giddy-Up TV will have been tuned into your venues TV system as a channel that will display on any televisions in the venue connected to that TV system.
