The value of the DTH Kit after reimbursement is 30 euros (unit value for the first and second Kits); users can obtain the kit with reimbursement in one of two ways:
- acquire the equipment for its full value (77 euros) and receive a refund for the reimbursement amount, i.e., 47 euros, after sending the request form and supporting documents requested by PT Comunicações; or
- order the DTH Kit and, provided all requirements for reimbursement are met, collect the equipment from the store, paying only €30 per kit (up to two per home). Equipment will be available for collection within 5 working days (for 95 percent of requests), following confirmation from PT Comunicações.
This reimbursement may be combined with:
- the subsidy for the acquisition of equipment;
- the installation subsidy.
Additional DTH Kits (from the third kit, per address or if you have pay TV), cost 96 euros and are not covered by any reimbursement.
Users may acquire DTH kits up to 9 December 2023.
In cases where users want to have the DTH reception system installed (including satellite dish, cabling and installation of the antenna itself), they may ask for it to be installed by PT Comunicações (or by the operator's partners). Installation of a first set-top box costs a maximum of 61 euros (including VAT). The user may, however, agree directly with the installer to install additional set-top boxes.
For this purpose, PT Comunicações has posted a list of recommended installers by areahttp://tdt.telecom.pt/como/Default.aspx?code=XzX6F6#searchInstaladores.
Applicants can only benefit from these special installation conditions for DTH reception systems installed up to 26 April 2013.

These values may be reviewed by ANACOM, particularly in light of changes in equipment prices.
