In accordance with the rules stipulated by the Federal Government, the benefit is intended for families registered in CadÚnico (Single Registry for Social Programs of the Federal Government).

The advent of digital TV

The migration of the television signal from analog to digital represents an important technological advance, promising significant improvements in sound and image quality for viewers.

The transition to digital TV is also in line with the global development of communications infrastructure, including the implementation of 5G technology.

To facilitate this implementation, the C band traditionally used for TV transmissions was replaced by the Ku band.

However, this technological change left many families, especially those in socially vulnerable situations, on the sidelines, due to the incompatibility of their old equipment with the new signal.

Follow Antenado

Recognizing the need to promote digital inclusion, the government launched "Siga Antenado".

The program offers a digital antenna kit containing a state-of-the-art satellite dish, a digital signal receiver, a remote control with batteries and the necessary cables.

This kit is offered free of charge, allowing low-income families, who may have previously been excluded from the digital revolution, to now have access to superior quality television.


Interested parties must access the program’s official website, enter their identification data, such as the CPF or NIS of the person responsible for the family, to check their eligibility.

Once considered eligible, beneficiaries are instructed to complete a registration with their personal information and details about the antenna they currently have.
