Channels & PIDs

Each service available on EUMETCast has been assigned a corresponding multicast channel and Packet Identifier (PID). In order to receive the service, the relevant PID must be selected.

Scheme - EUMETCAST system - small

The table below provides the list of current multicast channels and PIDs. For details on how to set PIDs, see EUMETCast Technical Description.

Note for LINUX users: Linux users having installed the EUMETSAT provided dvb-eumetcast package should upgrade to version 1.1 or later. The structure of the channels file has changed and is not compatible with earlier versions. The package and the most recent channel file are available for download from our ftp site:
ftp://ftp.eumetsat.int/pub/OPS/out/user/EUMETCast_Support/EUMETCast_Licence_cd/Linux/DVB_devices/Common_Apps/

Support in the user community

There are several user groups within Europe whose members are utilising the services on EUMETCast. Find out more from them at: https://groups.io/g/MSG-1
