Satellite Installations FAQs

Here are a few questions we often get asked about satellite dishes...

I have no satellite signal, do I need to replace the dish? 

Not necessarily, it might just need a repair or to be realigned. Give us a call we can help if you are getting a message saying “no satellite signal being received”. 

What television services can I receive through a satellite dish? 

You can receive a range of television services through a satellite dish, this includes Sky, Freesat and International TV.

Sky can’t do the installation, can you help? 

Yes, we are trained to work safely at heights meaning we can carry out the installations that Sky can’t. 

What is Freesat? 

Freesat is a free to air TV service. There is a large range of free channels available including BBC, ITV, 4, 5, and many more. Once you have the equipment installed (dish and receiver) there are no ongoing subscriptions to pay.  

Can I have my satellite dish fitted in the loft? 

No, it needs to be fitted outside. Our blog on installing a satellite dish in the loft covers everything you need to know.
