How do I get Freesat?
To receive Freesat in Cardiff, SkyQ or any other satellite TV broadcast you'll need an existing satellite dish on your house, or have one installed. Give me a call to book an installation.
To receive satellite channels in other rooms in your house you may need to upgrade your LNB to a quad or octo, allowing upto 8 satellite TV reception points. Or if more rooms are needed then the possibilities are endless with multiswitch installation.
If your satellite dish isn't correctly aligned or not pointing toward the right satellite (for freesat this is Astra 2) then you may need to get your dish re-aligned.
Some TVs have built-in satellite tuners meaning they can receive either Freesat or even Freesat HD channels without needing a separate set-top box. You can buy a Freesat set-top box from about £80, although Freesat HD ones cost a bit more. Modern Freesat boxes have much more functionality with internet services & Freetime program guides for catchup etc.
In Cardiff I offer a complete service & can supply Freesat boxes with your satellite dish installation or install your own equipment.
