Satellites and aerials are crucial as they ensure that your TV viewing experience is smooth and uninterrupted. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to enjoy a movie or a documentary only to experience interference. Or sometimes you might find that your TV isn’t picking up all the channels that are available to you. A typical satellite or aerial should last a good 10 to 20 years though damage can mean that it needs tending to sooner. Let Hoppy find you a satellite and aerial installation specialist in just a few easy steps.

What can an aerial and satellite specialist help you with?

  • Aerial misalignment
  • Aerial damage
  • Interference form household devices
  • External or internal interference
  • Old or damaged cabling

What qualifications does an aerial and satellite specialist need?

When employing an aerial and satellite specialist, look for a CAI (Confederation Aerial Industries) qualification or ask if they’re registered with the RDI-LB (regional Digital Installer Licensing Body). Registration with one of those bodies guarantees that your specialist has undergone a criminal check, can work at heights, and has public liability insurance.

Do I need a satellite dish for Sky Q and Freesat?

Yes, both services are transmitted through a satellite dish. If you want to enjoy the programming offered by either Sky Q or Freesat, and don’t currently have a satellite dish installed, then you’ll need one.

Can I connect a satellite dish directly to my TV?

The simple answer is no. Satellite dishes need a receiver/set top box which decode the signal from the satellite and send it to your TV.

Can I connect a Freeview TV to a satellite dish?

Unfortunately, not. Freeview is a terrestrial TV service, meaning that it’s received via the TV aerial and not the satellite dish.
