No, you cannot use a satellite box to receive terrestrial programmes.
I don't want to use a satellite box I have a freeview box. I want to know if an existing dish for sky can be use with the freeview box.Can I use a cable splitter and run one end to the sky box the the other to a freeview box and get the freeview channels.
You cannot use a Freeview receiver with a satellite dish, only an aerial.
You also cannot split a satellite signal from a dish, if you want to run more than one box you must use a dual- or quad-LNB on the satellite dish and have a cable to each satellite receiver.
Many thanks for the info and your thoughts. From the Freeview website our reception seems fine.
Regarding putting an aerial up can it run off the existing satellite cables, or does a new cable need to be run to the TV's ? If so is this normally straightforward or likely to be expensive ? (included in your ?150 estimate ?).
Again, many thanks
