Can I get German/Italian channels on Sky Digital? | Help! Non-U
Wednesday 24 August 2011 2:26PM

I just moved to the UK (I live in Basingstoke, Hants) and I
was wandering if you can help me.
I would like to install a satellite dish in my house and I
am interested in seeing all uk channels (something I can
use eventually with a sky box but I have also a tv with
freesat), and sky italy+germany. Can I use only a a motorised dish
(with 2 LNBs or more?), what are
my options, and what equipment do you suggest?

Hi Les,
thanks for your reply. I live in a new house and I checked all connections in the loft. There are 2 cables coming from the roof and they both have sat written on them, plus 8 loose cables going downstairs (there is 1 connection in every bedroom but with the connector I would use for aerial not sat, so I am confused), plus in the living room there are four connectors, two look like satellite and two look like aerial (again I am confused). Attached to all cables in the loft there is a label that says: 2xsat dish cable - 4 lounge - 4 bedrooms - *no aereal.
I asked for two quotes and just for installing the motorised dish (if I buy the equipment myself) I have been asked around 250/300£ and I think it is highly overpriced...
Are you able to give me more info on what I need if I just want to install a motorised dish and an aerial, any suggestion is welcome... Thanks in advance, Marcello
