Satellite Dish

Sky Digital, Sky+ and Sky High Definition: 

You can arrange your new system through us, we will carry out the installation to the highest of standards and wherever possible locate the dish in an unobtrusive location. We can also enable the distribution of the Sky output to other rooms and arrange that you can change the channels in a secondary location, using the global tvlink. We can install to communal satellite systems in apartment blocks, where Sky will not.

Chimney mounted Sky minidish, serving two Sky HD boxes

Freesat, free to air English language channels

If you have difficulties receiving digitqal TV via your aerial, then Freesat is  a good alternative, offering the main  public service channels via a satellite dish and inexpensive digital satellite receiver. This service operates from the same group of satellites as Sky digital, so can use a similar dish size, please call for information.

Missing the non free to air F1 races?

For those who don't want to subscribe to Sky to watch all of the F1 races, (the ones which the BBC won't show), there is a fairly cheap solution, that is installation of a small satellite dish pointing at Astra 19.2 giving the free to air German channels. For a relatively low cost, 1towatch can install a minidish and provide a basic spec' digital receiver, which as a by-product will also enable reception of German Eurosport and lots of others including the excellent French and German language arts channel Arté.  Phone Rolf - 07971 327931


Concealed Dishes:

If you live in a sensitive area where dishes are frowned upon, we can in many cases provide a camouflaged dish or site the dish where it is invisible to the outside world. Download available.

There are a number of options available, whether they be analogue and or digital, multi LNB as shown above, or a small to medium sized DiseqC motorized system as shown below, call us to discuss your requirements we are a motorised dish installer, we can provide a complete system tailored to your needs, with a choice of satellite receivers and dish types.

 Motorised 70cm satellite dish

We use high quality Webro WF100 Foam Filled and double screened copper core cable on all single feed satellite installations and will use the colour which most closely coordinates with your wall, or at the very least, try and find a low visibility route for the cable, so the choice is not Black or Black. For Sky installations we will on occasions use Sky approved twin mini cable for neatness.
