Norwich Aerials supply and fit Freesat satellite dishes.

In the days when digital tv was transmitted alongside analogue at low power, many struggled to receive all the extra channels available through a rooftop TV aerial due to poor signal strength. Reception from a satellite dish solved this problem. Freesat sold over 2 million boxes during this time.

Nowadays it’s rare that good digital TV reception cannot be achieved from a rooftop aerial. But Freesat still offers a solution for those unlucky customers who live in reception black spots.

If you already have a Sky tv satellite dish and are cancelling your Sky Q subscription, your existing dish can be converted to work with Freesat. Sky+ HD customers will find that their record/pause facility no longer works once subscription is cancelled and the program guide is full of channels no longer available. Replace it with a Freesat + box, fitted with a hard drive and your ability to record hundreds of hours of TV is restored.

More channels are available by Freesat compared to Freeview alone, although these are mainly shopping and music channels etc. In my opinion, Freesat doesn’t have any more quality general entertainment channels than Freeview offers via a TV aerial
