Satellite TV systems are commonly run as an additional service to terrestrial TV, or as a complete alternative for properties that struggle to receive a reliable terrestrial signal from their location. A satellite dish is capable of receiving Sky, FreeSat or foreign TV services.
1a Aerials offers the following solutions:
Budget (powder coated steel) £100+VAT
Commonly referred to as a ‘Sky’ or ‘Mini’ dish and supplied as standard with Sky or Freesat retail packages. 44cm x 30cm and made from powder coated steel. Those on a modest budget can rely on this satellite dish to provide decent signal when fixed securely in position and with connecting cable routed neatly to the TV point. These dishes are however, susceptible to interference during bad weather and can rust within 1-2 years if heavily exposed to the sea air.
Mid range (galvanised + powder coated steel) £150+VAT
A professional satellite dish with improved shape and increased diameter. 65cm x 60cm and made from galvanised steel before being powder coated, providing a slightly longer life than the standard ‘Sky’ dish. The larger surface area of the dish catches more signal, providing higher gain and more reliable reception in bad weather. They are also less susceptible to interference from other satellites.
Rust resistant (fibreglass) £200+VAT
A high quality, weather resistant and rustproof satellite dish that will last significantly longer than the budget or mid range versions. The dish is 65cm x 60cm and made entirely from fibreglass. Its aluminium arm and galvanised steel back plates ensures the complete product is fully sealed to resist wind and moisture of challenging levels. Read more about fibreglass dishes here.
