Using your existing satellite dish


If you already have a satellite dish and cabling, in most cases you can simply plug your Freesat digital box or TV in and enjoy subscription free satellite TV.

If you need a new satellite dish or need extra cables, for example for Freesat's Smart TV Recorder, ask your retailer to arrange it for you when you buy your Freesat box. Alternatively you can search for local installers using the CAI directory here.

If your dish is still under warranty (typically 12 months) we advise you check that using it to receive Freesat will not affect your warranty terms before you install any other equipment.

Our new 4K TV Boxes work with both Sky Q satellite dish set ups (Wideband LNB) and Sky+ dish set-ups (Narrowband LNB). Please note, for previous Freesat boxes they will only work on the narrowband set-up.

If you're thinking of switching to Freesat, you can read more about our Freesat 4K TV Boxes and what product may best suit you by visiting the Freesat Webstore here.
