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, or give us a ring on 0345 313 0051, and we'll arrange it for you.
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.
Please note that some satellite dishes that have been set up to receive Sky Q feature a different LNB (the part that sticks out from the satellite dish), so if you are switching from Sky Q you may need a satellite installation company to change the LNB on your dish back to a standard or Hybrid fitting in order to make it compatible with Freesat.
