How easy is it to switch to Freesat? Moving to Freesat is very simple, especially if you have an existing satellite dish. Even if you’ve not used it for a while, you just plug your satellite cables onto the back of one of our boxes and you’re good to go. If you don’t have a satellite dish, then you will need to have one installed before you can use our service. If you are interested in getting a satellite installed, then there are plenty of services available that you can investigate online.
