Satellites

At The Aerial Man, that’s not all we deal with, we are also satellites specialists.
We can offer you highly competitive package deals if you are thinking about moving over into Freesat, the non-subscription satellite service. Like Freeview, it is a one off payment for the installation of the satellite dish and box, then that’s everything!

Freesat

There are lots of other options and alternatives when looking into a satellite television service. Looking for a particular foreign satellite? Leave it to the experts, let us know what satellite you want to connect too, or what country you want to receive, and we can install it for you.

Satellite Dishes can often become a slightly temperamental tool after being sat there for years and years. However, unlike the normal television aerial, where you can just spin it around, a satellite dish often becomes a massive problem for people who have had theirs move, or knocked by the wind or wildlife.

satellite installation

Want to run more televisions off your satellite, or want another cable so you can get a recordable PVR? Not a problem, here at The Aerial Man, we can send one of our engineers out to you for your free one-to-one consultation, and we can tell you how much it will cost, replacing the unit on the end of your dish called the LNB if you haven’t got enough connections left, and run the cable for you exactly where you’d like, using a choice of cable to make it as subtle as possible.
