how  satellite dishes work

How Satellite Dishes Work

Satellite dishes are very common throughout as they provide home and business owners with a premium viewing experience. These dishes capture signals being broadcast from satellites in orbit around the Earth, then send them to a receiver which unscrambles the signal and displays it on your television screen. Some of the channels you can access with a satellite dish are free; others are considered premium channels, and you will need a paid subscription to access those. In some cases, your television provider may offer you a free satellite dish, including installation, if you agree to a premium service contract.

Satellite vs. Cable vs. Aerial

Satellite television offers many more channels than its aerial counterpart since the signal is being delivered from multiple satellites rather than simply capturing whatever broadcast is available in the local area, as with an aerial. Satellite and cable service is often quite comparable, though satellite dishes provide access to more free viewing than cable.

choosing a satellite dish, cable or aerial

The only real downfall to satellite as opposed to cable or aerial television has to do with the way the programming is received. Because your television relies on the dish to receive any kind of signal, if the dish is blown by the wind or covered in snow or ice, or if the path between the dish and the satellite itself is impeded by trees, objects, or even heavy rain, you may lose your television signal altogether until the obstruction has been addressed. While you can trim trees or wait for rain clouds to pass, you can’t tell your neighbour not to add a second storey to his or her home. In some cases, you may be able to contact a professional to reposition your satellite dish or place it up high on a pole. However, this is not always possible.

Am I responsible for paying for the installation?

In most cases, yes. You will need to purchase your own satellite dish and pay a professional installer to attach it to your roof or another high part of your property with a clear view of the satellite it’s intended to receive its signal from. There are a few exceptions in which premium satellite television providers may trade you a free satellite dish and installation for a signed contract stating you’ll pay for premium service for a period of one to two years. If this is the case, be sure to read the agreement carefully before you sign, and make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities regarding that contract. Should you choose to cancel, you will not only need to return the dish and the equipment, but you may also be required to pay fees for terminating your service early.

Your satellite dish questions answered

Where will you install the satellite dish?

The satellite dish must be installed outside with an unobstructed view of the satellite, preferably on a vertical wall or pole mounted from a roof or chimney. This is necessary to get the best signal possible.

Will I be able to watch Sky?

Yes. The installers ensure that your satellite dish is installed properly so you get all of your favourite channels in high definition. Your new satellite dish will also be able to access plenty of channels that you never had before provided you sign up to a compatible provisioning service.

Are satellite dish signals affected by weather?

Mild weather, like small clouds or light rain will not generally affect the signals received by the dish. Heavy rain or snow, and extreme winds can damage the signal by moving the dish slightly.

How long does it take to install a satellite dish?

Most satellite dish installations can be completed in a number of hours. This will vary depending on where the dish needs to be installed and how many rooms are being connected to the cabling.

Will a satellite dish cause damage to my roof?

No, satellite dishes are very lightweight, which means your roof should be able to handle one with ease. Very little hardware is needed to install a satellite dish, so there be little impact on your roof’s surface.

Can I install a satellite dish on a rented or leased home?

Because a rented or leased home is technically not your property, you should never install a satellite dish without the express written permission of your landlord. In fact, many satellite dish installation companies will ask you to show proof that you own your home before they will perform any installation services. If you do not own your home, you may need to provide a document signed by your landlord as well as your landlord’s contact information.
