What type of satellite dish do I need?
A satellite dish is used to pick up TV signal beamed to you from space via satellite; it then sends this signal to your satellite receiver via the antenna cable for decoding. If you have a Sky Dish already on your roof, you can use this with Freeview.
Live TV signals for Freeview via Satellite are transmitted from the Optus D1 satellite. We recommend a minimum dish size of 60cm with a single 11.300 GHz LO Frequency LNB.
If you're using a satellite dish to pick up TV signal, make sure you get an approved product that works with a satellite dish.
Devices that are compatible with Satellite Dish
- Hybrid TV (or Dual Tuner TV)
- Satellite Recorder like the SatBox S8200
- Satellite receiver
Make sure you go for Freeview approved products - look for the Freeview logo instore on the display models!
