Home / Satellite Dishes
The installation of a satellite dish can present a challenge for a variety of reasons. Visually the ideal position may not be pleasing to the eye and there are many obstacles such as trees that can impede the signal.
However, our experienced engineers are there to work with you to find a solution to these problems – even if it means a steep climb to position a satellite dish high on a wall to avoid reception blocking obstacles.
If you are unhappy with the position of your satellite dish our engineers can advise you on re-location to a more discreet position which can serve to enhance the look of your property. One option to achieve a discreet installation is a galvanized chimney bracket to fit your satellite dish to a chimney. As another option, we can relocate the satellite dish to the rear of the building using galvanized specially shaped brackets which will allow a clear line of sight to the satellite.
This installation is called a Non-penetrating roof mount system and is ideal where there is no tank room or other means to attach the aerials/dishes. It can be fitted to a flat roof. One dish is for Sky and the other is for Eutelsat (for foreign channels)
For flat roofs, such as garages, we can consider non penetrating mounting galvanized brackets – again ensuring this to be a discreet satellite dish installation.
If you are looking for improved performance as an alternative to a standard black mesh satellite dish our engineers can consider with you the option of installing a larger satellite dish. A larger dish will give you more signal and this will help to combat bad weather conditions, such as thick cloud or heavy rain both of which can block the signal from the transmitter to your dish. We also have Sky Q LNBS for all our satellite dishes.
Following the installation or relocation of your satellite dish to a more desirable position we can also remove any disused TV aerials - further improving the appearance of your home. Our engineers can also fit an outlet plate to the inside of your wall so that you can unplug the leads to your satellite box and remove them ease for vacuuming.
Cohen TV can also supply and install fixed satellite dishes for European satellite TV. Options are the 79cm off set solid grey satellite dish or the 60cm grey solid off set satellite dish. These products come with a pole mount & LNB fixing kit that will accept universal LNBS. The design is solid rather than mesh so as to capture as much signal as possible. This makes them a good choice for satellites like the Hotbird.
Most of the satellites for European TV channels are positioned further away from the United Kingdom which results in a weaker signal than Sky or Freesat. This means that you will need a bigger satellite dish than the customary small black mesh ones that are suitable for the English speaking channels like Freesat and Sky. Our engineers can advise you as to the best dish, cable and LNB to ensure the optimum reception from the Hotbird and Astra satellite and can talk you through the options of having more than one European satellite receiver – for example one in the lounge and one in another room, say a bedroom
