How to generate a satellite dish
Many people think that setting up a satellite dish is a tricky task, and something that you will find left to the professionals, but that’s not really the case. If you’re confident with a bit of DIY, you can buy a receiver and dish, install them yourself, and you’ll be able to watch Freesat with its fairly wide range of channels - and if you have a Panasonic TV set with Freesat built in, that will also give you accessibility to the BBC iPlayer as well, which might be sufficient reason to connect up a dish for some.
It’s worth mentioning that if you have a dish that was set up for Sky, you can use it for Freesat anyway - it points at the same satellite, and indeed most of broadcasts are the same for each system. The ‘orbital position’ of the satellite is 28.2 degrees east, which actually means that it’s 28.2 degrees east of due south.
Freesat also has some channels, and some important network information, on the Eurobird satellite, at 28.5 east. With a normal dish, you’ll get a signal from both at the same time, as they’re so close together. But if when you try to tune in the receiver, you find that a Freesat box claims it can’t find the signal, you might need to nudge the dish a fraction, as the likely cause will be that it’s not receiving the information from Eurobird that’s vital for setup, such as the list of channels and the postcode data that ensure you see the correct regions.
