Aerial and satellite FAQs

What TV and radio can I receive?

In addition to the ‘traditional’ reception systems of terrestrial TV and FM radio, the others are listed below. Click on them to find out more.

Freesat and Freeview – what’s the difference?

Freeview is received using a standard TV aerial, while Freesat requires a satellite dish. Neither of them requires a subscription. (Freesat is not connected with Sky.) They both deliver similar content, including all the usual main channels such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel5, and numerous others.

Which you choose may depend on your location. Freesat’s satellite system may be a better choice in areas where TV reception is difficult.

Integrated Reception System (IRS)

Communal satellite and TV systems (Integrated reception systems)  allows you to receive multiple signals from an array of different receivers. For example, a typical IRS system would include a TV aerial, FM and DAB radio aerials, and a satellite antenna. These are distributed around the premises via two coaxial cables to multiple viewing points. This type of installation is typically suited to social housing, local authorities, private landlords and commercial builders.

Multiple services, one location

Integrated Reception System cables normally terminate at the main TV point in the property, giving access to services such as Sky, Sky+, Sky HD, SkyQ, Freesat, Freeview, DAB radio and FM radio – all at one location.
