Sky Dish Installation Manchester
A lot of the work we do is Sky dish installation. We can usually get to a customer within a day or two unlike Sky who can take up to 4 weeks in some cases to fit or repair a sky satellite dish. The equipment we fit is genuine, from the satellite dish to the Sky LNB whether it is a Quad LNB, Octo LNB, Hybrid LNB or Sky Q LNB. As mentioned we are not restricted to height and are more than happy to fit the Sky dish to the chimney or some other place, so long as it can get a quality signal. If you are moving house, we can move your dish to the new property, or simply relocate the dish if it is being obstructed in some way.

About half of the work we do is Sky repairs in Manchester. Problems with a customers’ Sky TV can be due to a number of reasons. Being exposed to the weather will take its toll and any externally fitted equipment, plus damaged from being knocked to general wear and tear. Our Sky repair services include;
1. Sky dish repairs
Sky dishes will fail if they become corroded or if they have been hit by scaffolding or ladders. We can completely replace a damaged dish if it cannot be repaired.
2. Sky dish Alignment
Strong winds or impact from a football or the window cleaners’ ladder can do enough to knock a satellite dish out of alignment and therefor lose signal. This happens a lot and we can do a Sky dish alignment to quickly line up the dish correctly and get Sky TV back up and running again.
3. Replace LNB
There are a few reasons to replace the LNB. It’s been damaged or is faulty, upgrade, or replacing a Sky Q to a standard version. We carry all types on our Van.
4. Renew cable and connections
Sometimes due to corrosion, the connections don’t work and need renewing, this is a quick and simple fix. Or if cable gets damaged or cut we can repair or replace the cable.
5. Sky box repairs
We can perform a forced software update to most Sky boxes if they are playing up. In many cases this will fix software issues with an older Sky box.
Answers to common questions
- What does a Satellite dish installation costs?
This can vary due to the number of cable running off the dish, the type of LNB on the dish and where on the property it is being installed. So, to get an accurate cost it is best to call us.
- Can a sky dish be fitted on a chimney?
Yes, we can fit the Sky dish on the chimney stack if required.
- Why is my Sky link not working after Sky Q installation?
This happens all the time. The reason is the Sky Q box has no facility to use a Sky link system. The only way to run Sky Q to other rooms without signing up to a multi room subscription is to use a HDMI splitter system.
- Do I need internet for Sky to work?
No, but you would need an internet connection if you wanted to watch catch up or download any of those types of services
- How quickly can you install a satellite dish?
This will depend on how many rooms are being linked to the Sky dish, but for one room it takes between 1 to 2 hours and in some cases we can get to you the same day.
