Freesat, Sky & Quad LNB


Active Member
Hi All,

Very quick question.

I currently have a sky+ subscription set up with a quad LNB connected to the dish. If a were to purchase freesat would it be as simple as connecting it up to the two free ports on the LNB and then hock it up to the TV.

No need to do anything that will effect my sky set up?

I just don't fancy another dish connected to the house, OH wont like it :suicide:

Yes that would work fine..

Though - Current Freesat box which will be available at launch will only require a single socket on your LNB, as there isn't any Freesat PVR's available - Just yet..!

Did I read some-where aswell that some of the freesat boxes will have a passthrough feature ? so you can pass your existing sky/sky+ cable through the freesat box ??
