    Well I'm moving in December and the property we're buying has restrictions on where you can have a Sky dish installed, we can't have it anywhere on the front of the property but we can on the back. So my dilema is if the signal requieres a dish on the front what can I do.
    Is there anyway of having a dish in the loft or anyother options.

    Looking at the cost of the other options I think I will have to go for the pole option mounted on the back of the house.

    I couldn`t have a dish fixed to my property, the ideal location was at the front, which was a no-no, so I fixed a pole into the ground at the rear, in the garden. The dish is no more than 4 feet from the ground. Picture and signal are fine.

    Looks like i might be able to mount a dish on the rear of the house set at a right angle to the house and that should give me the south east angle.
    So now to Sky+ or not...........
