Which cable goes between a communal sky socket and a freesat box

I've searched all over for this but it doesn't seem like many people have the same set up. Just moved to a building with communal sky...there are loads of sockets in the wall. I bought a freesat box after reading you could use it with a sky socket...but I naively thought that the box would contain all the cables I would need, but I need the cable that would go from the wall socket into the back of the freesat box, but am drawing a blank. Any ideas?

You need a standard satellite cable, the fact that it's a communal dish should not be an issue. Google satellite cable for suppliers or try local DIY shops, or satellite installers.

F-connectors on both end. Screw to the satellite connector on the wall socket, and to the satellite input on the Freesat box.

Thanks - I've bought one that looks like that from a local shop. Hopefully I can get it all up and running when I get home.

Yes, they're that easy to get, and it's nearly as easy as plugging in an aerial cable, but be a bit more careful - fully power off the receiver until the job's done, don't bend the central core of the cable, don't get the screws cross-threaded, etc.
