You’ll need a satellite dish, but if you don’t have one already, you can book an installation in store when you buy your Freesat box or TV.
A few homes may not be able to get Freesat as their dish can’t be positioned to see the satellite properly.

What do you need for Freesat?
If your set top box or recorder is a Freesat receiver, you will require a satellite dish aligned with Astra 28.2°E and Eutelsat 28A. You will need to connect the satellite dish via an LNB cable to the LNB socket on the back of the unit.
Is Freesat free?
Unlike Freeview, however, Freesat works via satellite – meaning you can get a few extra channels that aren’t available for free any other way, like PBS America, BET, and tons of music TV. There’s no monthly subscription – all you need is a satellite dish and a Freesat box on your telly (£50-£220).
Are Freeview and Freesat the same?
Freeview and Freesat users both get access to a digital TV service without paying a monthly fee or signing up to a contract. The difference is in the delivery: Freeview: delivered through an aerial and a set top box. Freesat: delivered through a minidish and a set top box.
