Dual tuner Freesat boxes with recording facilities are available and allow you to watch one channel while recording a second channel, or record two channels at the same time, plus a few other combinations.
You need 2 cables for that.
Can I watch Freesat in another room?
To get Freesat in more than one room, you’ll need a Freesat box or TV with Freesat built in for each room you want to receive Freesat in, attached to a single satellite dish. So you can have one of our Freesat Smart TV Recorders in your main room and a discreet, reesat Smart TV Box in a bedroom.
Can you split a Freesat signal?
Most splitters split the signal into two or more weaker signals. It’s not advisable to split the signal too many times, as it may weaken and degrade the quality of the picture and sound. A signal amplifier can be installed if the cable must be split for many rooms and TVs.
