If you’re currently having trouble with your satellite dish or the signal isn’t as good as you’d like it to be, it may be time you considered an upgrade, especially if you want to enjoy all the benefits of HD satellite channels.

Upgrading your satellite dish

Over time, satellite dishes can be damaged by bad weather and result in poor signal performance. If this is the case then please get in touch and we’d be happy to take a look at it for you. If you are getting a bad signal it might be a simple case of re-positioning the dish and we will look at this option before going for a replacement. However, if you’ve had your satellite dish a long time then it’s likely that general wear and tear is what’s causing the problem and a replacement dish is probably your best option.

Replacement satellite dishes are available in aluminium, plastic, mesh and steel. Plastic and mesh satellite dishes tend to be the most expensive and they are more durable. Steel dishes are the cheapest and tend to be more prone to the elements than plastic or mesh.

It is possible to erect and install a replacement dish yourself but unless you know what you’re doing then it can be a time consuming, complicated and frustrating process. There are also the health and safety implications to think about because you’re likely to be working at a height. We would always advise you to use a professional aerial installer so that you can have peace of mind that the job is being done properly and that all the relevant insurances are covered.

If you think you may need a replacement satellite dish and would like a professional opinion, then please get in touch. We would be happy to help.
