We don't have a sky dish, and we want it,

The problem. - we can't get any signal.
But we have 4 giant trees in our garden, and outside we have a park and have more high trees there, so this is preventing us from getting a signal to a satellite dish,

we have had a sky engineer in the past to find signals all around our house , he got on the roof of the house to see if they could get a signal, but he didn’t get anything that a satellite dish could receive - so he couldn’t get a signal on his meter!

There is no cable in the area.

WHAT CAN WE DO, HELP _

a)Does anybody know any company’s who specialise in getting satellite dishes in Remote areas?

b)What companies/websites could help us?

c)Has anybody had this problem? how did it get solved?

d)What are the alternatives we can do to get satellite? = what can we do?


Get back
thanks,

From your description you may be one of the small amount of houses that cannot get satellite signals. If so your alternatives are limited - basically DTT.

However, the dish doesnt have to be fitted to the house - can you get one installed the other side of the trees? If not you are probably stuck.

Have you asked an independent company to check for signal? They may charge, but they will probably try a little harder than the average Sky installer.

If there is no place to site a dish with line of sight of the satellite on your plot, then is there anywhere just outside, on a neighbours house or in their garden perhaps?

If no line of sight can be found, then you will have to forget satellite, then the only other alternative, if you have a good broadband connection, is a Slingbox at a friend's house or a Sling hosting company.

I would suggest you have a look at Yellow Pages or the Thomson directory to get a local installer
