I want to get a company to put me up a dish so I can get both satellites, Astra and Hotbird. Is it possible to do this with ONE dish and a dual LNB? Also are they the only 2 satellites worth watching in the UK?

Also I am in Preston UK, does anyone know of a decent supplier and installer that will do this for me,

Thanks

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Depends to some extent upon which "Astra" you want.

Astra 2 at 28.2 E is chiefly UK channels (BSkyB + Freesat Platforms)

Astra 1 at 19.2 E is chiefly German plus a few others

Astra 3 at 23.5 E is Czech, German etc.

I guess you mean Astra 2?



Also, what is worth watching depends upon your interests and preferences. The beauty of multi-sat is that there is a great deal of interest and every one of us has different wants and needs.
