Should I get my TV package from the same supplier as my broadband and phone?
Many providers offer broadband, phone and TV as integrated bundles. These bundles tend to include broadband and a phone line all from the same provider.
This could result in a cheaper monthly price compared to paying for web, phone and TV services separately.
Also, because there’s only one bill, many people find it a much more convenient way to pay for their internet, calls and media entertainment.
Do I have to install a satellite dish on my home?
Free digital TV services like FreeView don’t require a satellite dish – all you need for these basic TV packages is a set-top box.
However, digital satellite TV services such as Sky do require a dish on your home.
The dish is there to receive digital signals, which are then sent to a set-top box which decodes the signal. The set-top box then sends its information into a digital-ready TV.
Installing a dish requires an expert, but this will be taken care of by your digital TV provider. There are different types of dishes, and different places where the dishes can be placed (such as the roof or side of your house). Your installer will advise you on the best approach.
