Engineer “Sean” was punctual, polite, and very skilled. The problem was resolved quickly, without fuss. I would definitely recommend this company, the price charged was reasonable. Thank you, Sean, and TV Aerial Specialists !
Shaun gave us a very reasonable quote in the morning and was back that afternoon to wall mount our TV. He was very professional, friendly and honest and is an asset to your company. The job was done quickly and we are really impressed with the work. Would highly recommend!
Richard and Shaun came out to mount a tv and put an ariel into my loft for better quality. From ringing for a quote and carrying out the work it was very quick. They described everything to me and did a fantastic job. No mess and very professional. Highly recommended. I need some more work carried out in future and will be using this company again.
Shaun helped us both to install a new TV aerial point and mount a TV to a wall. Shaun was highly professional, knowledgeable and also good company, who explained each job step by step. The price was reasonable considering the job and we are very pleased with the work completed today.
Highly recommend! Needed a new TV aerial bracket as the previous one was poorly secured and rattled. Sean turned up on time, and gave a sensible quote to fix it there and then. Even looked at an aerial booster in the loft as some TVs couldn’t receive terrestrial channels. Completely satisfied and would definitely use again.

Satellite TV refers to television and radio services delivered to your TV via an external satellite dish and set-top box. Signals are picked up by your satellite dish and decoded by your set-top box or satellite-enabled television. There are two main satellite TV providers here in the UK – Freesat and Sky.
Satellite television provides access to numerous services, including hundreds of free-to-view channels and the option to pause, rewind, and record live TV. With a suitable satellite receiver system, you can also enjoy international content.
With access to more on-demand channels and streaming platforms than ever before via a suitable internet connection, you might wonder if it’s worth installing satellite TV. However, if you have a poor internet connection or aerial reception, are looking to improve picture quality, or want access to additional channels and services, then investing in a high-quality, expertly fitted TV satellite can significantly enhance your viewing experience.
Our friendly and professional Lytham St Anne satellite installers are available 7 days a week to visit your property, assess your unique requirements, and provide expert advice on how a new or replacement TV satellite could benefit you. Simply give us a call on 0808 169 2929, or book an appointment online today.
While in some cases it’s possible to install satellite TV yourself, we highly recommend investing in the services of a professional satellite fitter. Before attempting a TV satellite installation, you should ask yourself the following questions:
Installing satellite TV can be a complex job, so for your personal safety and guaranteed results, we strongly advise hiring a qualified local satellite installer to suggest the best option for you. At TV Aerial Specialists, our experienced satellite fitters are CRB checked, CAI Plus accredited, and fully trained to install, service, and repair all satellite TV receiver systems – so you can rest assured that your TV viewing experience is in safe and capable hands.

The cost of installing satellite TV is dependent on many factors, including the type of satellite dish you require, where the dish is situated, who you choose to install it, how many TV points it needs to be connected to, and where you live. As every job is unique, we cannot provide an accurate estimate without visiting your property to assess your specific requirements. For this reason, we offer a site survey, during which a qualified local satellite fitter will visit your home or business premises, test the signal available in your area, and explain the options available to you.
At TV Aerial Specialists, we’re committed to providing affordable satellite TV installation services throughout Lytham St Anne, as well as the wider North West and Yorkshire area. Our lowest price guarantee means in the unlikely event that you find an identical product or service cheaper elsewhere, we promise to beat it. That said, if you’re unhappy with our quote, decide not to go ahead, or need a little time to think about our proposal, that’s absolutely fine.
As a professional satellite installation company, we pride ourselves on providing quick and efficient TV satellite installations throughout Lytham St Anne. In most cases, we can offer you an appointment the same day you get in touch, during which our experienced satellite fitters will visit your property, carry out a signal test, and provide you with a quote for our services. If you’re happy with our proposal, we can usually install a new or replacement satellite TV receiver system there and then.
The time it takes to fit your satellite and connect it to your TV is dependent on various factors, including the signal quality in your area, the type of satellite you are having installed and where, how many TV points it needs to be connected to, and so on, meaning we cannot provide an accurate estimate until we have assessed your property’s unique requirements. That said, most satellite TV installations take between 2 and 6 hours, so we recommend blocking off half a day to ensure we have enough time to complete the job to the highest standard.
What size satellite dish you need is dependent on a few factors – the main one being where you live in the world. Generally speaking, the further you are from the equator, the bigger the dish you will require. This is because the satellites remain in geostationary orbit around the equator and signal strength is weaker in areas that are further away from these satellites.
For UK residents, dish size ranges from around 40 to 65 centimetres, depending on whether you live in the north or south of the country. Other factors affecting required dish size include the spot beams of the satellite themselves, and whether or not the dish has additional functions to help improve reception.
At TV Aerial Specialists, we’re pleased to supply and install a variety of satellite receiver systems. Once we’ve visited your property, carried out a signal survey, and assessed your unique requirements, our Lytham St Anne satellite engineers can recommend the best satellite dish for you. For more information, give us a call on 0808 169 2929, or book online today.
Freesat began as a joint venture between the BBC and ITV, and was developed to provide greater network coverage for all of the UK. Both Freesat and Freeview – the UK’s digital terrestrial television service – are now owned by the company Digital UK, although still they operate as separate consumer entities.
Available to 98% of all UK households, Freesat offers over 200 free-to-air TV channels and radio stations, transmitted via digital satellite. The service also features an easy-to-use Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) so you can see what’s on TV up to 8 days in advance. Many Freesat boxes feature apps for standard streaming services such as BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub – however, these are accessed via broadband connection rather than satellite.
Freesat boasts over 170 of the UK’s top TV channels, including many in HD, all of which can be viewed without a subscription. This is more than Freeview – the UK’s digital terrestrial television service – thanks to improved reception and wider bandwidth.
With Freesat, you can also enjoy on-demand and catch-up players, including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, and Youtube, along with subscription services such as Netflix and Prime Video – just to name a few.

Most probably, yes! Freesat was developed to provide greater network coverage throughout the country and is available to 98% of UK households with a suitable satellite dish installed.
That said, if there is nowhere to position a dish at your property, or you live in a rented property, listed building, or conservation area, you might be one of the few households who struggle to access Freesat. Our team of experienced local satellite engineers can advise further on this and help you find a practical solution – simply give us a call on 0808 169 2929, or book an appointment online.
Usually, yes! Sky engineers typically have a waiting time of 2-3 weeks and are restricted on the height and position of where the satellite dish will be fit, meaning they are often unable to complete the installation. However, our own Lytham St Anne satellite installers are not constrained by these rules and can generally visit your property, assess your requirements, and complete the installation the same day you get in touch.
