Installing Satellite Television Systems

Satellite television packages such as Sky HD, Sky Q, Sky Q Ultra HD and FreeSat offer a huge number of free-to-air channels and many exclusive TV channels not available through digital services. Satellite subscription packages can include sport channels with extensive coverage of the Premiership Football, Formula 1 and other popular sports. Movie channels enable viewers to keep up with the very latest premieres and biggest blockbusters from the comfort of their own home.

A wealth of High Definition channels and soon to be launched Ultra HD/4K content plus Interactive/On Demand TV services can be enjoyed on UK satellite services.

Beyond the UK, European Satellite Installation using the Hotbird satellite system gives access to television channels from Europe and the Middle East.

Sky Satellite subscriptions can include a multi-room option, which means customers can connect additional Sky boxes to their existing Sky satellite dish.

Sky Q is the latest addition to the SKY family of services and technology. The latest technology offers the viewer the chance to watch any show on any screen in their home, or indeed mobile device, phone or tablet. The Q Silver Box is also capable of outputting 4K/UHD content which SKY are launching mid August 2016. In addition the Silver Box has a massive 2TB capacity and features 5 tuners.

Fixed International and European satellite systems are at the forefront of telecommunications technology and ADS provides high quality installations and the comprehensive maintenance of these systems.


Operated by Eutelsat, the Hotbird and Astra satellites make it possible to project thousands of international television channels to your UK satellite dish. By realigning your dish and fitting it with a Monoblock LNB, you can choose an incredible range of European TV channels from countries such as Spain, Portugal and Russia. Customers can even select international television stations from places like Africa and the Middle East. Satellite channels are hosted in a large variety of languages, including Arabic, Indian, Spanish, French, Polish and Slovakian.

Whether you wish to access foreign football coverage with commentary in your own language or watch your favourite Brazilian soap on ‘Rede Globo’ – International Satellite TV will allow you to access the relevant channels from right here in the UK. It is also possible for customers to receive a variety of religious television programmes to suit their specific requirements.

European and International Fixed satellite systems can be installed using a variety of digital satellite providers and can include free-to-air channels, subscription packages and specialised encrypted channels. (Please note encrypted channels will require a decryption card to view.)


ADS Digital engineers can advise you on receiving the appropriate European or International programming for your specific viewing requirements. We will then install a fixed European or International satellite system that will give you the best reception possible. Using equipment that strictly conforms to Digital Satellite Control protocols, our European satellite installers can build new installations or alternatively realign your existing satellite dish to the optimum position, allowing you to receive multiple signals – often on the same dish. We will review your current satellite receiver with the option of adjusting it to an International system or offer unbiased advice for a new upgraded installation that would provide a more effective International satellite set up for your building.
