Sky Dish Installation Wigan
Sky can take up to 4 weeks before they get to you. Also, in many cases, they will be unable or unwilling to carry out a Sky dish installation in Wigan at the location on your property you require. Often if a customer wants the satellite dish to be fitted on a chimney stack the sky engineer will refuse.
For this and other reasons we do satellite dish installation pretty much anywhere you require, even on a chimney stack, so long as we can get a signal. We make sure that the satellite cables are fitted discreetly and hidden from sight if possible. Along with this we can usually get to our customers within a day or two, no more waiting for 4 weeks.

Sky Repairs Wigan
Certainly, one of the most frustrating things when it comes to Sky is getting in contact with them to report a fault with the Sky TV. This can take a long time to get fixed and is something we can help with. We can quickly get to you and carry out a Sky Repair, whether that is Sky LNB replacement, Sky dish alignment, cable repairs and Sky Digi box satellite receiver upgrades and software updates.
Sky Dish Repairs
If you are having issues with receiving your satellite signal, we can take a look at your satellite dish and test the system. If the dish needs to be repaired or replaced, we carry everything on our vans to get that sorted there and then.
The satellite signal is received and bounced off the satellite dish into the receiver at the end of tha arm. This device is called an LNB. If this gets damaged or is affected by water ingress it will start to fail. When this happens the LNB needs to be replaced in order to be able to receive the satellite signal again.
Satellite Cable replacement and repairs
We can replace either twin cable or signal cable for satellite. We also will change the connectors to new ones. When we fit new coax cable we will always try to hide it as much as possible with a discreet cable installation.
Sky Box Repairs
One of the tests we do is to check the signal being received in from the dish into the Sky box. If the signal is Ok but the box isn’t operating properly, then it indicates there is a fault with the satellite receiver. We can perform a few fixes on the box to get it back up and running, but sometimes it is a case of having to replace it.
Answers to Common Questions
- Satellite Dish Installation Costs
This can depend on how many rooms the cable is going into, plus whether you want a single or twin cable. Also a factor is where the Sky dish is being fitted for instance there is a difference in cost from fitting a satellite dish at ground level to fitting it on a chimney stack. But average costs are between £130 - £200.
- Can a Sky dish be Fitted on a Chimney?
Short answer is Yes. As long as the satellite dish is pointing south east and is picking up a good signal, there is usually no good reason not to have it fitted on a chimney stack.
- Why is the Sky Link not working after Sky Q installation?
This is because the connections at the back of a Sky Q box is not the same as the Sky HD boxes. There is no option for a Sky Q box to distribute the picture with a sky link system. The only way to distribute it is via a HDMI splitter. But, with that you aren’t able to remotely turn over the channels or access anything using the remote unless you are using the actual Q box.
- Do I need internet for Sky to work?
No, but you do need internet connection if you want to use any of the catch up services or any of the online services.
- How quickly can you install a satellite dish?
Sometimes we can to our customers the same day, however, it is usually with in a day or two. Also a satellite dish installation take on average 1-2 hours.
