Information about installing the changing from Sky kit:

If you already have a sky dish then this will work for UK Freesat channels as this service uses the same satellite to broadcast to Ireland and the UK . You simply replace your sky box with the included Ariva combo receiver and install the small aerial included. Please be aware that when replacing a Sky Q box you must also change the LNB on the dish to a standard LNB

This kit contains a compact aerial so you can view the Saorview and Uk Freesat services on the same box using the same remote control displaying a combined Ireland and Uk channel list.

If you are changing from a sky + box you can use one of the existing cables going to the dish to connect to the aerial for saorview, an adapter for that cable is included. In this case you do not need to run a new cable.

If you need to run a new cable for the small Saorview aerial (included) then please choose this using the checkbox option above.

  Good Little Box  Easy to set up and worked well straight away. The only downside is that the EPG only displays for the channel you are watching, otherwise, a great little box.  (03/12/2018) Mike - Ennis
