Information about installing the changing from Sky kit:

If you already have a working sky dish then this DIY kit will receive UK Freesat channels as this service uses the same satellite to broadcast to Ireland and the UK. This kit contains a compact aerial which you can install outside to also view the Saorview channels . Both Saorview and Uk Freesat services can be viewed on the set top box using the same remote control displaying a combined Ireland and Uk channel list.

If you are changing from a sky + box you may be able to 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.
You simply replace your sky box with the included Amiko combo receiver and install (outside) the small aerial included for Saorview channels using one of your existing cables if you were using a sky+ box. Please be aware that when replacing a Sky Q box you must also change the LNB on the dish to a standard LNB. You can find LNB's here.
If you need to run a new cable for the small Saorview aerial (included) then please choose this using the checkbox option above.

What's included with this purchase?

An Amiko Combo receiver which will allow you to watch Saorview and UK Freesat channels . You can view Saorview RTE,TV3,TG4 using the included compact aerial. You can also select options for a mounting bracket with fixing screws and 20m of cable with connectors if you need them (if you are changing from sky + you can use one of the two existing cables) .

Will I need a dish or an aerial to use this receiver?

Yes you will require a sky dish to view UK Freesat channels and a small aerial (included in kit) to view Saorview (RTE)

What direction should the aerial be pointed ?

Please click on Saorview Coverage checker which will allow you to enter your location and show you the correct direction.

What TV services and channels will this receiver allow me to watch?

You will be able to watch a broad range of the most popular free channels from the UK via Freesat, and from Ireland via Saorview. The package includes RTE, BBC, ITV, UTV NI, Channel 4 etc. and includes both high definition (HD) and standard definition channels. The box is pre programmed with free satellite channels from the UK and it takes just a few moments to add your local Saorview service. For a full list of the channels you'll be able to watch please click here.

Can I use one remote control for Saorview and Freesat channels on one combined channel list?

Yes remote control is included.

Can I record and pause live TV using this receiver?

Yes, this receiver will allow you to pause and also do timed recordings of programs. It doesn't contain its own hard drive though, so you'll need to save the programs on either a USB stick or USB hard drive and we can also supply a hard drive as an option above. While you are recording a Saorview programme, you'll be able to watch a satellite channel, and the other way round.

Can I watch media files I have downloaded from the internet using my computer ?

Yes the box supports many files types.


  Great product, excellent service, fast delivery  Highly recommended! My order was delivered within 24 and was very easy to install. Great customer service via email when I needed some extra support to tune in channels that were hard to get in my area.  (02/11/2020) Muireann - Cork

  Excellent, well worth the change   Does exactly what it says, easy to install and prompt delivery.  (16/10/2020) -

  simple to install, pre-programmed, great reception  I am technically minded so installation was simple,moved both co-ax feeds from Sky box to the new box and then removed the RF feed from LNP (dish) and put it into the attic where I connected it to the aerial. All the channels popped up, great reception.  (09/10/2020) Mark - Dublin

    Didn't know we had to install it ourselves. Instructions were very hard to follow. We didn't know how to install the antenna so had to get a TV man in to install it for us. Once it was installed though, the channels and TV works fine. Thank you.  (02/10/2020) - North Dublin
Our Reply: Not sure how you did not know this as it has DIY (do it yourself) in the product tiltle.

  Excellent product . Very helpful service  Arrived on time, Very easy to install. Country house and was able to leave Ariel in the attic with still great reception.Got all the Freesat and Saorview channels that was stated on the site.  (05/09/2020) Bryan - Galway
