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.

Reviews

  Great bit of kit and easy to install  Should have switched from Sky years ago, has all the stations I watch in HD which Sky didn't. Set up in 10 minutes as have easy access to the Sky dish.   (26/04/2019) Arthur - Dublin


    Purchased a change from sky kit, had it set up in less than ten minutes, after I received it, which was delivered promptly after I placed order with this company, I would highly recommend this company, and change over kit, brilliant service and channel reception   (22/03/2019) -


  Smooth Transfer  Changed from Sky to UK Free and Saorview and worked remarkably smoothly.   (15/03/2019) -


  Great value for money  The box does exactly what it is supposed to do, and the signal is of a excellent high quality. I am very happy with my purchase.   (08/03/2019) Eoin - Swords


  very happy - Tech support was super  purchased for 3rd floor apartment. Innocently thought terrestrial (saorview) aerial would work indoors - it really doesn't - NOT meant to. Tech support cleared this up and mounted/oriented on balcony rail facing south from Navan with clear view to Dublin horizon - WORKED. Girlfriend v. HAPPY!   (12/01/2019) rmoc - navan, meath


  Excellent company to purchase from  I was surprised by the speed of delivery, full marks. Setup was easy and I get HD channels I didn't have with Sky. I haven't been on the roof yet to install the aerial so I don't know how that will be. We don't seem to be missing many channels compared to Sky. EPG takes a bit of getting used to   (03/01/2019) Matt - Wicklow


  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
