Exactly right Ian. ..


Taken from Maplins web site

"Q) Does this work with sky? Does this work with freeview tv? - pixie

A) No and no.


Q) Does this unit have a card reader. - Chris

A) Sadly no."



Only a SKY box will take a Sky card (you can get around this but expensive) so the kit is only good for Free to air stuff . .. and you might lose the signal when it rains as the dish is a little small. ... and I have a wife & two kids to feed so please buy from me. .. :D

The satellite works perfect in all weathers.

I made a mistake about the card as i have two receivers. Maplin one does not need a card but still works in all weathers.

The smaller the dish the easier it is to align.
