Yes, provided that you have a legal pay tv subscription card.
Can I install it myself?
The kit is designed for a handy person to install it them self. Alternatively, I’ll be happy to install it and explain how to use it on the Gold Coast, Qld for a fee starting from $100.
How much power does the satellite receiver need?
Very little, in fact only 2 Amps. This amounts to less than half of what your TV set uses.
How do I connect the satellite dish to the satellite receiver?
We supply a custom length of quad shielded and waterproofed cable to an external thru-the-wall fitting. We also provide you with a cable to connect the internal thru-the-wall fitting to the satellite receiver using crimped F-connectors which screw into the satellite receiver making an excellent tight connection. All external connectors are sealed with a waterproof self-amalgamating tape.
What type of cable connectors are used?
We only supply top quality crimped F-connectors. Cheap push-on or screw-on connectors are useless and will work themselves loose in no time at all.
