What Is A Motorised Satellite Dish?

1 Comment9 May 2014  |  Ashley

You may have been hearing more and more about motorised satellite dishes and the benefits of using one for your satellite TV system. Growing in popularity since 2005, fitters are now saying that they install more and more motorized dishes every year.

Satellite television used to be seen as grainy and with poor content, but these days a motorised satellite dish can pick up around 10,000 digital channels, which makes it a whole lot of viewing pleasure for the little it costs to install the dish.

What Is A Motorised Satellite Dish?

A motorised satellite dish is different from a standard satellite dish, which are static and face in one direction in order to get one set of channels from a certain satellite or group of satellites. A motorised dish is controlled using a sat finder, which helps you work out where channels are, and allows you to point your dish in that direction. When you are finished watching that channel, you can simply find another and turn the dish to face it. Having that freedom to move is very important for what a motorised satellite dish is for, which is watching thousands of channels which are not in any standard UK satellite TV packages.

What Makes A Motorised Satellite Dish Better Than Other Options?

People will always point out that you could simply pay to access channels, rather than using a motorised satellite dish to find channels. However, using a paid for service means having a dish which only faces in one direction, giving you access to fixed set of channels which you have paid for. It does not allow you to access channels which you are able to find with a motorised satellite dish.

Can I Pick Up Foreign Satellite Channels?

Many people who use a motorised satellite dish enjoy television in other languages, whether they are practicing their language skills, brushing up on a language their parents speak, or simply watching in their first or bilingual language. There are many sports channels available to access via a motorised satellite dish in various languages, and there are also adult content channels which some may find appealing. Those who prefer a motorised dish to paid services usually enjoy having their content in another language, rather than seeing is as a flaw.

With a larger dish, you can access a lot of content which may be shown in English, or with subtitles, and a lot of radio content is also in English, which many people find they enjoy greatly. There are a few hidden gems which you will soon pick up, such as watching opera via German satellites, or French sporting channels for skating. For some items, it does not matter which language you are watching it in, especially arts and classical music, which are broadcast in their original language.
