Your strategically installed dish picks this signal and transmits to a specially designed receiver. In the course of installation, the technician will ensure that where the dish is installed is the best place for it to receive signal, and this is done with the aid of special equipment called ‘detector’. The dish is often placed on the roof of the house, and once this is done, there will be no need of moving it around again, at least the modern dish that is now in vogue does need any intermittent movement in order to pick the signal from the satellite.

Satellite signals are scrambled and therefore for you to enjoy the channel, you must have a special satellite receiver programmed to unscramble the channels for your delightful viewing. Your satellite provider will make available to you a satellite box that will unscramble the channels.

Upon you’re ordering of the satellite television, you will be provided with two basic items, and these are the satellite dish and the receiver. The satellite dish is a small circular shaped metal object. It is so designed with the purpose of collecting signals from the sky. The dish is connected to your television via a receiver box with the aid of a coaxial cable. Television signals travel from the dish to the receiver and thus transmitted to the TV. The receiver again is a small box and it is connected to the satellite signal cable. It is this cable that will now transmit the signal received to the television.
