I’ve just ditched Sky (yahoo!) and have returned their STB. Their satellite dish is still present on the roof, and I figured I could simply plug its cable into my TV (a 2015 LG SmartTV). Sadly, that didn’t have the desired effect as the TV’s tuner didn’t pick up any channels when it did the scan. I don’t watch much TV so am reluctant to buy any additional equipment (e.g. a FreeView box) unless I absolutely need one to view free to air channels.
What do I need to do to my existing setup, to get it to function? Does the dish itself need to be realigned to a FreeView satellite?? I don’t have a UHF aerial on the roof. I used the FreeView coverage checker : it said FreeViewPlus and MyFreeviewPlus are my best options at my address.
Thanks in advance,
