I'm looking to get rid of my satellite services. Both Sky and Freeview.

The house doesn't have a roof arial and does not have separate cabling for terrestrial at all in the house.

So, my question is... If I removed (disconnected) the satellite dish and had an arial installed, could I use the existing satellite cabling around the house to carry the terrestrial digital signal to the TV(s)?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

You could put a diplexer on at the roof, it plugs a satellite and terrestrial antenna in and carry's the signal over the same  cable. Gives you the option of having either option then.


This youtube video should explain it.
