I have just moved into a new house that has a satellite dish but no digital Arial can i use a decoder connected to the dish and cables to get terrestrial tv     

Asked by: john
There is no such thing as a "digital" aerial. This is an expression invesnted by dubious aerial installers to make you buy more. If you have a TV aerial, it will (probably) work perfectly well for Freeview. This box will receive terrestrial TV with your roof aerial, and it will receive satellite TV with your dish. A dish that works for Sky will pick up the free (inclusing BBC/ITV/etc) channels happily.

Yes, I am pleased to advise this will work in the way you intend, however you may not get sound, unless your monitor has built in speakers.
