As mentioned, Foxtel’s deal with Telstra will expire in June 2023. So, the days of cable TV will soon be a thing of the past. When this deal comes to an end, Foxtel won’t be able to offer Foxtel TV (which includes free-to-air channels) via the cable network anymore. For this reason, they’re implementing a Satellite Priority policy whereby they offer satellite connection as the first choice to new customers.
Though the reasons to switch to satellite are more than just necessity. If you want to experience the beauty of 4K, satellite is the best route to take. When you install a Foxtel satellite dish, you’ll be rewarded with crystal clear, vibrant images.
On top of quality, switching to satellite can simplify life. You won’t have to dread cable outages which happen more often and can last for longer. Plus, with one satellite you can get access to countless content, eliminating the need to sign up for extra streaming services.
Firstly, you’ll need to check if your home is already wired for Foxtel. If it’s not, you will need to get a professional installation company in any case.
If you simply need to install a satellite dish, you will also need to hire the services of an engineer. It’s much more technical than fastening it onto your roof and calls for a high degree of accuracy and precision. If it’s installed poorly, you not only run the risk of damaging the actual satellite dish, but you could also experience bad signals preventing you from enjoying crisp images.
It also involves getting on to your roof which means that a degree of risk is involved. Plus, if you don’t regularly do this type of exercise, you’ll have an even harder time finding your footing on this unfamiliar and uneven surface.
In addition to thinking about your own safety, there’s also the lifespan of the satellite dish that can be jeopardized. Depending on the manufacturer, you might void your warranty if it’s not installed by a licensed professional.
On average, you can look forward to between 10-15 years of service. Though, if your property is near the beach, it will be closer to 10 years, possibly only seven years.
That said, in addition to the location of your property, there are a number of factors that will impact the lifespan of your dish. These include the quality of the satellite dish and installation, type of material used for manufacturing, and where it gets placed on your roof. For example, if it’s installed in a place where it will be exposed to the direct elements, you’ll likely find that you’ll need to replace it sooner.
These variables can also impact its performance. Ideally, you should get a satellite dish made from aluminum or fiberglass. While steel is a popular choice because of its cost, it can rust when the paint starts to flake. This means that while you can save money upfront, you will need to replace your satellite dish sooner, which can erase the money that was saved initially.
What does satellite dish installation cost?
Most installers will package together the satellite dish that you need along with the labor and any other materials for the job in a single quote.On average, you can expect to pay between $400 and $450 for satellite dish installation (which will include the dish) for a single storey property.
