What happens to your satellite TV when you move your house?

Moving house sometime in the future? In some cases when you are shifting, or when you need to change the position of your satellite TV, you will want to know the exact procedure or steps for relocation.

Moving is often stressful, but moving with Dish does not need to be. You can use your TV, digital receiver or recorder with you. You may also prefer to take the satellite dish or UHF aerial with you or have one installed at your new home. Here is what you need to know about getting your TV service moved to your new address as easily as possible:

1)     Before The Move

The best rule before shifting is to notify your cable provider as early as possible about your move, so that they will be able to set up a flatscreen TV quickly. If you are renting, do not forget to talk to your landlord before you progress to make sure it is alright to put in a satellite television at your new property. You may be lucky, the property might already be connected.

2)     Moving Day Satellite Zone

Make sure you have a satellite dish which can connect to a satellite TV or a Hybrid or Dual Tuner TV. Once you set up and tune in the channels, you can enjoy cable TV in your new home without subscriptions.

For broadband and phone from the same provider, just give them the details and follow their instructions, assuming there are no other problems they should handle the process of cancelling your old service and then enabling your new service on the correct dates.

Cable and satellite will require an engineer to visit to set up the necessary hardware, but for satellites, you can handle this yourself as it’s simply a case of plugging in the aerial to your TV or satellite TV, and ensuring the broadband is correctly activated.

3)     Setting Up Satellite TV

If your new home already features a satellite dish, connecting your TV again may be a quick and straightforward process. If it doesn’t have a dish, an engineer will have to install a replacement satellite dish at your home.

Once your dish is installed and your account data is updated, you will be ready to enjoy satellite television in your new home. Since your set-top box is the same as before, you will retain all of your favourites and digital recordings.

4)     Once in Your New Location

Once you move to the new location, then the service provider or technician will visit you and install the satellite TV and the previous dish, but with the same user ID. Thus make sure when moving out of your previous location, you let them remove the dish connection as well as the satellite TV.

Takeaway:

Once you have got your Dish Network setup, you can move between  your Dish receivers to a different TV as long as you have got an available cable from the satellite dish to the new location. In case there are any more queries, just give us a call on 1300857575 for free standing TV set up.

Signing up for broadband, phone and TV bundles from a single provider can simplify bills and result in big savings compared to using separate companies; particularly if you take advantage of the regular special offers which involve free shopping vouchers and months or years of free broadband.
