To be able to watch Freesat you need access to a signal from a satellite dish. You can get this either through your own dish or from a communal dish.

Many blocks of flats and apartments are fitted with a communal TV system. This can provide anything from a single TV signal to TV, satellite and radio signals. If your flat has an outlet plate like either of the images on this page then you should have access to a satellite signal. But if the system has not been properly installed or maintained then this signal may not be good enough for reliable viewing.

If there is a problem with your communal TV signal then we can contact the company looking after the maintenance of the building about resolving the problem.

For situations where a satellite signal cannot be received through a communal TV system you will have to have your own dish. As long as your flat faces roughly south then you will probably be able to have your own dish fitted.
