Gabi Hampson: What you need is a dual LNB holder (the small thing on the end of the satellite dish). You need one LNB pointing towards Astra at 19.2 degrees east (this is where the current one will be pointing) and another pointing towards Astra at 28.2 degrees east (this is the satellite Sky and Freesat use). Connect the two feeds to a DiSEqC switch. You will then need a Free-to-air digital PVR, and scan for channels. If you are familiar with Satellite equipment, then you could complete this yourself. If not, I would advise getting someone more experienced to do it, as it is very easy to get wrong!

Upgrading from Sky to Freesat | Freesat

jim IOW: On the IOW, I would have thought Freeview reception would be relatively good. Maybe an aerial, cable, and receiver upgrade might be better. It would be much cheaper to buy all of those components, than set up for satellite. If you do wish to go for satellite, i'd advise on the maplin 'satellite suitcase', for Astra 28.2, i've found it to be relatively good (and I picked it up at a car boot for £2 :D ).
