How to hide your satellite television dish
Satellite TV dishes allow people to access a myriad of channels and unique content, but their size can sometimes harm a home’s aesthetics. While this cutting-edge of obtrusive tech might not look out of place on a modern property, it can spoil the appearance of period and listed buildings.
Unfortunately, satellite dishes must be installed outside, but that doesn’t mean their presence can’t be minimised. Read on to find out how.
Tuck it behind the chimney
Homes with chimneys offer an easy way to hide their dish. Simply add your installation on the reverse side of your chimney to keep them tucked out of sight. All cabling can be routed behind drainpipes with cable ties to keep it tidy and hidden. To ensure your dish is installed securely, a professional fitter is advised.
Use a roof mount
Homes with flat roofs that can’t be viewed from the ground are also ideal. Install your dish using a weighted-down roof mount, but ensure your signal isn’t being blocked by the roof line or chimney. For the best signal, consult an expert installer.
Finally, satellite dishes don’t have to be installed high up. You can angle them upwards at ground level in your garden and disguise them with ornaments and potted plants.
