New to satellite - thinking of a Blade Media 7000S ?

This discussion thread has 66 messages.

I'm not new to 'special boxes' having owned/flashed/entered keys for a Eurovox back in the days of Nag2 with virmin cable. Now that's not an option I'm thinking of going the sat route.


I already have FreeSat installed and fully functional with a 4 LNB feeding 3 rooms (1 room has a twin tuner box).

So can someone confirm that what I propose is 'do-able'


1 - The Freesat dish is pointed at Astra 2E?? So no dish re-alignment will be necessary to receive Sky channels?

2 - The cabling is already in place, so it would just be a case of swapping the freesat boxes (Humax) with the Blade 7000S 's ?

3 - Would it matter that I am not a Sly customer? ie Do I need to put their card into the Blade 7000S?


Many thanks

1/ that will be fine
2/ yes just swop box
3/ no card required but you will need a csline sub to get the non freeviw chans or you can use a sky card in the blade.

Thanks, much appreciated.

I know that we can't really talk about csline, but would it be ok to ask how much would be a reasonable monthly amount of for a good service
