Sky removing dishes to tidy up social homes

Sky is removing satellite dishes from social homes as it rolls out its communal TV service.
“It’s clear that social sector landlords care a great deal about the appearance of their properties, and that communal TV systems – which negate the need for multiple satellite dishes - can considerably improve the look of a block of flats," said Brendan Hegarty, head of Sky Communal TV Solutions.
Sky’s communal TV systems provide tenants in blocks of flats with access to services such as Freesat to HD, 3D, and TV on demand.
Importantly, the new service removes the need for each flat to have its own dish – and in addition can considerably reduce the amount of exterior cabling required.
“Whilst Sky has always endeavoured to remove all mini-dishes that are no longer required, we have now taken the step to formalise the process and to reassure our clients that the dismantling of existing mini-dishes will take place promptly, by the same installers, as the final part of their job," added Mr Hegarty.
