1) Identify your South Facing Wall: The dish needs to be on a South facing wall in order to pick up the Astra 2A, 2B, 2D and Eurobird1 satellites. Identify your south facing wall and look to mount your satellite dish on the outside of the wall, at the nearest point to your main TV. Tip: Look at your neighbours’ houses someone is sure to have Sky, see which way their dish is facing. If none of your neighbours have Sky, you can use a compass to determine which wall faces south. Please note that the mounting bracket can be mounted on either a wall or a flat roof. Roof Mount Wall Mount
