Thousands of satellite dishes are unused

Down almost every road in the UK there will be a satellite dish attached to a house, but has anyone ever considered exactly how many of these dishes are actually connected to a receiver?

It seems that this question has been answered with the release of new research from the distributors of Goodmans and Grundig set top boxes, Harvard International.

Apparently the amount of unused satellite dishes is somewhere between 500,000 and 600,000.

That is a lot of dishes that could be used by Freesat receivers, which is actually what Harvard International supply.

The company does have a point, as these satellite dishes are already installed and just require a Freesat receiver to receive digital TV via a set top box or Freesat enabled television, which means there are a lot of potential new customers out there.
