A motorised satellite dish is one that, as the name suggests, is powered by a motor. This means the motor can be used to easily turn the dish, and find a number of different satellites, giving even more potential channels. It can be a small motor, and hence not a hugely expensive system.
However, when it comes to any satellite installation, particularly such a motorised one, it’s wise to let the professionals set things up, rather than attempting to DIY it. Not that the latter is impossible if you’re technically savvy, not by any means, but for most folks, a motorised dish is generally something you should get a local installation firm out to sort out.
Experts should be able to pick out the right dish, not to mention motor – as some can be quite noisy, which isn’t ideal. Unless your dish is some distance from your living room and not audible – though even then, you might want to think about the neighbours in the garden!
