Hot Bird - what is it?

Hot Bird is the name of a group of satellites operated by Eutelsat. These satellites transmit channels over Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Why would I want to receive Hot Bird channels?

Basically, installing a Hotbird satellite dish system will enable you to watch news, films and programs from across Europe and the Middle East. If you are looking to receive satellite television channels from other parts of the world, you will need to have receive channels broadcast from the Hot Bird or EUTELSAT satellites. You can recieve Italian, Spanish, German, Polish, Scandanavian and many other channels from a variety of countries. Some of the channels are free. Some of them require subscription.

How do I get Hot Bird channels?

You will need a satellite dish and a decoder. If you have the time, skills and patience - it is possible to tune into these channels from a SKY decoder. You may already have one of these. You will need to re-align your satellite dish. However, the easiest solution is to purchase a new decoder and / or have a qualified satellite engineer re-align or replace your satellite dish to enable you to receive the Hot Bird channels. AMkes life easier!

TestimonialI have recently moved back to the UK after spending several years in Italy. I've grown really fond of Italian television and I wanted to continue watching it. So I looked around for a way of getting the channels to my new house in Chiswick. A friend of mine recommended the Multi-Trade. We don't have a company like that in Italy. They seem to do everything. Anyway, I called them and they installed another dish so I could get the Italian channels. It was a very good service. And when I spoke to them I told them I had a problem with my boiler - and they sent a man to fix that too!

Giovanni Tosi, London

TestimonialI was looking to add some European channels to my television. So I spent a few hours retuning my decoder and adjusting the satellite dish I had installed by SKY. It proved to be more difficult than I had envisaged! So I looked on the internet and came across some satellite and aerial companies. What I liked about Multi-trade was that they sounded much more professional than the other companies when I called them. They sounded like they had done it many times before and gave me a designated slot when they could come. The other companies I spoke to were one man bands or I left voice mail messages on their mobile phones. While there is nothing wrong with a small company, none of them inspired confidence. And as it happens, I made the right choice. They made it seem straightforward. There were no surprises and the invoice was reasonable. They explained how everything worked and set it all up. And I can now receive literally hundreds of European channels. I would advise other people looking for a professional satellite installation to call Multi-Trade.

TestimonialI am happy with the dish. I am happy to be watching my programs again.

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
