  21. Jacques

    Hi, what is the difference between the dish and the aerial decoder in terms of signal quality, programme quantity, etc?

    • Ezekiel Ochami

      Hi, satellite decoder is hd hence better signal quality. It also has a little bit more stations, although more expensive. The satellite decoder (combo) can work with a tv aerial to receive same satellite channels.

      Aerial decoder has poor video quality although cheaper. The classic package has most channels including all sports channels.
