Extortionate price for freesat
 
www.freeviewgigitaltvaerial.co.uk charged an old couple in Fife £504 for a zone 1 dish and simple installation. One of those 0845 cowboys. Even had the cheek to breakdown the price as follows

Dish £185
Long arm £40
Heavy duty bracket £65
Quad LNB £130.

plus VAT

Just a standard dish with no frills
Invoice says aerial & security as the heading

Its freeviewdigitaltvaerial - a typo above - and they are a Manchester
based and show an 0161 number.
What is more if they are selling freeview why are we talking satellite?
IF the couple live in Fife they should have a good signal from a couple
of transmitters.

I came across an aerial rigger just outside Glasgow whose by line was
"Specialist in Poor Signal Reception". He'd succeeded with installation
that I saw. Picture was so poor you could hardly make it out.

I'd want either gold plated or a banksy Mural on the dish for that.

Yes well he probably pre fills the coax with water to save time.
Actually if somebody made a talking Freesat box I'd go for it over
Freeview.

Doh.

No name, company number, nor any useful identifying information, oh and the phone number's a dud - should tell you what you need to know!
