Satellite and digital TV

Need to install or upgrade an aerial or satellite? The options available to you depend on whether you live in a block or a house.

Applying for a TV / internet installation or upgrade

Blocks

If you live in a block with a communal TV Aerial system, we only provide free-to-view services. If you want to subscribe to other pay-to-view services (like Sky Q), you'll need to do this through a tablet, phone, or other media. The Trust does not deliver these services via the communal system.

This applies to all the homes included within the lists below - find your town and then your block.

Houses

If you need a dish that is larger than 70cm (eg to receive programmes in other languages), you must first get planning permission. Your satellite or aerial must then be positioned in a way that minimises its visual impact and it must be removed when you no longer need it.

Similarly, we cannot give permission to install a satellite dish if:

  • Your property is rendered (i.e. your brickwork is not exposed or is covered)

  • Your property is part of a new development (within 12 months of being built)

Complete the form at the bottom of this page

Our Asset Surveyor will look at your application within ten working days. We'll then let you know the outcome. If you didn't give us the right information, we'll also let you know what additional details we need.

You are responsible for maintaining any digital equipment installed during your tenancy.

Any damage caused during the setup/ installation of a satellite or TV aerial is your responsibility, so it may result in a chargeable repair.

Virgin Media/ Sky etc

Where is the satellite or aerial going to be? Where is the drilling going to be? What materials are going to be used? Let us know specifically what and where installation needs to happen.

Attach a Site Specific Risk Assessment and Method Statement from your installer (eg Sky), which includes details of the specification of any materials for the proposed works.

If your Method Statement and Site Specific Risk Assessment are separate files, attach the second file here.
