Sky+ receivers

Sky+ HD receivers

other satellite receivers with two satellite dish inputs

No need for a technician visit, just connect this cable to the end of your existing lead using the

supplied coupler and the other end to your equipment - job done!

No loss in signal - this is the thicker cable that some Sky engineers commonly use

An awesome price, bought exactly the same set for ~£30 two months ago. Have some heat!

An ok cable.No wonder Sky make so much money.Probably costs them just a few pence per metre!
They should be using something like Webro WF100 for installations.

Yes, its cheap enough from screwfix and obviously only of real use externally but used internally just to ensure a good snug grip at the base of the f plug as well as ensure even with cutting off the excess trim of ground wire there is none exposed.

Why, out of curiosity?
a) I've never used self-amalgamating tape on an F-Type connector and not had a problem with water ingress even on a feed of cheap cable that has been attached to my dish for 17 years.
b) why do you or Sky need "premium" co-ax. Unless you have an extraordinarily long run between the LNB and the box (which Sky don't tend to do unless you push them) what difference does a cable like this and WF100 make with a digital signal used over "average" runs?

I've never really had a problem with a snug grip unless the cable isn't the right grade. When installing the plug, twist the ground loosely andwrap it round the cable towards the top of the remaining outer-sheath, then screw the connector on. You won't get any excess hanging out of the end of the connector.

Also available in white for same price. Voted and bought. Thanks OP.

I have always just pig tail braided the ground wire, screwed on the f plug and cut off the excess as shown with pliers.

It is not required for the pull down boots on many a Sky LNB, but boot or no boot I just do, it is cheap and I know for a fact there is not going to be any chance of any water ingress. I actually have two dishes, an 80cm motorised one (single feed no boot) with a linux receiver, as well as a quad Sky LNB Raven MK3 dish for Freesat.

Can anyone advise on the best way to get this cable down a narrow tube?

Existing sky cable is a single cable and I want to replace that with a double so I can record two channels.

Thinner Shotgun cable WF65 is the same thickness as a standard coaxial, disadvantages are loss over long runs of 10m or more, other disadvantages are due to the lack of thickness you need narrower f plugs....(cheapest place screwfix), and the inner copper wire is thinner making a weaker connection on the back of your receiver.

Link to [thinner F Plugs] for WF65 cable.

Thanks for the post. Considering relocating my TV and Sky box in the living room so this will be ideal at the price!

Always dubious when a cable core isn't listed, are these CCA cables ?

You might be better off buying a 10m run without the connectors and then feed the cable through, then fit the connectors yourself.

wf100 good stuff, I used that to replace the old sky cables, when I put my own freesat dish up.

yep, the interior thread of the metal F-Type connector grips the rubber outer and holds it in place just by screwing on.

can this not be used similarly for Virgin media cables too?

Yes mate works fine here

I wouldn't bother to be honest. Pay a little extra for a solid copper core, CCA cables are pretty low grade and it's not a massive price difference between them.
