When our previous dish failed, my research led to Satgear. I telephoned to discuss my needs and arrived at the Vuesat easy beam flat panel system to match my Avtex TV. It was shipped out to the site where we were staying and was set up in minutes - the longest part was opening the packaging! A few days later, camping in a very exposed place, the tripod was rock solid and continued to function perfectly - not a situation we were used to. You can see our Spaniel enjoys watching TV!
I bought a cheap sat/tv set up, what a mistake, a big mess around to get a poor quality picture, I had the good fortune to come across satgear who were a mine of information and advise. Nothing was too much trouble, I bought an avtex tv with the compatible vuesat square flat (I will call it a dish) and tripod which is very compact and easy to assemble and store, NO sticking out lnb, NO sat finder needed NO external tuner needed. Just minutes to set up, and takes me 30 seconds to lock on to the satalite, it also works in Scotland ! I would recommend this set up for anyone over 10 years old, don't make the same mistake I made, get the right thing for the job is cheaper in the long run, if I have any future requirements it will be from Satgear.
Before the lockdown I was researching sat dishes as my new Avtex tv recieves HD channels. I decided on the easybeam as it has the easyfind system which is compatible with my tv.Finding on the website that online orders could be processed promptly and safely I rang and had a nice chat with the Lady who is half of the ownership of the business. After having my questions answered I placed an order which duly came 2 days later by DPD. If you can see my picture you can see that I could not wait until I could use the caravan and set it up with the tv in the summer house. It is as easy as they say and I was most impressed with the quality of the build and the quickness it can be set up and packed away.no need for a satfinder and no locking on to the wrong satellite al HD channels were perfect.In the picture the dish is set high because of obstacles. I givethis company and it’s products the highest recommendation.
I have over a number of years bought various items from Darren and his team but this time they excelled themselves in how to look after and full fill a customers needs. Information supplied and delivery of new equipment was brilliant . l will return for more items as and when. Congratulations to all at SATGEAR

Hi, Order arrived exactly when you said, excellent delivery. Have just been out and set it up, took about 10 minutes. I'm now sitting in my caravan, in the driveway, coffee in hand and watching satellite television with a perfect picture. Many, many thanks for your excellent advice and professionalism. Tom Quinn.
The gear is working well, we have just had a 6 week holiday in France staying in a number of sites each time being able to connect to a satellite and watch TV.
The information provided is easy to follow but when i did have a problem you were on the end of the phone.
Hello Darren and team. Just wanted to let you know I got it all working at first try. I bought your kit to put on my flats balcony because our building communal system keeps breaking down and now they say they won’t fix it for 4 to 6 weeks, which is ridiculous. I got your kit yesterday, put it all together last night but didn’t look for the signal until this morning. Got it within a couple of mins with an iPad sat finder app so I didn’t need the meter but that’s ok. It’s good to have it as a back up. I’m very happy to finally have signal to my sky box. Your instructions were very good... I’m happy to say it’s all working perfectly And I’m very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you very much.
I ordered a satellite system for my caravan which came a day before expected which was great. Set up and watching TV in no time albeit with a faulty remote control. A quick phone call to a very pleasant chap and one was sent out first class next day delivery and works a treat....now thats service well done folks ????
I purchased a 80cm dish as we visit France. Initially the set up didn't work - after testing out a new LNB the problem was identified as the receiver which was promptly replaced and the system works fine now. The willingness and help given by Satgear to sort out the problems was brilliant - I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying a system
A short note to let you know that I am very happy with the Satgear System. As your description says it is very easy to set-up and use and I was up and running very quickly indeed. I was very surprised with the quality of the picture and agree with you that it is fantastic. Our next trip is coming up shortly where I know that there is no TV signal so I will look forward to watching a crisp clear picture. Many thanks again.
This is a very belated thank you for rescuing Janet & I when in Croatia in May with our caravan. We had tried to home in on English programmes but could only pick up the German transmission from the satellite. Unfortunately we had clicked on to ‘Factory settings’ not realising that the receiver had come from Germany and been converted by yourselves. WE NOW KNOW WHAT NOT TO DO!!!!! Your solving of our situation with much determination on your part, despite the lateness of the hour was very much appreciated. We had goodish reception there and when near Annecy received all BBC programmes. We look forward to getting it right in 2020 when we plan to return to Croatia.
Again, many thanks.
Very pleased to receive my order of the Premium Flat 440 portable dish unpacked and set up in about 5 minutes perfect signal and quality readings. This is going to be such an improvement to the heavy dish we have carried in our caravan for years. The tripod in the kit is of very high quality and very stable. Very happy.
We purchased an EasyBeam Premium kit earlier this year.It does what it says on the tin.Once the general direction of the signal is established with a compass the set up is easy with our Avtex TV.In the UK it is a doddle and the signal is found in minutes.In France we found a signal as far south as a parallel with Valence and westwards but at times it took some tweaking of the dish inclination to get a better quality picture.Points to improve:the cable from the dish is too thin,tangles too easily and may not be very durable (- Satgear edit: thicker cable now supplied. The thin cable can be supplied on request) and a wing nut instead of a nut on the fixing to the tripod would be better. Worth the money as the kit is much more compact than an arm dish when packing away in our PVC MH.Fumbling with cold fingers I dropped the nut which secures the dish to the tripod and lost it.A phone call for a replacement proved that the after sales service was excellent.
Just purchased the Viewsat Easybeam premium flat dish. The product came via parcel Force within the specified time. I followed the simple instructions and got to the stage where all cables were in the correct place. The dish was set at the recommended elevation and set in roughly the right direction. I turned on the Tv and receiver. The instructions said I should have No Signal sign showing which I did. The I should press info and then info again, which would turn on the easy find. Nothing happened. I went back over everything and tried again still nothing happened. I changed the batteries in the remote. Same again. Then my lad turned up and asked if I’d checked the source of input on my TV. I’m a technophobe and didn’t know what he meant. He just turned my TV to HDMI. Within 2 minutes I was watching Satelite TVwith a perfect picture. If I’d have known about the HDMI it would have taken a total of 10 minutes to set up. I would definitely recommend this dish kit
