There is bound to be a YouTube video or 10 showing how to install and set up a Freesat/sky dish. Wasn't hard to replace mine. I used a meter and short lead to connect it to the LNB at the dish to max out the signal.

 But I'm not sure I understand how this Silicondust tech works. Once I plug in an aerial, I understand that it converts that signal into a wifi signal, but how do my devices, such as a regular smart TV, pick up that signal

This lists devices compatible with Silicondust IP tuners. AppleTV or a cheap Amazon FireTV stick will work.

They also have a table showing free and premium app difference. You get 24hr EPG free

Amazon were planning to launch a similar device but no news for UK yet
