When Installing sky + you will need a twin shotgun coax cable.

What is "Shotgun" coax cable.


Its a term given to a twin coax cable that looks almost like the end of a double barrel shotgun.

The cable can be bought in varying types, for use where a twin cable is required from a satellite LNB to your Sky + Digital  or HD receiver or where you require Satellite reception in 2 rooms from 1 dish.

What is considered the best coax cable brand is Webro who are a National Quality assured company to ISO 9002 standards

There are a few types ot twin coax cable, of which  Sky + recommend WF65 OR CT63 which is great for most installations.

If you are like myself and like to go one step further keeping those all important losses to a minimum, then 

Webro WF100 Twin Satellite Coax Cable should be your choice


Comparisons of the twinsat shotgun cable are shown below
