Can I watch SKY Q in my motorhome or caravan?

We know some of our customers choose to take their SKY™ box away with them on their adventures allowing them to watch SKY™ on their holiday. Sky Q™ is broadcast very differently from SKY + and SKY HD and requires a compatible LNB (see our LNB guide)

We have created some useful information to help our customers understand what they need to be able to watch SKY Q™ whilst on holiday.

It is the responsibility of the end user to understand the contractual agreement between themselves and SKY™ and any limitation of equipment this may have. In no event will Maxview be liable or any indirect, incidental or consequential damages.

What are the differences between Maxview SKY Q™LNB only system and SKY Q™ & FTA (Free to Air) LNB  system?

SKY Q only

If you only ever want to use a SKY Q™ receiver, then a ‘SKY Q™ only’ system is ideal for your requirements. It will allow you to watch SKY Q™ channels but wouldn’t be compatible if you wanted to change your receiver at any time.

If you are not sure what you may want to watch in the future, then we recommend the SKY Q™ & FTA (Free To Air) option below, which give you less commitment and more freedom.

SKY Q™ & FTA (Free To Air) option

This has dual function and most popular choice. This option gives the user 2 options of receivers they can use, both SKY Q™ & FTA (Free To Air). For more information on satellite receivers please click here.
