How to get free satellite Internet access
You can find free satellite Internet service -- for a short time. (Satellite dish image by Scrivener from Fotolia.com)

While it is possible to get free satellite Internet access for a short time, there is no way to keep it. Many Internet providers, including satellite Internet providers, will offer a combination of discounted or even free service, equipment and installation for a limited period only. After this time period is up, you are subject to regular monthly payments. Free satellite Internet television, however, is possible if you have a high-speed Internet connection.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Search the Internet for satellite Internet providers in your area. HughesNet and WildBlue are two well-known providers.

  2. 2

    Compare promotions, monthly fees and equipment fees available in your area. Some will offer 30-day free trials, free installation or a free satellite dish. Others will offer combinations of these three options.

  3. 3

    After the promotional period expires, you will be required to pay standard costs for satellite Internet service. These can range anywhere from £39 to £227 monthly, depending on the connection speed. Connection speeds range from 128 Kbps (kilobytes per second) to 300 Kbps.

  1. 1

    Find vendors that offer software to let you watch satellite TV from your computer. SatelliteSoft is one example.

  2. 2

    Complete registration and payment information. Download the software provided.

  3. 3

    Start viewing. Once you've spent £38.90 to install the software, the rest is free. This means no monthly charges or equipment fees normally associated with satellite television.
