So, you want to connect a satellite receiver to multiple televisions. One of the great downsides to satellite television versus cable television is that sometimes you can hook up a television to cable without a dedicated receiver, you can not with satellite. Each television needs its own satellite receiver, and each receiver will give you an additional monthly charge on your bill. However, with a simple wire addition, you can have one receiver run two or more televisions

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the satellite out coaxial output on the back of your satellite receiver. This will be a small round silver screw with a pinhole in the middle. If there is a wire attached, trace it to the other end (likely in one of your televisions) and disconnect it. If not, add one of your coaxial wires to this port.

  2. 2

    Connect the coaxial wire from the satellite receiver to the input on your coaxial splitter.

  3. 3

    Connect another coaxial wire to one of the outputs on your coaxial splitter, then connect the other end to one of your televisions. Repeat for each television.

  4. 4

    Set your television(s) to channel three. You should now be receiving a signal from your satellite receiver on each of your televisions.
