Single Cable Solutions

Single Cable Solutions

Chapmans Electrical are your local Sky approved installer and Sky experts for Birmingham and the West Midlands. Allowing your residents to access a full Sky+ HD service can now be accomplished over a single cable thanks to the innovative Single Cable Solutions (SCS).

Useful in flats and apartment buildings, care homes or any property with a single feed cable for Sky TV connection. By literally delivering all the benefits of a dual cable Sky+ HD system over an existing single cable, you avoid the disruption of rewiring.

Sky+ allows to pause and rewind live TV, record programs or a whole series with the press of a button or watch TV in another room with Sky Multiscreen and Sky+ HD gives access to a whole host of High Definition channels.

Upgrading your single cable Sky TV installation with the new Single Cable Solution (SCS) gives full access to Sky+ services without adding any extra cabling or requiring planning permission. Sky will even subsidise the cost of installation.

Chapmans Electrical was established in 1925 in Cradley Heath in the Black Country, near Birmingham, West Midlands. Our Sky TV services now extend beyond our neighbours in Dudley, Wolverhampton, Stourbridge, Halesowen and Brierley Hill to most of the Birmingham and West Midlands area. We cover Sutton Coldfield, Solihull, Walsall, Worcester, Shrewsbury and beyond!

With 90 years of experience we truly are your local experts. All of our work is fully guaranteed & insured and backed by the Confederation of Aerial Installers (CAI). All of our engineers are fully qualified, properly trained, well equipped, courteous and even CRB checked for your peace of mind. We are proud of our high standards and quality service and are authorised installers of LEM, Global, Teldis, Televes and other leading equipment.

How it works:

A Single Cable Router is installed which accepts the feed from two LNBs and distributes the dual feed over the existing single cabling into residents apartments. Inside each apartment, a simple splitter device is installed to separate the feed, making two connections available. The dual LNB feed is delivered unaltered to the residents and operation of a Single Cable Solution is completely transparent to Sky+ receivers.

Local authorities, housing associations and managing agents are always under pressure to provide their residents with the latest viewing platforms and single feed cable systems have, until now, restricted the viability of supplying this for them.

The cost saving when using SCS compared to rewiring is a huge factor to take into account. Installation times can be halved, so costs reduced. From previous work carried out, the changes to a block of 40+ flats can be completed in less than a day.

We can also offer a “Cost Deferment Package” to help spread the cost. Please ask for details. Call the professionals for a reliable Single Cable Solution and arrange for a Chapmans engineer to come to you.

What our Customers have to say:


Just had new electric heating installed throughout the house. Really impressed with the professionalism of the team, from the girls on the switchboard, Mark who came to do the survey and prepare the quote, through to Chris and his electricians. Any mess made was cleared up immediately and all the packaging and old equipment removed. Highly impressed from start to finish!
