"A satellite dish can last for many years. We have replaced dishes that have been there for twenty years plus. Dishes on the coat/ seaside places don’t last as long due to the weather conditions and salty air."

"It depends on the location and the quality and environment"

"Hard to be exact, there are 2 parts, the dish itself which obviously is subject to the effects of weather and corrosion and the receiver (LNB) which in time may become outdated and need replacing with a more modern version if you update your system."

"The dish itself lasts a very long time it's the LNB on the end of the dish that goes faulty. You could be looking at 5 years before it goes or 2 years, but an easy fix to replace"

"On average i would say 10-12 years although in coastal areas i have seen them rust much faster.
LNB's the part on the front of the dish can fail at any time.
New LNB,s would not fit on older type dishes.
Hope this helps."

"Hi the longevity of the dish will depend if you are near to coast, and if so as little as 2-3 years but generally 7-10 years."
