My recollection is that in the analogue days satellite reception equipment was essentially “off the shelf” and not manufactured specifically for Sky. You bought and provided your own equipment.

You have to remember that initially the only Sky channel that was pay was Sky Movies, the others were still free to air. Sky Sports didn’t go pay until after it got the Premier League and everything else remained FTA until Sky launched the Sky Multichannels package on 1st September 1993, which was the real point it started becoming a pay-TV operator rather than a broadcaster that happened to have some content on a sub basis.
