We supply and fit Freesat boxes and dishes which is ideal for those who cannot receive Freeview.
Freesat offers a satellite alternative to the Freeview service on digital terrestrial television, with a broadly similar selection of channels available without subscription for users purchasing a receiver. The service also makes use of the additional capacity available on digital satellite broadcasting to offer a selection of high-definition programming from the BBC, ITV plc, Channel 4 and NHK.
A joint venture from the BBC and ITV, Freesat is in many ways similar to the Freeview service we currently receive.
Freesat is a non subscription service, meaning no contracts and monthly payments. The system comprises of a small Satellite Dish (exactly the same in appearance to a Sky Mini-Dish) and a receiver (box).
The benefits of Freesat over Freeview are that Freesat currently has more channels (150 rather than 45) and as the signal comes from a satellite, they don't suffer from bad signal areas. The three types of boxes available are:-
Standard Freesat (around 150 tv and 150 radio channels)
Freesat HD (has the free to air High Definition channels also)
Freesat+HD (has also a built in Hard Disk Drive to record programmes directly on to the box, no need for tapes or disks).
