Freesat is a similar service to Freeview as there is no contract, no monthly bill and it provides around 85 digital channels including the standard terrestrial stations, E4, More4, Film4, BBC News, Bloomberg, CNBC and CNN.
Freesat launched in 2007 and works in a similar way to Freeview but the signal is received using a satellite dish rather than a conventional TV aerial. There are over 200 TV and radio channels including an increasing number of HD stations available on Freesat which is Britains only totally subscription free satellite service. To watch Freesat you will need either a Freesat box or a TV with an inbuilt Freesat tuner. There’s a great choice of boxes on the market which offer a range of features;
o Freesat HD: Over 200 channels including HD content
o Freesat+HD: Over 200 channels and an inbuilt hard drive recorder to pause and rewind live TV
o Freesat+HD Freetime: Over 200 channels, hard drive recorder plus Smart functionality including Catchup and On Demand services
Freesat can be an excellent alternative to Freeview especially in areas where reception via a conventional TV aerial is a problem. The great range of boxes also make it a very attractive product.
