Freesat is an initiative that aims to ensure that the whole of the UK can receive digital TV. It's an alliance between the two major broadcasting companies in the UK, the BBC and ITV. Together, they have launched a not for profit company that offers a over 140 channels of TV and Radio as well as HD content via satellite.
Freesat is essentially the satellite equivalent of Freeview and therefore requires the installation of Freesat satellite dish. Instead of using your aerial to receive the signal, you use a satellite to connect to this separate network of TV and Radio content. With exclusive HD content already available on Freesat, it's a great alternative if you're in a rural area, already have a satellite dish or simply want to be one of the early few who can watch HD television.
Compared to Freeview through your aerial, the great thing about Freesat is that there is also a great deal more channels (e.g. ITV 1 London available throughout Scotland). With Freeview, early set top boxes and transmitters don't support the new HD format meaning to enjoy it, chances are you're going to have to upgrade YET again. You don't have this problem with Freesat. www.freesat.co.uk

One of the many enquiries we get is from customers who are told by Sky’s installers they can’t get reception....Why?
Sky’s direct contractors are usually only interested in the quick easy jobs, so if they have told you can’t have satellite contact us.
