It's basically like Freeview but via satellite. It's a collaboration between the likes of the BBC, ITV and CH4.

You pay a one off fee for the equipment and then watch for free.
There's like 80 channels including HD ones also for free!

It's just like having a sky box without the subscription but you do get free HD :D Boxes with built a in HDD for recording will be coming soon.

That's about it really :lol:

It sounds good. Anybody tried it? That would save me over £50 a month on Sky.

I'm told "Pull your card out to give you a rough idea of what you'll get."

Infact just look at their website :D

Oooh, lots of channel hopping opportunities there then!

Bliddy hell! Movies for men and movies for men 2? Where's the movies for women? :roll:

Bid up, Price drop and QVC - lots of shopping! Only thing wrong though, E4 is presently encrypted, do we know why and if there are plans for it not to be? I'd miss Big Brother without that! :cry:

We've shot it then,My son loves jetix,boomerang,nick junior,challenge,virgin 1.My husband is into his sports too ESPN,sky sports 1,2 and 3,eurosport.There are a lot of channels that you don't get but i suppose that's the difference between a one off fee and £50 a month.It's not bad as a taster though.
