    Oops……you are missing quite a few channels, travel Channel on 150 is missing so are some others. HD channels need to be updated.

  • barry clinton

  • stephen smith

    Can you get true drama on freesat?

  • dave farrell

    @Barry Clinton, you’re an idiot

  • when will phil mack country show be on free sat

  • Peter Hubbard

    We have a communal dish in our flats supplied by Sky, is it possible to use this for Freesat? I have no idea about what to do. I don’t want to spend a fortune on Sky and Freesat offers all of the channels I want. There is no cable installed between the dish and my flat. Thanks.

    • Brian

      Yes you can use the Sky dish for freesat.
      You can either buy a Freesat TV or a Freesat receiver.
      A second hand Freesat receiver can be bought for £50 on ebay, plugged straight into the sat cables coming out the wall and straight into the TV. Once you’re set up there is no additional costs or subscriptions.
