Is Freesat Really FREE?

In a word yes, Freesat is a UK based Satellite TV broadcast platform That all the Channels are Free-To-Air, Not encrypted or scrambled in any way.

So if you have a TV or Set Top Box that has a Satellite input you can pick up a range of Channels for Free. (UK TV Licensing Rules may apply*) 

The Freesat platform broadcasts on the same group of satellites as SKY TV in the UK (Astra2 @ 28Deg), so replacing your old sky TV box is normally just a matter of swapping out the set top boxes.

But The new Freesat Boxes offer more than ever before, with SMART APPs Like ITV-X, BBC iPlayer & the option to sign up to premium paid for apps like Netflix, this one little box can do it all.
