Freesat Set Top Boxes

Freesat Set Top Boxes

Freesat was launched on 6th May 2008.

Freesat offers free to air, subscription free UK TV via satellite. It was was designed for those areas of the UK that are unable to receive the UK terrestrial digital service, Freeview.

For a one-off payment you can receive over 150 TV and Radio channels.

And with a Freesat HD set top box, you can receive 11 high definition (HD) channels.

There are three types of Freesat Set Top Boxes:

  • The basic standard definition Freesat Set Top Box,
  • a high definition Freesat HD Set Top Box,
  • and the high definition with hard drive Freesat+HD Set Top Box.

When we install a Freesat satellite system, we use official Freesat Set Top Boxes. Some satellite installation companies along the Costa Blanca and Valencia area may offer you an Iberosat, Ferguson Ariva or GI Galaxy Innovations satellite receiver, claiming it is a Freesat Set Top Box. These satellite receivers are NOT Freesat Set Top Boxes. Official Freesat Set Top Boxes have the Freesat logo on the receiver, remote control and the packaging.

 

Standard Definition Freesat Set Top Boxes

Standard Definition Freesat Set Top Boxes have been phased out over recent years, with High Definition Freesat Set Top Boxes taking precedence.

Non Freesat Mode

The number of channels currently available on the Freesat EPG (electronic programme guide) does not included ALL of the free UK TV channels that are available.

However that does not mean that they are not available on a Freesat receiver.

But it is possible to view this and all the other free to air (FTA) channels by accessing the manual tune or Non Freesat Mode feature on your Freesat set top box.

Many people have ask me if it possible to copy files and programmes from a Freesat Humax HD+ receiver (the receiver with a built in hard disk drive) and store them on an external hard disk drive, for storage or playing on a computer.

Well it is possible, to an extent.
