What is Freesat?

 

What is freesat ?
Freesat is the satellite alternative to Freeview and broadcasts around 150 channels compared to the 50 on Freeview. Freesat requires a dish pointing towards the Astra 2 satellite, the same satellite that broadcasts Sky and actually uses the same dish and free to air channels that are shown on Sky. A Freesat receiver is also required. 

Freesat allows you to receive free to air programmes via satellite. A minidish or
sqish dish is installed and aimed at the Astra 2 satellite at 28 degrees east of South. The dish requires a clear line of sight to the satellite and in rare cases trees or buildings may block the signal. If in doubt get an engineer to survey the site.

Freesat Receiver options
There are several receiver options: a standard definition receiver a High definition receiver and a High definition receiver with a hard drive built and twin tuner to enable recording. Several manufacturers make freesat receivers with Humax as the main supplier of boxes. Some manufacturers make TVs and Blu Ray players with integrated Freesat tuners including Panasonic & Samsung.

EPG (Program Guide)
Freesat have their own program guide that show channel listings for the next 7 days. Listings can be selected by genre and more information about a program can be found when pressing the info button on the remote control.

 

Installation Options
A dish is required to receive Freesat with either a single LNB for the standard receiver or a Quad for the recording PVR receiver .Any Sky dish is compatible with freesat. In areas where a dish is not allowed then a Sqish Dish is a discreet alternative to a standard Sky dish.

Multiroom
It is possible to run multiple receivers off the same dish with a quad (4 way) or octo (8 way) LNB. If more feeds are required then you can use satellite multiswitch with up to 32 outputs. It is also possible to distribute the Freesat signal from one receiver to other TVs but an
RF modulator will probably required as no Freesat receivers currently have a modulator built in. 

Our engineers install Freesat systems in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Crowborough, Sevenoaks, Heathfield and in the Medway and Maidstone areas. Prices vary depending on requirements and we do deals on Freesat packages with a receiver dish and standard fitting. We also have installation partners across the UK and can arrange supply and fitting of all Freesat systems.

We always discuss and agree all costs before we install and offer FREE local surveys. We also give a 2 year warranty on all Freesat systems we install.
