The site contains full information about both the Sky and non-Sky FTA satellite receivers, but we have found that the majority of people who are using free-to-air satellite have ex-contract Sky receivers. The problems with Solus cards have dealt with on the site in the past.
Sky don't really like publicizing their free-to-air satellite service, and did not even have a website for the service until recently. (For example, they still have not updated the Sky News logo on their site). UK Free receives no payment from Sky for their advertisement, it's just there to help those people who can't get Freeview!
As soon as high-street multiples (Argos, Dixons etc) start stocking DIY Freesat equipment, I hope to extend the list on the "current set-top boxes".
When the site launched back in July 2002, we decided that specialist systems (multi-dish or motorised) were covered much better elsewhere in specialist magazines. Also, list of channels and frequencies is covered by the excellent lyngsat.com.
The site was born out of experience gained from ONdigital's technical support failure, and so the site has a large Freeview section.
We always welcome contributions and are always interested in extending the depth of information.
I am getting in touch from Criteo. I have been trying to get in touch for a while now about buying display ad inventory on the site -we have discussed previously and i am keen to talk about this again!
Love the web site. It's really great and most useful. However, I now wish to unsubscribe from email updates, but they just keeping coming no matter how many times I click on the Cancel Notification option on web page: http://www.ukfree.tv/yn.p…UdmX
Wondered what I might be doing wrong? Thanks. (KT130DT)
I'm trying to deregister from your site, but even though I fill in your form it's not effective and I keep on getting e-mail updates. Not sure what's happening here, but could you take me off your e-mail distribution list please?
Hi, I have a Humax HDR-FOX T2 connected by HDMI to a Sony KDL-32D300 TV. My problem is when watching/recording via the Humax box programmes on Channel 5, 5* sometimes ITV, ITV4 the picture is rubbish, however via the tv they are very good. I live in Lincolnshire and use the Belmont mast.
Bob: Check your signal strength on both the Humax and the Sony. My Sony PVR is pretty sensitive, but very robust about high signal strength - its will be fine up to 94%. Humax is also pretty sensitive, but its less robust and it will start to complain a bit sooner.
Its hardly surprising then that the Humax has a problem with too much signal, when the Sony seems fine. My parent-in-law live in North Norfolk, and are having the same problem with their Panasonic TV and PVR from Belmont. The TV complains a little sometimes, but the PVR does it much more.

BTW - the postcode you've given reckons your in Northumberland!
