published on UK Free TV

We are independent and do not wish to be confused with http://www.freesatfromsky.com/ - for Brian Butterworth's CV, click here.

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.

The BBC and ITV are planning an alternative Freesat service. As soon as they announce anything, I'll be happy to publish it.

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!

There is lots of information for Freesat people, for example.

These pages provide links to find local installers and (not-just-Sky) satellite shops:

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.

Peter: They're a complete con, probably aimed at the American markets were apparently many people don't realise that some of the channels available on cable are also broadcast free to air from terrestrial transmitters. Unfortunately some of the people selling them keep running ads on advertising networks such as the one Briantist uses to insert ads on pages of this site, in order to generate revenue to pay the server costs etc.
