For the last six years, I have answered many thousands of personal emails that you have sent to UK Free TV.

Sadly, I am unable to offer this personal service at the moment.

Until I can restore this service, please can you leave any questions you have on an appropriate page, where they will be answered as soon as possible, or below, if you can't figure out where to ask.

I look forward to your questions!

Can I use a Sky+HD box as a freesat tuner? If I can what should I do to get it started?
Would it work with only one aerial lead?

alan newman: You will need to use a Freeview box or a Freeview TV set.

R McINTOSH: The service provided by the "new" channels is not compatible with the original specification for the "connected TV" section of the Freeview HD specification.

It is somewhat ungenerous of the company to tell you that your box is wrong, they could have chosen to make their service work with it, but have declined to do so.

Having said that, my Freeview HD box it flashes up the white screen that says (when I record and pause it):

"Sports Tonight is only avaliable on compatible Freeview HD devices. Please connect your TV device to the internet. To view on a PC or mobile device go to

For more information go to"

And then the screen goes black, but I can use the iPlayer and other internet access on the box.
