My TV has a Freeview sticker on the front. If I install a freesat dish will I also need a freesat set top box or can I plug the cable from the dish direct into the TV?

marez: Unless the TV works with Freesat, then you will need a Freesat set-top box.

If you post the make and model number of your set, we can have a look at the specifications and tell you whether it will work with Freesat. Most don't and are only designed to receive terrestrial signals without need for a separate box.

marez: If your tv set says freesat you will need a dish outside.. If it says freeview, just a decent aerial...

Hi I have a Samsung EU40D5500 LED Smart TV, the info says it will receive Freesat HD, I presume I need to get a Freesat HD Box? If I want to watch Eurosport is there a freesat HD top up box that you can recommend.
Thanks Steve

Steve Beane: I'm guessing you mean the . - UA40D5500RR - LED TV - television | SAMSUNG ?

If so, it doesn't have Freesat built in, so yes, you will need a Freesat HD or Freesat+HD box to watch Freesat.

However, to watch Eurosport UK on satellite in the UK you will have to subscribe to Sky HD.

You can still get Eurosport on Analogue via the old astra satellite. I have an amstrad receiver which is 20 years old and it still works fine!

I have an analogue satellite dish and receive International Eurosport free and have done for many years. All the adverts are in German but the sports (motorsports) I mainly watch always have the commentary in English. I have heard that Int Eurosport is going digital on 30 April 2012. Help! What can I do to still receive it free.
