Alan Claridge: You would need a USB DVB-S2 satellite tuner such as the one at the link below, which needs to be connected to a satellite dish pointing at the 28E orbital position (you can reuse the existing dish and cabling if your property has previously had Sky). You won't receive Freesat as such, but you'll be able to receive all the free to air (FTA) channels which are available on Freesat.
