I found it very hard to get a clear statement from Currys as to which TVs actually support Freesat built in, most importantly the Freesat EPG. Even where the product description included the term there was not any reference to the service in the menus.

On the LG site at no point does it have any reference to the Freesat service nor do any of the menus in the handbook. Information on satellite reception is limited.

After some investigation not helped by Currys not having any TV satellite connections in store it would appear that LG, Samsung and Sony have "free-to-air" reception as opposed to Freesat, only Panasonic. This was supported by the Hughes electrical representative so I eventually bought a 49FX750B from there.

If retailers are going to get customers they need to train staff and let that staff actually learn about the products they sell including fully setting them up to see how they operate.
