Say it with a whisper.......... "Freesat from Sky"

I came across this whilst researching "TV packages" on the www.

http://www.freesatfromsky.com/

Free digital TV, and it looks better than the Freeview service.
(Other opinions greatfully accepted).

Perhaps everyone knows about this ................. but it was new to me.

Interesting to note that this Freesat service is hardly mentioned at all on Sky's main web page.

I wonder if I could "downgrade" my present Sky service to Freesat ?
Has anybody tried ?

If you are out of your 12 month contract you can cancel Sky. Your viewing card will then receive all the channels in the Freesat line up. I wouldn't say it's better than Freeview though. Yes you get more channels on Freesat but an awfull lot are just not woth watching. There are a number of channels on Freeview that you have to pay for on Sky such as E4, Sky Sports News, UK TV History, UK TV Bright Ideas, Sky Travel and FTN. The bulk of the channels on Freesat are 'special interest' and shopping channels.
I mean do you think you will watch any of these Freesat channels?

Been out a long time.. But still not bad. If you know what you are doing and have a spare sat box (none sky with cam access) you can load a dragon cam with the correct firmware and watch the free channels on each box without the use of a card share!

I do not call a one off payment of £150 free. If you already have a box and your card gets cancelled (they do from time to time) then join one of the "pay as you view" schemes (usually porno), they then send you a card free, which receives all free channels, then of course you do not "buy" any programs.
