    FreeSat

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7384928.stm

    Anyone interested in that?
    It's good idea, Might get it. I do have NTL. but don't fancy paying for HD service.
    But be nice to get champions league football in HD next season.

    Sky/NTL etc will have to make their HD service free now as people just wont pay an extra 10 p/m for sky HD when they can get freesat for free Sky+ was the same I remember having to pay an extra 5 p/m for that when it first came out now its free.

    I am thinking of buying one just to check out the HD as my HD TV remains unused to its full potential as I wont pay the extra 10 p/m for sky HD. On the whole I thinks its a good idea

    Sounds good to me! I dont have HD, but have seen it, it looks great, especially the football. (though I did hear that the HD currys etc show you is from a hard drive and to match that quality at home is ni on impossible?)

    hasnt this been around for donkeys years already? as long as you have the dish you can get freeview channels through any old box off ebay.

    i use an old amstrad box and sky digital dish and get all the freeview channels.

    is this any different?

    Yes with this you can get a HD service and channels not on freeview IIRC, its ment to be better than freeview and as not everyone could get freeview virtually everyone can recieve it. Plus its cheaper than getting a dish and box from sky and its legit

    Yea, It's basically same as freeview. except far better quality + HD services.

    So in a way it is first to offer free HD service to people.
