Freesat is a subscription-free digital TV service which is broadcast using satellite technology. It offers free-to-air channels to UK homes and is a joint venture between BBC and ITV. You need a Freesat set-top box or Freesat integrated TV and a dish, but there are no bills or contracts and viewers can watch in high definition if they've got a HD TV.

The only cost with Freesat is the equipment so after making that initial purchase you'll never have to pay anything again. You'll can buy either a Freesat set-top box or a Freesat integrated HD TV, which means it comes built-in and ready for you to use straight away.

You need a satellite dish to receive the digital broadcast with Freesat, and you can use your old Sky dish or one that was already there when you moved in. Otherwise, you can buy one when you order Freesat online or in the high-street.

Only those Freesat set-top boxes with Freesat+ allow you to pause, rewind and record TV, but features like Netflix and TV Player Plus can be added onto any Freesat package for a variety of on-demand entertainment.
