There is a new kid on the block in the world of television signals that you can now receive here in the UK.
Freesat brought to you by the BBC and ITV provides all the services on freeview but with a lot more besides,a lot of extra channels that make it a viable alternative to freeview,more so if you can't receive freeview due to hills etc.
BBC HD and ITV HD The number one feature is the free High definition services.Sky HD and cable HD pails alongside the BBC's output which is technically far superior and a revelation in viewing pleasure.
The 3D depth of the BBC HD picture is the most quoted feature after I have installed it, people sometimes just sitting back in their chair marveling.
All BBC HD is full 1080 with all programmes filmed in HD not up scaled,and the equal of HD from a Blue ray player.
Freesat can be received via an existing sky dish by simply fitting quad LNB unit to the dish,allowing you to keep your sky receiver piped with signals.
Freesat can be used in any no of rooms,so if you live in a location where instance your Terrestrial reception is through trees wreaking havoc with your freeview reception a freesat installation is the answer.Or you could live in an area with very poor terrestrial reception such as a mountainous region.
So if you have an HD ready TV without an HD feed to it you are missing out on something special.
The sound can also be linked to a 5.1 sound system for even more viewing pleasure.
Who makes the best freesat units,without doubt Humax free sat boxes rule the roost.
Our prices for Freesat for a single definition system start from £160,including installation.
And we fit only Quad LNB's to allow for future expansion.
If you have a sky unit this can also be used to receive but the EPGS are incorrect,and if you want to record on a Sky+ unit you have to cough up £10 per month to sky for the privilege,since the unit is locked into sky functions,but apart from these drawbacks it is a good way to get into the world of freesat.

Another very nice feature of freesat is that you can watch all the BBC regional programming.
So if your from Yorkshire living in wales, you can catch up on whats going on in your corner of the world, or sample the news and programming from other corners of the UK.
If you have a sky dish after dumping one of their contracts,or simply inherited one when you moved into another house,we can survey it for you to see if its condition is up to scratch, and it still as line of sight to the satellite ie trees haven't grown,or buildings sprouted up to block the view,either of these will totally block the signal.
Or if you are thinking of going for a,freesat installation, you need to be certain you can get the Astra 2 satellite before spending the money on the equipment.
Although relatively inexpensive, it is a good idea to verify the signal before cashing in your Fisher investments UK account to purchase an installation.
if you don't have a convenient sky dish nearby to check this, we can survey your site.It can sometimes look like your view is blocked,which is very deceptive.
Only a survey with the right equipment can give you a yes or no.
If you already have a freesat equipped TV,or are thinking of buying a freesat box,our price for fitting
Freesat to one room £84.99
Two rooms £124.99

British television abroad
Freesat gives anybody now living abroad the opportunity to watch British television.
In theory freesat can be received in any area from where you can see the satellite,even if it is just peeping above your horizon.
The satellite's power does diminish the further you get away from its ideal signal area,the further away you are the bigger the dish you need.
We provide all the equipment you need to install the system yourself,if you are competent with DIY then you are good to go,we provide a full support service if you get stuck.
This can be attached to dwelling either temporarily or permanently,at the side of your motor home/caravan assembly.
Above all the dish setup needs to be easy and quick otherwise you wont use it.
