    thanks admin


  4. lib Says:

    sorry admin me again can i use my old sky dish to pick up freesat hd (bbc/itv).


  5. admin Says:

    lib – Yes, if your satellite setup presently works with a Sky digibox, it will also work with a freesat receiver. You are effectively receiving the same BBC/ITV channels etc.

    The Goodmans HD box mentions 1080i not 1080p, I thought it was gonig to be a full HD service.


  9. admin Says:

    goosey7 – Nope, not yet, all broadcasts in 1080i. Suspect this might be the case for a good few years. There isn’t enough difference to warrant it on these channels yet.

    I note the expected cost for installation of a Freesat box is going to be £80. Who is going to install the boxes? Is Freesat building up a network of installers?


  11. admin Says:

    Tommy – We were led to beleive by John Lewis that freesat installations will be carried out by Sky’s network of installers in the first instance, presumably as freesat have not got their own agreements in place. This is what the buyers from John Lewis were told on their training day!


  12. Tommy Says:

    I used to work for a fairly large company that SKY use for installations, and rumour has it that this company were offered the Freesat installation contract. However, SKY persuaded them not to take it, and instead gave them other contracts!

    Hi, i currently use sky digital + and multi room, can i use the spare input on my quad lnb for the freesat hd box or do i need a second dish installed.



  14. Bernie Abraham Says:

    Am on Sky digital and an LCD TV in our living room.
    Can we also have Freesat running from the Sky dish to another LCD TV in our back room.
