With Freesat expected to announce the G2 specification and range of receivers in September, I thought it would be a good opportunity to ask what functionality would be most important to you in deciding to buy.
The functionality I’ve included based on information I’ve received so far are:
All 4 of the major UK broadcasters, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4OD and 5 Demand.
Access to subscription channels (sports, movies, entertainment) via a pay-as-you-go type scheme.
Interactive (games, youtube…)
Web inferfaces such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and games.
Subscription service to download/rent films.
7-day EPG rollback
Missed a programme, simply go back 7-days through the EPG and click to watch (linked with on-demand).
SCR LNB function
Designed to allow twin tuner access through a single cable, providing your LNB has the SCR facility.
Steerable dish commands from your G2 receiver to access channels from other satellites.
Simply vote below (use the left hand column if the one below doesn’t work for you):
(if you receive a “Please choose a valid poll answer” message, just vote using the left hand column – I am working on it!)
