WHAT IS FREETIME?

Freetime - the smart TV Guide from Freesat, gives you everything you need to take control of your TV Viewing. 

You'll never be stuck for what to watch with daily programme recommendations in Showcase.

Watch when it suits you with the UK's favourite On Demand players and Roll Back the TV Guide to watch shows you've missed from the past seven days on 26 channels.

All Freetime boxes give you access to over 200 TV and Radio channels, with 11 in picture perfect High Definition.

Plus, if you get a Freesat+HD box with Freetime, you can pause & rewind live TV and record a whole series at the touch of a button.

And now, pair your box with the Freesat App - to set recordings and reminders from your smartphone or tablet.

ACCESSIBILITY

Freesat has a range of accessibility functions to ensure everyone can enjoy great TV, subscription-free. Audio description and subtitles are available for selected programmes on Freesat, where a broadcaster makes them available. All Freesat products allow access to Audio Description and subtitles. 


Our Freesat+ HD with Freetime, Freesat HD with Freetime, Freesat+ HD and Freesat HD boxes have broadband connections so you can connect them to your existing home broadband service. This allows you to access On Demand content such as BBC iPlayer and, if you have a Freetime product, Roll Back through the last seven days of TV across 26 channels. There is also a range of interactive services and digital text services available on Freesat.

INSTALLATION

Setting up your new Freesat box or TV is easy. Simply plug it into your satellite dish and you’re ready to go. However, if you would like help or need to have a satellite dish installed there are two ways to arrange installation.

Directly with your local retailer when you buy your Freesat digital box or Freesat TV.

Or by calling us on 0345 293 8230. We only work with approved installers who meet industry standards, so we'll be putting you in safe hands.

Standard Freesat installation starts from £60. A Freesat+ HD installation can cost around £30 extra because of the need for two cables from your satellite dish to allow you to watch one channel while recording another. If you would like help setting up Freesat in more than one room there will be a charge of approximately £35 per room, depending on the layout of your property.

GET FREESAT IN ANOTHER ROOM

We have a range of products to suit every room in your home, so you can enjoy brilliant TV wherever you are. So you can have one of our super-smart Freetime boxes in your main room and a discreet, super-simple Freesat HD box in a bedroom. Alternatively if you're currently a Sky TV customer you can run Freesat boxes in other rooms off the same dish and enjoy satellite TV in another room, without another subscription.

Freesat HD boxes are available from £49.95, so the savings can soon add up. So what are you waiting for? Enjoy great entertainment throughout your home, subscription free. 

SWITCHING FROM SKY

If you're a Sky customer, switching to Freesat is easy. Freesat uses the same dish and satellites as Sky, so if you’ve already got a dish all you need to do is connect a Freesat box or TV by following these simple steps.

  1. Plug your Freesat box or TV in to your satellite dish, (remember you'll need two feeds/cables to your box in order to watch one channel while recording another).
  2. Connect to broadband to access Catch Up services, along with the Roll Back TV guide and Showcase on Freetime - see your connection options here.
  3. Sit back and enjoy subscription free satellite TV 

Freesat HD boxes start from just £49.95

Freesat HD with Freetime is available from £96

Freesat+ HD boxes start at £139

Freesat+ HD with Freetime boxes are available from £199

USING YOUR CURRENT DISH

If you already have a satellite dish, switching to Freesat is easy. Freesat uses the same dish and satellites as Sky, so if you've already got a dish all you need to do is connect a Freesat box or TV and away you go.

You'll receive over 200 TV & radio channels, including 11 in HD, all subscription free and if you choose a Freesat+ HD box, you'll be able to Pause, Record & Rewind live TV and watch TV on Demand with no monthly bills. Remember that your dish will need two feeds/cables to your box in order to watch one channel while recording another - if it doesn't, you can arrange for an installer to visit when you buy your Freesat box.

Freesat HD digital boxes start from £49.95 and Freesat+ HD with Freetime from around £199.

If you have a warranty agreement for your Sky dish (typically 12 months), then check the terms before you install any other equipment. Also remember that if you have any remaining contractual obligations with Sky, you'll still be bound to fulfil them.
