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

If you already have a working satellite dish, it’s easy to connect your new Freesat box or TV. Simply plug it in to your dish using your existing cables and follow the on screen instructions.

If you need to have a satellite dish installed you can arrange this with your local retailer when you buy your Freesat box or TV or by calling us on 0345 293 8230. We’ll then put you in touch with your local Freesat-approved installer.

A standard dish installation with two feeds to your box, (which allows you to record one channel while watching another), is normally £94.99, which includes the cost of the dish itself. Installing a dish with a single satellite feed (for basic Freesat boxes that don't record) is usually £74.99.

If you already have a dish and simply wish to install cables to another room, this is normally £64.99. Because installations are provided by third parties, prices can vary depending on the layout of your property and location of your TV.

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 £47, 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 £44

Freesat HD with Freetime is available from £79.95

Freesat+ HD boxes start at £99

Freesat+ HD with Freetime boxes are available from £189.95

USING YOUR CURRENT DISH

If you already have a satellite dish, (for example one that has been previously used to receive Sky TV), switching to Freesat is easy. Freesat uses the same dish and satellites as Sky, so in most cases you can simply plug your Freesat digital box or TV in using your existing cabling and enjoy subscription free satellite TV.

If you need a new satellite dish or need extra cables (for another room or to allow you to watch one programme while recoring another), then your retailer should be able to arrange this when you buy your Freesat box, or give us a call on 0345 293 8230 and we'll be happy to help.
