Compare Freesat and Freeview
While we’re both free TV services, the main difference between Freesat and Freeview is the way in which the service is delivered. Where Freeview’s signal is delivered via an aerial, our broadcast arrives via satellite. This gives us brilliant reception across the whole of the UK, and capacity for more channels than Freeview.
We have over 180 TV and Radio channels, including many of the Freeview favourites and HD channels. We also have brilliant catch up services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, and My5.
