Accessibility

Freesat aims to achieve the highest possible levels of satisfaction for all aspects of its online and TV viewing experience. As part of these efforts, we've created experience that everyone can enjoy.

TV Viewing

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 smart boxes have broadband connections so you can connect them to your existing home broadband service. This allows you to access On Demand content from services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Netflix and YouTube.  An internet connection also allows you access content from the last seven days of TV across selected channels.

 

Website

We've designed and developed our website to meet with the latest website guidelines of accessibility - WCAG 2.1 Level AA - in terms of legibility and clarity of imagery and information.

It is likely that these standards will change over time and we will endeavour to evolve our experiences with them.
