Freesat & Freetime

"Brilliant TV for Everyone"

Free-to-view digital satellite television services to receive a wide range of programmes from the BBC, ITV & the other popular TV channels...

No contract, no subscription, just a one-off payment for the equipment...

Currently with over 80 TV and radio channels freesat & freetime's channel line-up will grow each month, with up to 200 channels on air by the end of the year...

What is FreeTime?

Free Time from Freesat is the next generation of subscription-free satellite TV. As well as letting you record programmes in SD and HD, series link and access catch-up TV services on-demand, Free Time from Freesat also lets you pick up on programmes you’ve missed.
The box lets you watch all the usual channels available on the Freesat satellite service (as long as you have a dish), and adds a new EPG that allows you to go back in time to catch up on programmes that have already been broadcast. You need to connect your freesat+ box to broadband to enjoy On Demand TV.

You can also get subscription-free High Definition Television (HDTV) from the BBC-HD and ITV-HD...

All you need is a HD Ready TV connected to a freesat or freetime HD digital box / recorder or a TV with freesat HD already built-in...

HDTV means brilliant quality viewing with up to five times more picture detail resulting in deeper, richer more life-like colours not to mention the amazing sound it provides... (More Details...)


BBC HD brings all the excitement of HD to some of your favourite programmes - from Wimbledon to Strictly Come Dancing, The Chelsea Flower Show to Torchwood and Planet Earth to Glastonbury. (BBC HD details...)


ITV HD is a free-to-air high-definition television channel, simulcasting with the main ITV1. (ITV HD details...)

Freesat Receiver Equipment
Freesat can have four different types of receiver - choose from:
  • a standard definition set-top box
  • a HD set-top box
  • a HD integrated digital TV with Freesat Tuner built-in (IDTV)
  • a HD set-top box / unit with PVR (Personal Video Recorder) and Freesat+ built in
To get the "free time" service, you need to connect your freesat+ box to broadband to enjoy On Demand TV.
We can supply and install everything you need for the best available reception of channels in your area.

Freesat has its own seven-day on-screen Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and a Channel Guide so that viewers can easily find the programmes they want.
Freetime equipment has an EPG that allows you to go back in time to catch up on programmes that you have missed...
