Factually this box will NOT give you Freesat- merely the free-to-air channels available on the Sky lists- these are similar though not identical to those of Freesat and will be missing the epg list available on true Freesat. Of course it cannot give you any HD broadcasts either.
"All you need to gain access to the free channels available on the digital satellite platform is a Freesat from Sky viewing card, which costs just £20. If you’d like to access the interactive services available, you’ll also need a working phone line. To purchase a viewing card please phone Sky on 08448 244 400."


£20 card gives equivalent (but not identical) channel selection to Freeview.
The above is correct all you would need is a dish working and a freesat card, this box does not come with any viewing cards.
I think mikezoe65s point was that in the OP is states - "Perfect for Freesat" - when in fact as the base box it can only recieve free-to-air channels - which does not even include any of the ITVs or Channel 4. You could perhaps rephrase the OP as it could be misleading to inexperienced users.
