Found 26th Jan 2011
I am currently with Sky but was thinking of cancelling and trying Freesat as my TV has a Feesat HD tuner. Can i just plug the Sky dish lead into the back og my TV?
Sorry if this is a dumb question
Also anyone got it who can tell me what it is like?
Thanks

Yeah sorry I just edited my post didnt spot the part about your tv having it built in!

Can I install freesat myself? Yes, if you already have a satellite dish and cabling, in most cases you can simply plug your freesat digital box or TV in. If your dish is still under warranty (typically 12 months) we advise you check that using it to receive freesat will not affect your warranty terms before you install any other equipment. And of course, if you have any remaining contractual obligations with your supplier, you'll still be bound to fulfil them. If you need a new satellite dish or need extra cables, for example for freesat+ , you can book it in store when you buy freesat.
