Freeview and freesat

Found 21st Oct 2013
Ive recently cancelled Sky Tv as it is too expensive. Apart from the free to view channels the only other side we watched was MTV (Geordie Shore ;-)). Does anyone know what channels you get with free-view and free-sat? I think we may be better off buying a box of our own instead of paying monthly.

Thanks in advance xxx

Yes I stand corrected.Freesat has more channels.
I wanted to record programs too x
Thanks philmitchell xxxx
I would suggest you ask sky to leave the free sat channels when cancelling so you get all the HD channels as there are more than on freeview. Also it means that if you do get your own recorder you can watch a 3rd channel while recording 2 others.
How do I use a recorder with a sky box? How would it record sky too? It sounds great if it works x
Freesat has a few less than Freeview.Dave etc. is only on Freeview.

Just buy a Freesat or Freeviw Receiver that has recording facilities, forget the Sky Receiver if you need to record anything.
Thanks guys x
