In order to view HDchannels on Freeview, consumers will need to replace their existing Freeview receiving equipment (either a set top box or a television with a Freeview receiver built in) by purchasing entirely new equipment
Freeview coverage in the UK currently stands at 73%. Even after digital switchover there will still be a proportion of UK households which will not be able to view Freeview and it's HDchannels whilst Freesat reaches 98% of UK homes now
Freesat adds, "With Freesat, subscription free high definition (HD) is already a reality for the UK. We believe our no strings offer of over 130 channels plus great HD programmes from the BBC and ITV, for a one off payment of as little as 120, is leading the way in making HD the standard that viewers will come to expect in the future."
"Due to the way we broadcast our service, via satellite rather than traditional aerial, HD is available now to 98% of UK homes via Freesat. Freesat homes don't have to wait until Digital Switchover reaches their region to get HD for free which for large parts of the country is still over three years off."
And they didn't mention that Freeview HD is limited to 720-line services (2.5 times SD in terms of pixels), whereas Freesat is already 1080-line (5 times SD's pixels).
MikeT: Mike, I am very familiar with the Lasswade area, having been born and lived in the Edinburgh and Midlothian area for most of my life.I am aware that the geography in and around Lasswade has quite radically differing contrasts from the lowest point at the Bridge, which sees I think the river Eak at this lowest point to the higher unobstructed level at Lasswade High School and the former Midfield House. There a fair number of wooded areas locally also. I suspect that depending on your specific location there may be signal issues that would perhaps relate to "Freeview" reception as well. It's difficult for me to give a more specific answer to this one without your exact locus, but I bet it's generally problamatic for installers to achieve a locked on figital signal at the bottom end of Lasswade.
Mike T; You are aware that the Satellite signals are transmitted from a cluster of satellite's around 28 degrees South East e.g. Astra and Eutelsat? High and Low Band's need to be correctly peaked with a Pro meter across that cluster to achieve the best possible signalreception - (your receiver and LNB - the item on the end of the dish arm- switch high and low bands automatically).
can a freeview TV decode and display freesat signals? or do I need another decoder (freesat). I have never seen a freesat TV, but since I can't get a freeview I want to use freesat, but preferably without another box! Separate boxes and cables drive us all mad.
a hollland: Freeview is a terrestrial system and Freesat is a satellite system. There are a few TVs that have Freesat built-in. I believe that they also tend to have Freeview as well, but you could just not use it.
A brief Google brought up these (and other) results:
