The BBC and ITV launched Freesat today. It's a non-subscription satellite TV service offering 80-200 channels for the cost of the receiver. Sounds like a bargain. Unfortunately, there's no "Sky+" PVR version yet, so that would present something of a barrier to switching. Our household would be lost without the series link and the time-shifting capabilities of Sky+. But there is one on the way.

Freesat does have one advantage over the Sky platform: it has a internet connection built in which would mean iPlayer functionality too.

I saw that it is increasing the coverage of digital tv quite well. To those people who couldn't get it before in the arse-end of Wales and suchlike.
