Since freesat launched back in june 2008, with its free HD content its become quite a hit with people.
All along their new TVs with the HD ready logo as been waiting expectantly in the corner of the living room,their owners not impressed by sky asking for another tenner a month, for the privelage of recieving their HD service.
Bang, then the BBC and ITV came up with free HD and its the must have service,so much so that there is currently a shortage of freesat boxes which includes the nice new humax PVR,much to the annoyance of sky.
Initially Freesat were not to keen on pointing out that freesat HD could be recieved through an existing sky dish, in otherwords ditch sky and plug in a freesat unit instead, judging by the number of customers I have had doing the dump sky bit Mr murdoch is going to be quite upset.
If you don't like more boxes lurking under neath your telly, panasonic are the first to bring out televisions with freesat HD built in,very nice indeed, I would'nt mind one myself.
