The new Freesat system has been developed to provide greater network coverage for the UK, with approximately 98% of all UK households being able to receive the digital satellite signal, and will provide digital television viewing for those who are unable to receive the current Freeview signal. Furthermore, Freesat will provide super fast digital text and enhanced interactivity, with access to the latest local, national and world news, and even live sports results and the local weather!
To help you make the most of what you want to watch on your TV, the new Freesat system will have a built in TV programming guide, providing you with up to date TV listings seven days in advance of when your favourite digital television shows are on. There will also be digital subtitles and audio description available.
No Monthly Subscription!
The freesat system, as the name suggests, is free satellite TV viewing for anyone who wishes to watch digital TV. With approximately 140 channels including TV & Radio already available, and an estimated increase to around 200 free digital channels during 2009, Freesat could be the new digital vision for the future, and provide a superb alternative to Freeview TV or Sky Freesat.
As opposed to the Sky Freesat system, you will not require a card to unlock the free channels, and the BBC has announced the Freesat system will remain free, forever.
Fantastic Freesat Picture Quality In HD!
One of the most appealing features of the new BBC & ITV Freesat system, is not just the fantastic television channel line up in place and to come during 2009, neither is it the free digital television channels with no subscription or monthly payments, but it is the offering of High-Definition technology on its range of channels, direct to your television, ALL COMPLETELY FREE.
High Definition provides up to 5 times greater digital picture quality than standard definition, with more vibrant colours and much finer detail. You will also benefit from improved audio, with some programmes being available in Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
Providing you have a HD compatible television, and a HD Freesat receiver, you will benefit from the Freesat channel line up in glorious High Definition, providing greater, sharper and much more detailed pictures and vibrant colours.
No Monthly Charges, No Minimum Contract, One Payment!
We can supply and install a suitable Freesat TV system to suit your television viewing requirements, whether you wish to receive standard definition viewing, or would like to receive the new digital HD channel line up, all free.
Remember, Freesat has no monthly charges, subscription or minimum contract. You only pay for the equipment and installation, both of which, Aerialforce can provide on the same, if not the next day of your telephone call.

BBC iPlayer Providing On Demand TV With Freesat!
BBC Freesat will later on during 2009 be utilising the technology by the now infamous BBC iPlayer, providing all home viewers, access to on demand television content 24/7, and the ability to watch TV shows already broadcasted within the past seven days!
Using BBC iPlayer, your BBC Freesat will receive a data stream from the BBC iPlayer service, and display the television show direct to your television, without the need for any subscription, or contract! All you require is a BBC Freesat satellite receiver connected direct to your internet/broadband connection for this service to work.
You will not require a BBC Freesat+ PVR to be able to use the BBC iPlayer service either, as the information and television programme is ‘streamed’ direct to your receiver, as if you were watching a live broadcast, so no data will be stored on your BBC Freesat receiver. However, it is espected that those with a BBC Freesat+ PVR, content will be able to be stored on your hard drive for upto 30 days allowing you to download any pre-televised content for viewing later!
