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 2010, 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 service will remain free, forever.
Fantastic Freesat Picture Quality In HD!
One of the most appealing features of the new Freesat system, is not just the fantastic
television channel line up in place and to come during 2010, 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
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, Hertford TV can provide on the same, if not the
next day of your telephone call.
Pause, Rewind & Record Your Favourite TV Shows With Freesat+!
Freesat+ has finally arrived! The new Freesat+ digital satellite television receiver
incorporates all the glorious and exciting features such as HD programming, interactive
TV guides and digital services, but now with the fantastic ability to pause, rewind
and fast forward live TV! Provided with an integrated hard drive, the Freesat+ receiver
will also allow you to record your favourite television shows, and providing you
have a second satellite cable feed from your mini satellite dish, you will also be
able to record one television channel all whilst watching another! Now, there will
be no more fighting over the TV remote control, and you will never miss your favourite
digital television shows again! Freesat+ now reduces the need for recordable tapes
or DVD discs, as all your favourite programmes are stored directly onto the built
in Freesat harddrive! Freesat+ is the only way to record and watch brilliant freesat
high definition viewing, and with 320GB of hard drive space available, you can record
upto 80 hours of free HD programming!
BBC iPlayer Providing On Demand TV With Freesat!
Freesat will later on during 2010 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 Freesat HD or HDR receiver 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 Freesat
satellite receiver connected direct to your internet/broadband connection for this
service to work. You will not require a 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 Freesat receiver. However, it is expected that those with a 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!
