What is Freesat?

Freesat is the right choice for Brits residing in France when you don’t want to be fancy paying for TV every month.
It’s a contract-free kind of telly that uses satellite…
There's no monthly subscription - all you need is a satellite dish and a Freesat HD box on your telly (EUR 199 to 449).
Once you've bought those and paid for installation, that's all you'll ever need to pay to get your favourite UK TV channels.

Freesat is great for getting the basic UK channels, but there's still a lot missing - like premium channels and a comprehensive on-demand library.
If you want fairly basic TV but with a little extra, on the other hand, we'd recommend signing up to telly from Sky.

What channels do you get with Freesat?
You get lots. Over 200 of them, in fact but not as many as you can get from Sky (350+).
All your basics are ready and present, including all the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, and 5 suites, plus lots of music, news, kids' TV,
and some lovely shopping channels. You won't find any premium channels though, so you'll miss out on the likes of Sky 1, Sky Atlantic,
Comedy Central, Dave, National Geographic, Eurosport, Discovery, Nickelodeon, and so on. You'll need to take out a full TV package if you want those.

Here are the channels you get:
Entertainment, factual, lifestyle BBC One, BBC Two, ITV1, Channel 4, 5, BBC Four, BBC Alba, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, ITVBe, S4C, E4, More 4, Four7, 5 USA, 5STAR, My5, CBS Drama, CBS Reality, CBS Action, Horror Channel, BET, Spike, True Entertainment, True Crime, Pick, Challenge, Food Network, Travel Channel, Tru TV, PBS America, Your TV, Dave, Drama, Yesterday, Really, Showcase TV, Blaze, Home, Quest, Quest Red, regional channels.

Shopping QVC, QVC Beauty, QVC Extra, QVC Style, Gems TV, JML,, TJC, Ideal World, Create and Craft, Hochanda, Juwelo UK

13 of those channels are available in HD too, and loads have +1 versions available on the service as well. Plus, on top of TV you'll get
around 40 radio stations through your telly, including BBC Radio, Capital FM, RTE, and Absolute.
And bear in mind that the exact range of channels permanently expands and tends to change every few months or so.
Updates are automatic so don't worry you have nothing to do but channel surfing.
