Sky's subscription stranglehold on high-def broadcasting means that many people simply can't afford to experience HD TV for themselves. But thanks to Freesat – a joint venture between the BBC and ITV which offers over 80 TV and radio channels via...

After having the new digital aerial system fitted to our Flats, upon a friends recommendation I though I would try out a 'Freesat' system. I reserved item online for collection at Slough Store. Only word I can think of is 'WOW'. I already had...

Good but user hostile


It does do everything it says on the packet but is not easy or intuitive to operate. The Panasonic TV does not switch to the HDMI connection automatically (we have a freesat box connected). The system defaults to DVD / CD so when you put in an iPod you...
