What TV Channels would suite me
Freeview or Freesat


Freeview channels are all completely free, without any monthly subscriptions and received via a TV aerial, together with a Freeview set top box or integrated digital TV (IDTV). Charles carries a full range of aerials all capable of receiving Freeview.

All of his installed aerials are made by leading manufacturers and cabling is compliant to CAI standards, all installed to improve the quality of TV reception.


Freesat is a digital satellite service, using a dish to receive the signal rather than a conventional aerial, giving high-quality reception, making it especially suitable for homes where normal Freeview digital signal is not particularly good.

As the name implies, Freesat is a free TV service. Specifically, in the Uists, Freesat offers a broader range of channels than Freeview. There are a few differences – check out the Freesat website for a full listing of channels available to ensure you are making the best choice for your viewing requirements.

To receive Freesat, you need a standard type satellite dish, with a separate cable from the dish to each room for the Freesat signal (you cant split a satellite signal in the same way you can split a conventional aerial signal) In each room where you wish to watch TV, you will need a Freesat receiver box connected to the TV if your TV does not already have one already built-in.

If you are having problems with Freeview digital reception due to poor signal strength which cannot be improved, then Freesat is well worth considering.
