Can I get Freeview through a satellite dish?

No, Freeview is only available through an aerial, not through a satellite dish.

Most flatscreen TVs have Freeview built in, so all you need to do is plug in the aerial. Or you can get a Freeview recorder that you simply plug into an existing TV. 

With Freeview you get 95% of the nation’s most-watched TV for free – just enter your postcode in our Freeview Checker to see which channels are available in your area.
