So if you’ve seen this post (click here) here are some answers to a few questions I’ve had regarding a DIY installed satellite system.
- what is FTA?
Free to air channels are channels broadcast by satellite unencrypted.
- OK what don’t I get?
All the sky channels are encrypted so you can’t get them. You also only get a now and next programme information – no seven day electronic programme guide (EPG.)
- What is FreeSat?
Free sat is a group of free to air channels that pay to be part of freesat and get put on the freesat seven day (EPG).
