My problem is with TV not PC - so if anybody can help, I would be most grateful - can anyone tell me what the difference is between 'freeview' digi box & 'sky' box also does a sattelite dish have to be installed on the outside of a house or will it still work if it is installed in a loft/attic space & finally what is the recomended size for a satelite dish, in other words which works the best

Freeview is free receives programs via your Ariel digibox is the tuner one off payment to purchase the box approx £20 or with built in HDD recorder £100 approx

Freestat is freeview via satellite, one off payment for dish and box, signal recieved via dish.

Sky pay per month, lots more channels, the more you have the more you pay, signals received via satellite dish and box

Sky also has its own Freesat box with more channels than the BBC/ITV Freesat Click Here

FreeSat gives more channels than Freeview, but not Sky programmes, for the cost of dish and installation only.

There's no subscription to FreeSat.
