NEW TO FREESAT IS FREETIME

What is Freetime? 

Freetime is a TV guide that showcases great content to watch, allows you to easily dip into catch-up TV from the BBC, ITV and others, and wraps it all up in an easy to use interface. Freetime was created by Freesat for set-top boxes and Freesat+ PVRs, but is now starting to become available on smart TVs, too. If you want catch-up TV but aren’t interested in Freetime, you can buy certain Freesat+ and Freesat HD boxes with smart-TV features that give you access to apps for BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and other internet services. These include devices from brands such as Manhattan and Humax both available from astrasat.tv. 

 

We can discuss your specific needs with you and advise on your best options. Want a UK IP address to make the most of TV Catch-up and players?
