You're all being brainwashed!! I got freesat last April ish and happy with it so far, apart from no History or National Geographic, we have all the rest of the channels. Channel swithcing is a little slower compared to UPC and you occasionally get "channel unavailable" and have to wait a couple of seconds (2-3) for it to come on. It cost 295 for the dish, box & installation. These are the guys http://www.freesat.ie/
They have an actual shop in Fairview which I liked, not like some of the ads you see which are just a mobile number and some guy working alone.
People just seem to be brainwashed as i said into sticking with Sky or UPC, wake up!!!
Never got a deal that way, my experience is they say fine off you go, they couldnt care less
People like to watch their favourite TV programmes these days by catching up on what they have recorded or On Demand.
