What are the advantages of going Integrated?

Integrating the digital tuner into the hardware as opposed to a separate receiver will improve the overall picture quality, unlike freeview, the manufactures and broadcasters agreed from the word go the system specifics. This should see a consistent quality and avoid unnecessary upgrades.

For those who have already bought an HD ready TV, you can still benefit from freesat as any TV set can have a freesat set top box added. Freesat also offers the only viable option for people in areas where freeview isn't available. Digital switchover is happening within the next 3 years across the UK with a complete loss of the analogue signal.

Unlike Freeview, freesat offers a broader range of channels and offers HD channels. Freesat is also available across the country which freeview still isn't!

There are now over 140 digital TV and radio channels available on freesat, including brilliant High-Definition programmes broadcast from the BBC and ITV. This will continue to increase over the coming months as the technology rolls out. Because the freesat service is a satellite based technology, the future capacity and expansion of the HD services is guaranteed. The future definitely looks good for the HD consumer!
