About Satellite TV Providers
The competition amongst satellite TV providers in the UK is not nearly as fierce as the rest of the broadband, TV and phone market. In fact, there are only two satellite providers in the UK; the subscription-based Sky and the subscription-free Freesat.
But just because there aren’t many providers it doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything for you to consider when choosing your satellite TV provider. Let’s have a look at the questions you need to ask yourself and the steps you need to take to make the right choice:
Can I get satellite TV?
One of the best aspects of satellite TV is how widely available it is. Unlike with cable, wherever you live in the UK you will probably be able to get some type of satellite TV service.
The best place to start your search is with our satellite TV postcode checker. This will tell you immediately which satellite TV providers and packages are available in your area. This is especially useful if you’re looking for a satellite TV and broadband bundle as our postcode checker will give you a good indication of the broadband speeds you’ll be able to expect in addition to telling you if you can get satellite TV.
Which satellite TV provider is right for me?
There are a number of key differences that separate Sky and Freesat as satellite TV providers so you’ll need to take these into account when choosing your provider. These differences include:
Subscription – Freesat is subscription free, which means that once you have your dish and set-top box you’ll be able to enjoy your service without paying an ongoing subscription fee. Sky on the other hand is a subscription-based service, so you’ll have to pay a monthly fee to keep the service running. Sky prices start at £7.50 a month.
Channels – With Sky you can get access to more than 300 TV channels, depending on your subscription whereas with Freesat you’ll get access to just over 100 digital TV channels.
Bundles – With Sky as your provider you can bundle your satellite TV package with other services including anytime phone calls and truly unlimited broadband. Freesat currently only offers a standalone satellite service so if you want broadband and a phone line you’ll have to consider other providers for those.
HD – Currently there are only handful of HD channels on Freeview so if you’re primarily making the switch to satellite TV to enjoy HD TV you’ll want to give serious thought to Sky. No other provider, satellite or otherwise, comes close to Sky’s 66 HD TV channels.
