The one thing that I have noticed over the past 3 years is the massive conversion from Sky & Cable over too Freeview, the number of homes cancelling their Sky and Virgin contracts and buying Freeview Digital boxes is quite staggering.
Recently I spoke to a local Tesco manager and was told they could not get enough of them and there were times they could not keep them on the shelves.
For sure over the next few years anyone wishing to view TV will have no option other than to install Sky, Virgin Media or a Freeview Digital box - The alternative - Read a book or buy a Jigsaw !!!
For sport addicts there is really no option it has to be Virgin or Sky as at this point in time there is no wall to wall sport on Freeview but my opinion is that it will come in the future in the form of a BBC, ITV, Channels 4 & 5 dedicated sports channels if they do not they will fall by the wayside, on Freeview there is currently available, providing you are prepared to pay for it, Sentana or Eurosport at a price, Sky Sports News is provided Free.
There is a vast array of channels available for FREE on Freeview, hence it's name for those not mad about sport Freeview is more than adequate with a diverse range of channels including plenty of regular films an old favorite is the History Channel and in my opinion there are more than enough channels at present but they are for sure not finished yet, there will be more new and free channels in the future.
The boxes are simply to install and operate, the bonus is that your monthly bank account is not hammered as it is with Sky and Virgin.
For anyone considering Freeview my advice is to go for it, buy the cheapest box you can, they are all reliable, they are definitely worth the money.
I find Tesco to be the best supplier with prices starting from around the £20 mark, their after sales service is second to none.
Well done the BBC - you have got it just right guy's - Watch out Sky and Virgin you have a problem looming.
FREEVIEW Digital versus SKY
