I have both Freeview and Sky in my house on 2 televisions.
Technically standard satellite is far superior in both sound and
vision to DTT (Digital Terrestial Television).
The only downside to Freesat is the one-off cost of £150. But
this is soon negated if you need the latest digital rooftop aerial
in addition to the Freeview box. Any old rooftop aerial will not do.
Neither Freesat or Freeview require a monthly subscription.
According to Sky, Freesat has 295 TV and radio channels.
Freeview has 66. Freesat covers 98% of the UK
while Freeview currently only covers 73% of the UK.

Doesn't look much different to me.

They both have most of the same "main" channels (1-5, the other BBC & ITV channels, Sky 3, Sky News, BBC News 24, etc. etc. etc.)... with the exception of E4 & More 4, which are on Freeview yet not on Sky's Freesat (even though it does have Film 4). Most of the extra channels Freesat has seem to be more crappy shopping channels & so on.
I think, for free TV, Freeview is much better than Sky's Freesat.
While for Pay TV, Sky is far far superior to DTT's "Top Up TV", & also better than Virgin Media's cable TV.

will all affect the quality of your reception with Freeview.
Which channels you prefer is more subjective. Both services have
specialist channels that may be of interest to some. So check out both.
And first check you can actually get Freeview in your area.
