benefits or otherwise of going Freesat
I live in Chelmsford, Essex, but am not a native. We have been watching Freeview for a number of years, initially using a Panasonic set top box, but now a Panasonic TX-32LXD500 with Panasonic DMR-EX79EB PVR and Humax PVR-9200T. Everything used to be pretty good, or at least acceptable, but seems to have gone downhill in terms of reception since the National 'retune'. The signal breakup we are experiencing is not acceptable; contacted Digitall or whatever they call themselves who told me I should not be watching digital. I've only been doing it for about 10 years, don't they know anything?
Quite often we have a choice; switch to analogue or switch TV off. As a result we are contemplating a move to Freesat. Question is, will reception be better from satellite than from terrestrial broadcasts? Have taken note of other posts re having ariel checked over. Anyone feel qualified enough to give a very simple answer to a very simple old man??
