Freesat Launch Day!!!

Today is the day! Freesat is launching at last.

Freesat set top boxes should be available from Currys, Dixons, Comet, Argos and John Lewis from today. Installations should be available from the same retailers, but if you already have a sattelite dish installed, you may just be able to plug the set top box in and get freesat without having to pay for installation.

Freesat is to remain subscription free according to the BBC.

The official launch time is at 12:30pm, and a press conference is due to take place on BBC Radio. The freesat website should also be updated today.

Interesting launch - one of the quietest I've seen. Great to see a new service launched though - even though some problems with supply of boxes.

If you're interested, there's some coverage of the first day of Freesat, in a podcast, at http://www.frequencycast.co.uk/freesat.html
