12v Freesat

Can I get freesat in my motor home or caravan? All you motor homers or caravaners know that it can be a real bitch getting electronics to work in a caravan. You need devices with 12v input or an inverter. So the question is, can you get a freesat box that has a 12v input so that you can use it in your motor home or caravan and continue watching all those great freesat channels, not to mention all the other non-freesat, but free to air channels that you can pick up with a freesat box.

The simple answer is Yes, you can. There are several freesat receivers on the market at the moment that can be run off a 12v power supply. These are ideal for use in a caravan or motor home, allowing you the pleasure of watching your favourite TV show or keeping up to date on news and sport even if you are on holiday. With digital switchover just around the corner, you might want to take the opportunity to make sure you are up to date with a digital receiver. So which models can you buy that will be compatible? The Goodmans GFSAT200HD box is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a bargain because it currently has £10 off at Argos. The Bush BFSAT01HD is also a great digital box for the budget conscious. Also available at Argos, the box usually retails at around £120 and is a good entry level digital set top box.
