Yet another reason, why I love Freesat!  People will the latest set-top-boxes can now use the new ‘Watch from Start’ feature in the TV guide. The ‘Watch from Start’ allows you to restart live programmes on all BBC channels without waiting for the programme to end.

Freesat is the first TV platform to include the feature within the TV guide, and customers will notice a small icon next to the programme name, which, when selected from the menu, will begin the programme from the start.

So just another reason, why Freesat, is better than $ky!

stv player on freesatSTV’s catch-up and on-demand service STV Player has launched on Freesat this week!

Which I am very pleased with! Since I use a Scottish postcode on my box, I had no way for watching anything from itv, using a on-demand service via Freesat, but that’s now been fixed!

Can also watch stuff from stv Glasgow now! Which is also well cool!

Now available on Freesat channel 251, we will be treated to world-class live and exclusive coverage of many of the season’s top professional races, including the Gent-Wevelgem, Tour de Romandie and Giro del Trentino.

I am so looking forward to seeing lots of HOT cyclists in Lycra!! 🙂

So happy that I can now use Netflix with my Freesat Freetime box! Great to see that Freesat have been working very hard, to bring new services and channels this month! In the last week, they have added Yesterday, Drama and Really. And now Netflix!

I have no idea why people pay $ky, so much a month. When can get so much for free!
