    I've heard that you can get freeview on sky but cannot see anything
    about it on Sky's site.

    Anyone know if this is an option on Sky and where to find details?

    Sky are intoducing their own "free to view" service, not "freeview". They
    can't call it "Freesat" as the BBc already have that name licenced. You
    basically pay for the box, and then watch a subset of Sky's subscription
    service for free.

    Thanks for all the replies; I've found Sky's version called freesat,
    frankly I think the free to air freeview boxes are better value.

    Strange, I thought Sky had some partnership interest in freeview and
    wonder what their interest really is.

    Pundits thought SKY's interest was in keeping DTT "free", and then TUTV
    appeared. In which case SKY thought they needed a "spoiler" which would
    allow an upgrade path to SKY's subscription services, not to TUTV.

    I've only got a small outdoor aerial in the loft and it works fine,
    although I'm NW London and Crystal Palace is South there is very
    little in between to affect the signal.

    You've thrown me a wee bit - the URL is all about batteries.
