    Freesat boxes now listed on Argos website



    They are all currently out of stock ahead of the launch date of 6 May.

    The boxes on offer are:

    Goodmans GFSAT200HD Black Freesat HD Digital Box - £149.99
    Bush BFSAT01HD Black Freesat HD Digital Box - £119.99
    Goodmans GFSAT100SD Silver Freesat SD Digital Box - £69.99
    Bush BFSAT01SD Freesat SD Digital Box - £49.99

    Installation is listed as £80 but of course if you have a Sky dish and the wiring you can just plug and play.

    Just search for freesat and the items will come up

    Doesnt your sky dish need a dual lnb for these boxes? Or is that just with Sky's HD box?

    They also state "upscale to 1080i" not 1080p?

    These boxes are not PVRs unlike Sky's HD box which has Sky+ functionality so a single LNB will be fine. I think 1080i is the standard for HD - it certainly is for Sky's HD box.

    25cm x 16cm. Tiny! Might be good for a small bedroom, or wall mounted tv.

    Dish installation going for £80 on argos too. Give it a month or so and i suspect PVRs for it to come out.

    If you want a list of channels, see here:
    http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html
    You will need to point your satellite dish towards Astra at 28.2°E to get those channels. You should also be able to receive channels broadcast from Eurobird (28.5°E).
