Freesat to launch on 6th May

Freesat, the free to air satellite service from the BBC and ITV, is set to launch on May 6th. The service will provide a Sky style 7-day EPG with Freesat branded receivers available initially from Grundig (standard definition) and Humax (high definition), with a high definition PVR available from Humax in a few months time and receivers from other manufacturers expected later. Initially Freesat will be available from Comet, Currys, Dixons and John Lewis, but after the launch period receivers will be available from a wider range of retailers. Freesat will particularly appeal to people wanting an HD receiver or a PVR as these currently incur a subscription charge from Sky.
