I currently have Freesatfromsky which Im very pleased with. How do I get the channels launched on Freesat, in fact are there any channels on Freesat that are not on Freesatfromsky? Do I need another receiver or dish or lnb? Many thanks, chuck

at the moment, you have what there is on Freesat standard definition, whether this will be the case in the future is another thing altogether. However, most will probably be available via the "Other Channels" menu.

You won't get the HD channels unless you have a Sky HD box AND pay the £10 a month HD subscription, even with a freesatfromsky card. So you won't get BBC HD or ITV HD, but other than those, I don't think you are missing any other channels, and if you are, as rolfw says, you can add them as they are free to air.
