My Satellite Setup
I have no receivers at the moment. I need to get info before I purchase.
My Location
Luton,Bedfordshire
After my Freeview box died and went to digital heaven,I thought I might go the Freesat route and get HD channels as a bonus. However I am a confused about sat. receivers. Basically can I get a receiver that will get Freesat channels but allow me to recieve other satellite output should I want to go further.

I do not want to purchase kit that will limit any future exploration of satellite entertainment. Any recommendations regarding a suitable range of recievers would be very much appreciated.

Yes you can.

The Humax Foxsat is a Freesat HD Receiver (non-PVR and PVR versions available) which has multi-sat capability.

I have a non-PVR one and it is so good I let my wife watch (but not touch) it.

The PVR is a bit stifled in non-Freesat mode, but overall they are both well worthwhile.
