I was thinking of getting my parents a new TV for Christmas as a surprise. I was looking at the LG 37LF7700 with Freesat HD.
I haven't lived in the UK for a long time now so I'm not too clued up about Freesat. I've had a look on the internet but it's a bit confusing, what with paying for a decoder, free channels yet you have to pay Sky money, and the need to have a satellite dish installed.
My parents have a Sky dish but don't currently have access to Freesat. Is it a simple case of connecting the dish up to the TV to get the signal, or is some fee still needed, or is payment to Sky needed to pick up the Freesat signals, rendering the point of the TV having Freesat HD null and I can get a cheaper TV?
