    Default BBC Freeview.

    Not a satellite question but TV related, When the BBC eventually starts to transmit it's free-view service, hopefully this autumn, does anyone know if the old ITV digi boxes will pick up these extra channels.

    As otherwise it would mean people who have them would have to fork out another 100 for a new BBC set top box, if they want the channels.

    Cheers.

    Yes I think its the same game as early DSB. First free channels to establish the platform then encrypted pay channels later. About a year I would guess.
