I live in a very weak signal area and was advised to get sky, then stop the subscription and would be able to get freeview through the cable. I have done this, bought a freeview box and have tried to connect it, but it doesnt work. Was I advised wrongly? or what am I doing wrong?
I am not technical so answers (if any) need to be in very simple language for this silver surfer!!!
You will not be able to use the sky dish/cable to receive a signal from the free view box a free view box only receives a signal from a areal.
If you connect the sky box you will receive a few of the Chanel's check it against click here
If you are receiving all the Chanel's with your existing sky card you do not have to do anything. If you are only receiving some of the Chanel's you will need a freesat viewing card which costs £20 from the above link.
