My brother is moving into a flat that only appears to have a satellite cable coming into it. He doesn't want to sign up to Sky. Are there any Freeview/Set-top type boxes available that are compatiable with this? Thank you for your help.
And yes, as Mike says, an ordinary Sky dish and cable will screw on to a Freesat box and work straight away.
Another option is to get hold of a Sky box and then buy a "Freesat" (not the same service as the Freesat box) card from Sky which gets you most of the Freeview/FTA channels. Mine cost £20 but that was last year. You then pair the card with the decoder and away you go - no monthly payments.
