    Most of the channels are duplicated on "free to air" and "free sat" with only the odd ones differing:thumb:

    Three situations:
    a) Channels broadcast on Freeview are received through an ordinary aerial.
    b) Channels broadcast on Freesat are received through a satellite dish to which a Freesat decoder box is connected.
    c) Channels broadcast on free to air satellite are received through a satellite dish to which a free to air decoder box is connected.

    Some channels boadcast on all three so can be received by all three methods.

    It will simply be a number of channels which are broadcast by both methods.
