Service costs

Freeview offers no premium or pay-per-view channels and no subscription channels, the name distinguishes the service from ITV Digital, cable and satellite digital TV services. To receive the Freeview services, a set-top box (typically available from £10) or a new television with an integrated digital tuner is required. DTT reception cards for computers are also available for a similar price. Some viewers also need an aerial upgrade which can cost around £80 to £180.[4] In addition, the annual television licence must be purchased, as is required for all viewers of broadcast television in the UK irrespective of the method of reception.[5] Pay-per-view is the name given to a system by which television viewers can call and order events to be seen on TV and pay for the private telecast of that event to their homes later. ...

It was possible to receive Top Up TV selected Freeview set-top boxes or televisions equipped with a card slot or CI slot, however, this was discontinued in 2006 in favour of "Top Up TV Anytime", a service which depends on a proprietary set top box.

Coverage and reception

Approximately 73% of households are in a location that can receive Freeview broadcasts.[6] Maximum Freeview coverage of the UK whilst analogue and digital services are running in tandem has now been reached.[7] The British government plans to switch off analogue transmitters region-by-region, starting in 2007,[8] to allow for an increase in both Freeview coverage and transmitter power.
