FTA

Free To Air. No encryption, no extra charges (you do have to pay a TV licence in Ireland and UK). You may freely receive the channel by any method for personal domestic use. Different rules apply to Hotels, Guest Houses, Community TV schemes and other redistribution. An Apartment Distribution system may freely distribute all channels as long as Pay TV channels are not decoded, it’s just aerial or dish sharing in this case.

Free TV For Dummies

I’m a guy who knows very little about how TV operates. I just like to plug the thing in and see it work. When I was connecting up my Sky box, I tended to just stick cables into the ports that fit like some sort of grown-up jigsaw rather than know what I was actually doing.

 

So it was with some degree of trepidation that I embarked on the road to ditch my monthly Sky pay TV and replace it with…well this was my first problem….what do I replace it with? So if, like me, you’re clueless with this sort of television techno-babble, read on and I’ll share my experience with you.
