What is:

FTA satellite TV

Well, free-to-air means that a given channel transmitted from an orbiting satellite 35,786 km above Earth's surface directly to the humble satellite dish on our property, is unencrypted and needs no additional hardware or software to decode it other than the standard tuner and firmware inside our DVB-compliant satellite receiver. DVB is the standard video format for satellite transmissions in Europe, and is not a type of encryption or 'scrambling'.

What is:

FTV satellite TV

It should be made clear, that this is NOT the same as FTA. These are the so-called Free To View channels broadcast by Sky to the UK. To view these channels, you will require a 'Yellow House' card - a viewing card supplied by Sky for a one-off fee of 20 and available by calling Sky directly. Details of the telephone number and terms and conditions can be found at the Sky 'Freesat' website HERE.
