    To be honest, me and the trouble and strife, are more into watching movies than we are sitting down watching the mind numbing crap on TV. Having said that, we have just moved house, and even with a high gain roog arial and booster, we still cant get a decent picture on the telly.

    Sooo....question!! Will buying a Freeview box make any difference at all to the picture/reception on my SAGEM AXIUM. If so, can anybody suggest a decent machine. Cost isnt an issue!!

    Cheers

    Depends on what your picture problems are. If it's a weak signal causing "snowy" pictures, then you're unlikely to get Freeview either. If your problems are due to "ghosting", then Freeview could be an option. The DigiFusion Freeview boxes seem to give as good a picture quality as Sky, in my opinion. Sky are also now doing a similar option to Freeview, for an outlay of £150 with no monthly subs, you can get a larger selection of free-to-air channels than on Freeview.
