Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has tried this in India? I'm in Bangalore and wondering if I could install it at home.

Thanks!

Freeview is a UK only service via rooftop aerial. Freesat has a wider audience due to the fact that it is broadcast via satellite and can be received across a lot of europe as well as the UK, you are a bit far away to receive the services in India.

I quick search on the internet suggests that similar services are available in Bangalore for local / national Indian channels, some free, some via subscription. It also looks like the Indian digital tv services use the same standard as in the UK, DVB-T and DVB-S which means that you may be able to buy receivers from the UK.

There are others on this forum who may be better qualified to help you.
