I'm a Freeview man myself - but Freesat has much better reception coverage.

Look North is way better than Calendar though.

I've been up the CCTV tower in Beijing at night but was rather disappointed as the view was very restricted due to the smog

Sydney tower was much better - Sydney Harbour/Bridge/Opera House, the coast, the Blue Mountains, the Olympic stadia, the city skyline etc etc

I think you'll find her name is Christa; I should know, I fancy her.

No, that's Freesatfromsky - hence the name. The BBC have given Sky permission to use the Freesat name while they get their own act together with the real Freesat service.

Still doesn't work for me as I would have to use the existing aerial which doesn't get YTV. The signal isn't strong enough for digital on my street anyway.

Climb the hill at the back of my parents house and you can see Almscliff Crag in the distance. It's immense. (this image from flickr)
