All content on KSL Technical is regularly updated to reflect the latest technical developments in the fields of HDTV, including the BBC Freesat HDTV service.

Answering technical questions is a time consuming business, so if you can't find an answer to your query by searching the site, we request that you consider using our paid technical support option for just £19.95 + VAT where we will provide a personalised answer your questions either by e-mail or telephone (UK landlines only).
