Can someone give a potted definition of Freeview please? I saw the 
flashy ad on TV 7 this week and couldn't make heads or tails of what 
it was. I haven't bothered going to the website after all the hubbub 
about it on Link. I'm not going to sit to wait for graphic of words 
to load on my computer. That's just daft.

They say it's free to air. How is it different from HD set-top box? 
Is it just rebranding of something that's already happening? Is it 
the enablement of the extra channels that the networks have been 
sitting on? What the h is it?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
