If you want freeview then ditch the dish and use a terrestrial aerial, satellite can only provide freesat, the clue is in the name 🙂

Freesat provides the same range of free-to-air channels across the whole country, as long as the dish is pointed in the right place.

 

Freeview (digital terrestrial) may be very limited if your signal comes from a repeater rather than a main mast: we only get the PSB channels and their variants here.

 

There's also a small difference between Freesat and Freeview overall, plus a large (and rapidly growing) difference between broadcast Freesat/Freeview and online Freeview Play.
