    I was reading a posting on this forum and it said that a Starview box can pick up free to air channels that NTL don't provide,so could someone tell me whether this is true and if so how can I get my Starview to pick them up ?

    As far as i know u can only get channels which n*l offer. whether u get them free or specific pay ones . ie adult channel. playboy etc
    eg. If your in ireland u wont get some of the n*l channels that can be got in Uk....
