No it will not work with Freesat as only Freesat branded receivers will work for Freesat.
And the "engeldroid sat 1010" is not a Freesat receiver.

But it will be able to get the same free channels that are on Freesat, and a few other free channels that are not on Freesat.

So that would be a yes then possibly?
With that box I could continue to receive the same channels I am already getting?

OK thank you sat.

Do you know much about this particular model or of any good reason not to get that and go for something different?

As far as I know, all you have to do is manually add the channel 5 settings to the box, and you will gt C5. (or find online a channel list and upload it to the box). No "conversion" is required, whatever that means

Thumbs down

It looks like the BBC has now got round to blocking iPlayer use via Private Internet Access (one of the leading VPNs).
