Now on freesat

Insight Radio is proud to announce that you can now listen to us on freesat channel 777.

freesat was set up to make sure that everyone has the best of free digital TV, no matter where they live in the UK. freesat came together formally in May 2007 as a joint venture between the BBC and ITV, a not-for-profit company owned by the nation’s two most popular broadcasters.

freesat say, "We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy free digital TV, plus free HD programmes, with no contract and no subscription, just a one-off payment. And because innovation is at the heart of everything we do, we’re constantly seeking out new ideas to improve our service and deliver a great TV experience for everyone."

Being on freesat is great news for Insight Radio as we are now available to 98% of the UK, sharing a platform with over 80 great digital TV and radio channels, including high definition (HD) programmes from the BBC and ITV – all for free. freesat also gives you super fast digital text and enhanced interactivity, as well as digital subtitles and, especially of interest to Insight Radio listeners, audio description.

An Insight into Big Brother

Our very own Michael Hughes has only a few weeks left in the Big Brother House.

Lately he's shaved his head, been annoying with a megaphone and been head of house ... you can follow his progress every night on Channel 4 or follow the link to the Big Brother website below.

Michael has been with Insight Radio since the early days and is a regular voice on the Daily Lunch. He also works  behind the scenes and as a reporter on the Early Edition, loving to get his teeth into a story of discrimination,  injustice or unfairness against a member of the blind or partially sighted community.

Michael Hughes

Although it's not all being Jeremy Paxman ... on the Daily Lunch 'Friday Feeling' section he's  been known to do things as diverse as play with puppets, go to a Madonna night,  stroke some chickens, shop for some sexy underwear and  even feel Kylie's hot pants (no, she wasn't in them at the time). You can read Michael's biography here - About  Michael Hughes - find out more about Big Brother here - Official Big Brother website.  - or listen to Michael on Insight radio here - Michael's Best Bits.

We're following Michael's journey through the Big Brother experience every day and we have a weekly chat with the voice of Big Brother,  Marcus Bentley, every Friday on the Daily Lunch.
