From what I can see it is simply about harmonising technical standards for broadcasting and things like IPTV services. It is not about making TV channels available across Europe.

Most of the reason...

Nothing at all wrong with a TV with built in Freesat any more than having one with built in Freeview when Freeview PVRs exist.

For example can you record one thing while watching something completely different. It may not be able to...

Not so easy in the north west. Winter Hill and Moel y Parc main transmitters have a number of overlapping mux frequencies. So it's not so easy to exclude one and just leave the other.

Works the other way round. If you call someone and don't hang up then their line is held open until you do. Even if they hang up and try to dial again. It's how some scammers operate.

Unfortunately it doesn't. All they have to do is hang up and they can call someone else. Meanwhile it is YOUR line that is blocked for anyone else who may need to call you.
