Personally I'd say if comparing a decoder only (no a MySky/MySky HDI) Freeview satellite.

Otherwise I'd say MySky HDI (since it can do HD - TV1, 2, 3 are HD for free and I think will upscale).

FV used to be noticably better until the bitrates were reduced. When that happened I tuned into the Sky feeds for TV1 and TV2. Not sure how they compare these days, because I now watch DVB-T mostly.
