Assuming that you have a dish pointing at Astra1 (19east of south) connect it up put the card in the slot (it always feels like it's upsidedown to me) fire it up and keep pressing OK till it asks you to pick a Fr3 region when you just highlight the required region and off you go.

It's not the same satellite that UK TV comes from (Astra2) and even if you bought the house from french people the dish could be pointing at any one of 3 satellites.

I've emailed you, do feel free to give me a call

We have purchased the Fransat La TNT gratuite par satellite box but our french is not good enough to set this up.

Freeview is UK "free to view" TV via an aerial and not available outside UK, 

Freesat is UK "free to view" TV via a dish and can be viewed in or outside the UK by tuning in a set top box to the Astra satellite.

If you want the French "Free to Air" programmes (TNT)  these can be received either via a roof top aerial and a set top box or satellite dish / set top box.
