    If it has a Freeview tuner then it will probably be for Top Up TV, check topuptv.com.
    One of the channels, ESPN, is supposed to be free this weekend, worth checking.

    If its a Freeview TV then its probably so you can stick a TopUpTV cam in it.

    It is a slot to accept a CAM, which in turn will accept a card. This is normally so that you watch Pay TV channels. Many satellite boxes also have CI slots.
