What do I need for Freeview?

If you bought your TV in the last five years, Freeview is probably already built in, then simply connect it to an aerial and off you go. If your TV is older than 2010, you may need to buy a Freeview box or a Freeview HD Recorder to watch TV in high definition.

Do I need an aerial to receive Freeview?

Yes, Freeview is TV through the aerial, so you’ll need an aerial in good condition. Even though, most aerials support Freeview, the reception of over-the-air signals is only as strong as its weakest link. You should only rely on high-performance DVB-T2 aerials optimised for full-HD reception, using integrated low-noise amplifiers to deliver optimal signal strength.

Should I use an indoor or outdoor aerial?

The usual rule of thumb is to use indoor aerials when living up to 15 miles away from the nearest broadcast tower and outdoor aerials when living further than 15 miles away. However, to be sure of buying the right aerial, please use our Aerial Wizard to find the right aerial based on your location.

Which aerial do I need for interference-free reception of Freeview?

In cities, where mobile phones and Wi-Fi signal can interfere with the incoming signals, we recommend to use an amplified aerial with integrated 3G/4G filter for crystal clear reception.
