1. Reception
Your reception of Freeview depends on your location and may be affected by:


- The signal to your aerial being obscured by trees or buildings or weakened by bad weather
- Your aerial not being pointed in the right direction

To make sure that you get the best the picture quality possible we recommend:
1. Connecting TV equipment with the best quality connection available (HDMI, Component, SCART and Composite in that order)
2. Use good quality RF cables if you have none of the above

If you still have poor reception an aerial upgrade maybe required, in which case you should get in touch with one of the following: The Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) or the Independent Standards Commission (IDSC) - who can give you details of one or more aerial engineers who operate in your area.

2. Installation
Simply plug your existing TV aerial into your digital TV or Freeview box.


Setup
Most Freeview boxes come with an automatic set-up feature that will automatically find the stations you can receive.
