Some units not only have the Freeview channels as standard but they also allow you to purchase and view paid-for content alongside Freeview. This may require further hardware. Contact the pay service providers for more information.
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.
Simply plug your existing TV aerial into your digital TV or Freeview box.
Most Freeview boxes come with an automatic set-up feature that will automatically find the stations you can receive.
