Can I watch TV without an aerial
No, you will not pick up any stations without an aerial. Since it is a smart TV it should have internet TV services built in. Such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, just to name some. So, you will not need an aerial, unless you want to watch live TV in your area.
Do you need an aerial for a TV with built in Freeview
All TVs since 2010 come with Freeview built in so once you have unpacked the TV and set it on its stand/wall mount the most important thing you need is an aerial in good condition to pick up the Freeview signal. Plug in the aerial and turn the TV on. Most TVs will start with a set up procedure for you to follow.
Do I need a digital aerial
First off, there is no such thing as a Digital Aerial. Most standard rooftop aerials that have been around long before digital TV are perfectly capable of getting digital TV, and for most people, there’s no need to change the TV aerial to be able to get Freeview.
Can you get Freeview through virgin
You cannot legally connect a third party European cable box to the VM network to receive the small amount of channels they currently send unencrypted. For free digital TV you will need either and aerial for freeview or a dish for freesat. It wasn’t a virgin media network originally.
What Aerial do I need for Freeview
Freeview is only available through an aerial (for the digitally minded, it’s digital terrestrial television system). If you are in a Freeview coverage area (use our coverage checker). Most flatscreen TVs have Freeview built in, so all you need to do is plug in the aerial.
Can you get Freeview through WIFI
Nope – the ONLY way to receive Freeview is through an aerial. You can also view broadcast TV through cable (Virgin) or satellite (Sky, Freesat, free satellite) and some channels will stream over the internet (BBC1 & 2 – most programmes) but it’s no replacement for ‘free broadcast TV’ that you’re looking for.
Can I use a fire stick without an aerial
Yes it works without an aerial so long as you have it connected to your Wi-Fi. If your tv has no aerial you can also watch live freeview channels through an app called Tv Player which can be downloaded onto the Fire stick.
Do I need a TV aerial if I have a Sky dish
It comes from a dish and needs to go to a satellite enabled TV or a satellite box. It will NOT work on a terrestrial TV. You need a ‘normal’ aerial for your set. You could use the same coax for Freeview terrestrial though, IF, and only if, you fit a TV aerial on the end that is presently connected to the dish LNB.
Can I watch Freeview on a smart TV without an aerial
Freeview is a service that delivers live TV via a TV aerial and is not yet currently available over the internet. The same is true for Freesat TV’s without a satellite dish connected. The live TV function would not work. I once had an early Sharp Smart TV that didn’t have iPlayer so the customer couldn’t receive it.
How can I watch Freeview on my TV
Plug in the aerial and turn the TV on. Most TVs will start with a set up procedure for you to follow. If you have a smart TV then it you will be asked for your Wi-Fi network and password so have these ready. Then you will be asked to tune your TV to find the available Freeview channels.
