You can watch Freeview TV channels if the region where you live is covered by Freeview services either by using a Digital TV with a built-in digital tuner already, a Freeview Box connected to your TV if you use traditional analogue TV, your laptop and desktop computers with a Freeview TV Receiver plugged in or a Freeview TV Card plugged/fixed, a standalone monitor connected to a Monitor Freeview TV Receiver, a portable AV device such as a MP4 or mobile Hi-Fi with an integrated Freeview TV receiver.
Freeview boxes are widely used by households to watch Freeview channels by connecting such a box to a traditional analogue TV. It decodes digital signal broadcast from a transmitter to analogue signal before inputting into an analogue TV and feeds analogue audio and video signals into the TV set by either cable or scart interface.
There are three types of Freeview boxes, DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial), DVB-S (Digital Video Broadcasting Satellite) and DVB-C (Digital Video Broadcasting Cable) which are used by people to watch digital TV free of charge, via a satellite dish provided by a satellite TV company such as Sky Digital and via a cable TV company such as Virgin Media respectively.
Some AV devices such as DVD players and DVD recorders with an integared Feeeview receiver and digital-analogue signal convertor, in other words, with Freeview box, can also be used to watch Freeview by connecting to a TV set.
A Portable Freeview TV or a Portable DVD Player with integrated Freeview receiver can usually be used as a Freeview box by connecting it to a large screen TV via AV out socket.
Please note the number of Freeview channels and the quality of picture and sound may vary from region to region and also are different if you use different devices to receive Freeview. Please see Constrains at Present for details.
