Do I need an aerial for Freeview?

The short answer is yes you do need an aerial if you want to watch Freeview on your television. However, there are a few things you ought to check out to ensure that your pictures are crystal clear.


The first thing to look at is if you already have an existing aerial on your roof. If you do, double-check the cables and the socket on the wall for damage. Once you are happy everything is intact then it is a matter of plugging the cable into the back of your television or Freeview device.

It is possible to use an indoor aerial, but your reception quality will depend on the signal available and might be subject to any interference from other devices.

Do I need a Freeview Box?

Unless you have an older television, most TVs come with some sort of Freeview installed within it. Have a look in the television’s user manual to confirm if you have it available.
