Is it really FREE?

Yes – Freeview is the free-to-view TV service. Once you have digital-capable equipment, it’s free. No contracts, no fees, no ongoing costs.

How do I get Freeview?

If you have an analogue or standard definition television, you will need to purchase a HD set-top-box, digital video recorder (DVR), or home entertainment console that has both DVR and digital tuner capabilities, such as a PS3 TM with PlayTV TM attached. Otherwise, you can purchase a HD integrated digital television to replace your existing TV. If you already have a HD digital television, you are already enjoying the benefits of Freeview.
