What is Freeview?

Freeview is a free digital terrestrial TV platform in the UK, offering over 100 TV and radio channels without subscription.

How much does it cost?

Freeview is a subscription-free service with no monthly obligations. If your TV is Freeview-ready then simply connect it to an aerial and off you go. Only in case you don’t have a TV with build-in Freeview, you will need to purchase a Freeview HD or Freeview Play set-top box.

What do I need for Freeview?

  • TV with built-in Freeview (all TVs since 2010) or a TV with separate Freeview box
  • TV Aerial Shop here >>

Do I need an aerial to receive Freeview?

Yes, to receive Freeview, you will need an aerial. Even though, most aerials support Freeview, the reception of over-the-air signals is only as strong as its weakest link. For this reason, users should only rely on high-performance DVB-T2 aerials optimised for full-HD reception, using integrated low-noise amplifiers to deliver optimal signal strength.

Should I use an indoor or outdoor aerial?

The usual rule of thumb is to use indoor aerials when living up to 15 miles away from the nearest broadcast tower and outdoor aerials when living further than 15 miles away. However, to be sure of buying the right aerial, please use the Quick Aerial Guide available on the One For All website. Based on the distance from your nearest transmitter, the Quick Aerial Guide will select the best aerial for you.

Which aerial do I need for interference-free reception of Freeview?

In cities where mobile phones and Wi-Fi signal can interfere with the incoming signals, an amplified aerial with integrated 3G/4G filter should be used to ensure the best utilisation of frequency bands. Show aerials with 3G / 4G filters >

Does a DVB-T2 aerial also receive radio?

Yes, all DVB-T aerials from One For All, except for SV9015 and SV9125, support the VHF and UHF band and are therefore also suitable for receiving digital radio in DAB and DAB+.
