Freeview is a new television package, which allows you to update your television from the normal BBC1+2, ITV1 and CHANNELS4+5.
This little box is amazing it give you more of a selection of programs to choose from.
Freeview has something for everyone. Even children of all ages.
This is important if you wish to BAR some channels from the kids. It is easy to do. Enter a 4-digit pin code and when you next request that channel enter the pin code and watch happily.
***Speed of Freeview***
Freeview is pretty fast at searching channels it found over 30 channels in less than 2 minutes on mine.
***Other alternatives to Freeview***
There are not many alternatives to Freeview apart from the famous SKY packages. But you do have to pay a monthly subscription for the packages you select, with Freeview you dont.
You can also get recordable boxes that record your programs when you cant. Sort of like SKY+. But this is quite expensive to but. Prices start at around £150.00
***The Legal Bits***
To run the box it is free but you must have a television license to run it. On most circumstances you would not need to purchase a new Arial. But in some case you do and this can lead to alot of problems especially if you dont know how to put the Arial up.
***My Personal experience with Freeview***
Time to be honest now. The first day I got this is was glue to my sofa with all that I needed around me including the Freeview remote control. Freeview have got a new top-up package coming out soon but this is going to cost you around £7.99 for life. This is not an essential part of the Freeview system as you can watch the channels, which come with whatever box you decide to purchase.
Freeview in my area is perfect and you dont get the fuzziness on the screen like analogue TV and it is much easier to see what’s on without referring to the What’s on TV guide. All the program listings come up on the channel that you select and if for some unknown reason you dont want to watch that channel you can change over.
Overall the new Freeview box offers value for money and more great channels suitable for all ages. THE NEW FREEVIEW IS A MUST BUY BUT DONT THINK OF GETTING THE BOX CHEAP.
