Can I get Freeview on all the TVs in my house?

Yes you can get Freeview on all the TVs in your house.

If you don't have Freeview|HD coverage, you'll need:
  • A satellite dish to pick up signal;
  • A splitter to split the signal cable into the various rooms / TVs;
  • A Freeview Satellite Digital Receiver or MyFreeview Satellite Digital Recorder to tune in the signal (the signal cable is connected to the receiver/recorder, which is then connected to your TV).  If you have a 2014 Samsung or LG Hybrid TV, then you don't need an external standalone receiver / recorder - the signal cable can be connected direct to your TV (this is because these hybrid TVs have a satellite receiver built-in).
