About Us

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to watch great TV for free. That's what Freeview is all about. All you have to do is buy either a digital box, Freeview+ digital TV recorder or digital TV with Freeview built-in. It's simple, there are no strings attached and no subscription.

Once you have checked you are in a Freeview coverage area, make sure that your rooftop aerial is in good condition. That way you'll get great reception with the sharpest picture and the best quality sound.

The Organisation
