Old TV sets require DVB-T2 decoders to receive myFreeview Digital Broadcast, if it comes with an AV/HDMI input

Types of aerials compatible for myFreeview Digital Broadcast reception:

Outdoor Aerial

Most recommended for more stable signal reception if directed towards the nearest transmitter. Usage of “booster” devices are not advisable as it will effect the reception of myFreeview Digital Broadcast signal.

Indoor aerials are able to receive signal from nearest transmitters, however more challenging due in case of physical obstacles such as mountains, hills, forest and high-rise buildings.
