Q:

Do I need an aerial for built-in Freeview?

A:

Like most digital over-the-air services, Freeview requires an aerial for best reception. Most digital televisions do not include a built-in antenna, so natural reception of signals is extremely poor. A UHF wideband aerial is best for receiving Freeview signals.

There are two types of aerials suitable for digital television. Old fashioned unpowered aerials may look like old-style rabbit-ear antennae, or they may appear as a flat panel. These should be placed near a window or outside wall for best reception. If reception remains poor, a powered aerial may be able to boost the signal received over the air enough for suitable viewing.

    What is 480p resolution?

    A:

    The shorthand "480p" refers to a 480-pixel vertical line that is progressively drawn together with other vertical lines. This mode is in contrast to 480i where each odd or even vertical line is drawn/interlaced at the same time. Interlacing requires less bandwidth, but results in a worse image.
