Information on the Freeview Services


If you are unsure of what Freeview is and what is the difference between all the different types which you may have heard about we have prepared some information for you!


What is Freeview?


Launched in 2002, Freeview is a joint venture from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Arqiva and Sky that delivers up to 80 digital TV channel, including crystal clear High Definition (HD) content and digital radio all through a conventional TV aerial which was only previously capable of receiving four or five analogue channels. Prior to the analogue switch off and digital switch over which took place between 2005-2012, many abandoned their TV aerial and changed to pay satellite TV simply for a few extra TV stations and high quality TV pictures. This is no longer the case as Freeview is now the most popular TV platform in the UK. It is built into nearly all new TV’s and has been some time, making it perfect for a simple TV system or for extra TV’s around your home.


What is Freeview+?


Freeview+ plus essentially is the same as Freeview with the added functionality of being able to pause, rewind and record live TV to be able to watch at a later date. Freeview+ is usually supplied in the form of a Set Top Box (STB) with recordings usually set within the seven day TV guide and stored directly onto an integrated Hard-drive, no need to transfer recordings onto DVD’s or even Video cassettes. Many Freeview+ boxes also come equipped with an internet connection for Catch up TV services.


What is Freeview Play?


Freeview Play is the evolution of Freeview. Launched in 2015 it the amalgamation of live TV supplied via a TV aerial and catch up TV services including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 supplied via an internet connection. It is catch up TV made simple, if you miss a programme, simply go to your TV guide and scroll back up to seven days and press play, all subscription free! Freeview Play is being built into the majority of new digital TV’s but can also be supplied in the form of a Set Top Box.


What is Freeview Lite/ Freeview Light?


Freeview Lite is a reduced version of Freeview which is only available from relay transmitters across the county where limited services are being transmitted. There usually is a way to get a full Freeview service in most locations but often Freeview Lite is the only service which can be received – 99% of the time this isn’t the case however. There is approximately only half of the available services but Freeview Lite does broadcast the ‘main’ TV channels such as 1-5 and a load more.
