Freeview Reception

With 98.5% of the country being able to receive FreeviewYou should be able to enjoy the Freeview service through your existing aerial.  However, even if you are in a Freeview coverage area and your reception is bad it is possible you may need a new aerial if it?s not in good condition.  We recommend you contact your local Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) installer listed in the Yellow Pages. If you live in a flat or building with a shared aerial we recommend that you check with your landlord whether you can receive the Freeview service. www.freeview.co.uk
