It is strange when you look back and think that Freeview when it first came out was not something people wanted to embrace. Those that had not upgraded to Sky or cable were generally very content with their TV viewing as it was.
Nowadays, with most households having at least one flat screen TV present, you can see how Freeview has really taken off. If Freeview is not already built in to your television, you can always choose to get a Freeview box.
This gives you access to around 50 channels in full digital so you know there will be at least something on that can keep you entertained for a number of hours.
As well as the TV channels, you also get the opportunity to listen to the 24 digital radio stations on offer too.
With a Freeview box linked to your digital TV, you can enjoy a much better quality of picture and sound, while benefitting from plenty of interactive features which can be accessed quite easily from your remote control.
The Freeview box can now be mounted on the wall like with TV wall brackets as there are now mounts and shelves available which are designed to hold such equipment securely to the wall.
So if you do decide to take the plunge and go for Freeview, the unit won’t have to lie around on a coffee table while your television is mounted above. It can be installed quite nicely below the TV and so this makes things much simpler in terms of your TV viewing.
