But what sort of television system are you needing?

Freeview, Freesat or Commercial

FREEVIEW - Since the British Isles switched to digital from analogue broadcasting in 2005, all television sets that were sold from 2008 onwards had to be digital ready and feature a built-in digital decoder. To receive the digital programs a digital decoding device, or set top box was required for TVs that weren't digital compliant.

It is still required to have a suitable TV antenna linked to your digital TV or set top box to receive the television channels. In weak or low signal regions it's vitally important to have the best possible TV antenna or aerial installed.

Freeview, through a suitable TV aerial, features national channels together with Dover regional programming. You should be able to receive up to fifteen HD (High Definition) and over seventy SD (Standard Definition) channels depending on your signal strength and exact location. It is also possible to tune in to over 30 digital radio stations from across Britain.

FREESAT - Uses a satellite dish to pick up radio and television channels so a regular TV aerial isn't needed. Certain high-tech TV's come complete with an in-built DVB-s decoder, however more often than not you'll need a digital satellite decoder linked with the satellite dish to watch the programming.

In the Dover area you can tune into almost 300 digital channels (200+ SD, 20+ HD and 40+ Radio stations) using a standard set up of a Freesat dish and box.

Commercial TV Packages

It is quite possible to enjoy free TV channels from SKY, VIRGIN MEDIA and BT satellite with a channel count similar to Freesat or Freeview without being required to pay for their premium packages.
