Is digital television (Freeview) the same as HDTV (High Definition TV)?

Posted October 19, 2012 - Getting Freeview HD

Not quite. While all TV in the UK is now digital, high-definition television (HDTV) offers better picture and sound quality than standard broadcasts.  To view Hd broadcasts you need HD equipment – a Freeview HD TV (most large TVs from the big manufacturers have Freeview HD), or add a Freeview HD recorder to an existing HD-ready TV.  There are currently upto 15 HD channels available on Freeview (depending on the channels available at your address).
