How much will it cost?

Posted March 25, 2013 - Top 5 questions

Freeview has no monthly cost and there is no contract to sign.

If you have bought a TV since 2010, Freeview is built in already. Just connect a working aerial and away you go.

If you have an existing rooftop aerial, you should be able to use this to receive Freeview without any problems. In some cases, it might be weather-damaged or need other attention and some people may need an aerial upgrade to experience the complete Freeview service.

If you need a to repair or replace your aerial get in touch with either the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) or Get Me Digital who can give you details of one or more members who operate in your area and guarantee their work:

Find an approved CAI installer at Get Me Viewing

Find a digital professional at 

A local installer will understand the circumstances and local geography of your area and suggest the best option for you.

If you have an older (HD Ready) TV, to get Freeview you need a Freeview HD Recorder. Prices start at around £80. Take a look at the product range.

If you’re in the market for a new TV, or are looking to upgrade your box you should consider Freeview Play, our future-proof solution, which incorporates catch-up TV with your TV Guide. Simply scroll back through to see which shows are available on demand.

Remember, after the one-off cost of purchasing the equipment, you pay no subscription to receive Freeview.
