Question: Do I Still Need A TV Aerial?

Question: Do I Still Need A TV Aerial?

No, you will not pick up any stations without an aerial.

Since it is a smart TV it should have internet TV services built in.

Such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, just to name some.

So, you will not need an aerial, unless you want to watch live TV in your area.

Do you still need an antenna with a digital TV?

Some antennas only provide good reception of VHF or UHF channels, but not both. Even if you use a digital-to-analog converter box, you will still need to use an antenna to receive DTV signals. Digital-to-analog converter boxes do not contain additional antennas or signal amplification.

Do you need an aerial for a TV with built in Freeview?

All TVs since 2010 come with Freeview built in so once you have unpacked the TV and set it on its stand/wall mount the most important thing you need is an aerial in good condition to pick up the Freeview signal. Plug in the aerial and turn the TV on. Most TVs will start with a set up procedure for you to follow.

Do you need an antenna with smart TV?

If you have cable or satellite service, you will continue to receive the same stations. If you don’t have either of those services, you’ll still need some sort of internet connection (DSL or cable) for the smart services, and then an HDTV antenna to pull in local, over-the-air broadcasts for free.

Do I need a TV aerial if I have a Sky dish?

It comes from a dish and needs to go to a satellite enabled TV or a satellite box. It will NOT work on a terrestrial TV. You need a ‘normal’ aerial for your set. You could use the same coax for Freeview terrestrial though, IF, and only if, you fit a TV aerial on the end that is presently connected to the dish LNB.
