    No, because Freeview is a terrestrial system that needs a (preferably roof) aerial rather than a dish.

    Oh and welcome to the Forum. :smashin:

    Satellite requires a dish and lnb (Including Freesat), Freeview is a terrestrial service and requires a conventional uhf aerial. So the answer is you can't use a dish for yout TV's Freeview tuner.
