Nope, you need to get the aerial socket/tuner repaired.
Your only other alternative is to buy a Freeview box and plug the aerial into that.

No, but you may be able to get it repaired? Depending on what/how you broke "it" a fix may be easy or hard to do. A photo or two might help?
Check if you have accidental damage cover under your house contents insurance?

You may be able to use internet 'catchup' such as BBC iPlayer to watch at least some programmes?

No you can't, have you got a satellite connector you can use instead ?

Thanks Rodders I was just trying to see if I could do something on the immediate front till I get it fixed. Don't laugh I had a brain wave thought what about if I plug in vhs ha ha so dug it out of storage as years ago we got signal from it but should have guessed that not work. Thanks anyway

The cheapest option until you get it repaired is to buy a cheap Freeview box, plug the aerial into that and connect the box via HDMI (or scart if it's a real cheap one) into the TV.

Thanks Simon Lewis there is a dish outside but I'm none the wiser how that would work thankyou
If your TV has a satellite tuner and you have a feed from this dish that would get you viewing.
Report back with the model number of your TV...it's printed on a label on the rear.

No many tv's have a sattelite tuner built in. It will be a screw on connector typically next to the normal aerial socket on the rear of the tv. If you have this, the cable from the satelitte dish connects directly to the tv and you can watch freesat directly without a sky box or any other equipment.
