    ....and get the extra channels?

    I know sticking the ntl broadband cable into the tv works for the main channels,through a vcr you get sky news plus a few extra.If you put it through a freeview box would you get all the extra ones.?

    The short answer in no. There would be nothing for the Freeveiw box to receive, as cable and terrestrial digital TV are different broadcast systems.

    They are not the same system so you need to buy a freeview box and you will get what the service offers and whatever you have on NTL.

    Is there any way of getting extra channels through my ntl cable modem?
    I have a splitter,one to my pc,one to my tv,but the tv is only the 5 main channels.
