Question Do all TV's with Freeview Play also have tuner for standard Freeview via aerial?

Exactly as the title says. Looked at some TV's that mention Freeview Play but can't see any specific information that there's still a tuner for Freeview via the aerial too?

If it mentions Freeview, then it must have a tuner for it. Freeview Play is just an extension of Freeview giving "smart" facilities like iPlayer, it is not a replacement for Freeview reception via an aerial.

Thanks, I had found some TV's that include the fact they have a digital tuner in their specs or manual, but had noticed that some that are Freeview Play enabled make no mention of it, but do include the fact that Freeview Play means you can get Freeview channels over the internet with no aerial required. So was worried the latter might not have an integrated tuner!
