do freeview boxes require an aerial to be plugged into them?
at the moment in our house the aerial points for the rooms are not working. and in one of my mates room, she has put a protable aerial into the bck of the freeview box and it has a crystal clear picture. is that the case with all freeview boxes and protable aerials?
please educate me about freeview boxes and connections with aerials.thanks in advance for all your help

Hi Kong

Yes they need an aerial; depending on where you are etc what you need can range from a piece of wet string to an external with an amplifer and high quality cable.

There is a reception checker here . It tends to be pessimistic if you have an external aerial but if you can only use an indoor aerial it might be optimistic; hope you follow me.
Your best way of knowing if you can get Freeview with an indoor aerial is by borrowing a box etc and trying it in your room.
Let us know how you get on.
