Im looking for a really good 46-50" Sony braiva TV


Standard Member
All the versions iv looked at so far have freeview HD, so the price is increased alot.

So now im thinking of getting Freeview HD. But is it worth it? i mean will a normal aerial work that showed freeview before show the freeview HD? or will i have to pay someone to sort the aerial out before?

I intially wanted to only spend £700-800 but now that seems unrealistic

Please, any help at all would be really useful.

As long as you have a good signal and you're in an area served by Freeview HD there shouldn't be a problem.
Best bet is to provide your postcode and ask in the Freeview forum.

ok thanks. are those freeview HD tv's 3D ready?iv seen some panasonic tvs 3d ready, but im not sure whether to go for these as i dont get what the difference is. Dont you have to wear glasses for 3D anyway?so it would work with all sony bravia's?

3D TV's are a different breed and AFAIK cost £1500 or more. I believe Sony have launched a 3D TV range but these are not your run of the mill Bravias.

As JayCee says be careful as Freeview HD coverage is very very limited at present. Also I think it is highly unlikely that 3D TV will be available on Freeview for at least several years if ever.
