    Freeview is received (always) using a standard UHF TV aerial i.e. the same fundamental type as regular TV. This TV has an onboard Freeview tuner so will receive Freeview without any external help.

    Providing of course you are in a Freeview reception area. Depending on where you are, and your existing aerial, you may need an aerial upgrade. This is due to a different spread of UHF frequencies used at some transmitters to those used for analogue (normal) TV.

    Is the TV any good? There is a massive amount of detail already on this forum. Most of it very positive.

    If considering the Sony 50" 3 LCD rear projector, might also want to have a look at the DLP rear projection, more expensive, but they have a better picture quality. LG, Samsung and Sagem (ok to very good in that order) all make these.

    Bulb thing? LCD and DLP rear-projection TVs have a lightbulb in them rather like a slide projector does. Except that it's typically some sort of high pressure discharge lamp. These have a finite lifespan, and are user-replaceable. The lifespan is the subject of much debate, with different estimates being quoted from different sources. Coverage of the bulb by warranties and extended warranties is also open to some doubt.

    The long and the short of it is - you may need to replace the bulb (at a cost of somewhere between 100 and 300 pounds) sometime during the life of the set, depending on your usage pattern and the state of your electrical supply, and, if you buy with an extended warranty on the basis that the bulb is covered, get this fact in writing.
