    Hi there,

    I just moved to UK, I'm going to stay here for a couple of years, so I definitively need to buy a TV!

    Plan is to take it with me when I go back to Italy, but here comes my doubt: transmission in Italy uses both UHF and VHF band (for instance, the main national broadcasting channel goes on VHF...), while I've heard that TVset sold in Uk can recieve on UHF band only.
    Is that true? No way to get a UHF/VHF TV?

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome.
    Yes, I'm afraid that is true.
    You won't be able to buy a new Tv anywhere in the UK with a VHF tuner.

    Not quite.
    With modern tuners in TVs VHF can be supported as this is used throughout Europe.
    The main thing is to check that Italy can be selected as a country in the set up of the TV.
    It is just that in UK set up VHF bands are not used.

    There are factors other than frequency, still check the TV has Italy in it's list of countries.
