    I dont know if this is the correct forum, quite honestly, but i cannot see anything related specifically to set top boxes. If anyone knows of a better home for this please advise and i will relocate it.

    I'd like to hook my old LG LED telly up to a box/device which will make use of our wireless wifi connection to get content. i'm after good old bbc terrestrial stuff, not bothered about movies or series content at all. only really current affairs, documentaries, similar sort of stuff to what you would find on normal telly. i guess this might just mean iplayer which i'm not mad about but if that's it, i guess it would be a case of finding the right device to play the content back on.

    i dont have a laptop or anything to stream from. it would come straight through the device on to the television.

    Thanks in advance for any pointers!

    Welcome to the forum.

    It may be worth waiting just a little while for 'Freeview Play' devices to come onto the market.
    STB's are coming and later, recorders with built in Freeview Play.

    You can read more about the background here.
