What hardware will I need?

Without wanting to be the bearer of bad news, if you have recently bought a new TV with built in Freeview, or a Freeview Plus set top box, you probably won’t be too impressed by the news that you will need a new Freeview HD Box.

HumaxPace and Panasonic have all hinted that they will be releasing Freeview HD compatible devices on or before the launch of Freeview HD. The other major manufacturers such as SonyLGSamsungToshiba are all likely to follow suit in a market which is worth millions.

With regard to your TV, to best view Freeview HD you will need a Full HD TV with a vertical resolution of 1080 (not HD Ready which is only 720).

Keep an eye on this website for news of the latest Freeview HD receivers. We intend to feature all devices as soon as they are available and find the cheapest places for you to buy online in the UK. Whatever happens, you shouldn’t need any reciprocating saws!
