Freeview reception has changed? | Freeview Interference
Friday 18 November 2011 9:15PM

I am not familiar with tv in England, as I am a student, living in Sunderland, SR4 6EF.
1. Do you think I could succesfully use an in-room Dvb antenna for freeview? and if so, which one shoud i choose? I have an integrated dvb-t and dvb-t inside my monitor.
2. There is a sky dish left unused, what is needed to get it to work? is freesat better then freeview? Is it totally free? Which is the cheapest equipment needed?
Thank you!

Thanks you for your answer, however:
1.I did try a £18 indoor amplified antenna and I got 36 channels with on 3 channel 48, 53, 56, transmitter name North East (my postcode is SR4 6EF). The antenna NEEDS the amplifier to max position, otherwise nothing comes up. I live at ground floor and the antenna HAS to be oriented in the oposite direction as the antennas on rooftops of neighbours. It is also very sensitive to location, 3-4cm actually make a big difference.
If the indoors antennas wouldn't work, why would the local shops still sell them?
Anyway, as me being a student I NEED to use an indoor.
Is there a topic for indoor antennas/reception?
