Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well I only have a roof aerial, and I wanted to get the HD channels on my HD ready TV, so I bought this set top box. It took a few minutes to set up, and it's fantastic. Input is via a coaxial cable from the aerial, and output to the TV is via an HDMI cable. I now have all the HD channels supplied by Freeview. Good purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little bit flakey I have had this device about a month and it works most of the time but crashes occasionally and looses signal from time to time when other TVs on the same aerial feed are working fine. It was cheap so I suppose you get what you pay for.

Do you need to connect this box to the Internet? I just want to receive the bog standard free channels

Asked by: Vick
It does not need to be connected to the internet, as detailed in the first line of the product description. *Enjoy a host of Freeview and Freeview HD channels straight from your aerial You can use the box just by connecting to a standard TV aerial Without internet connectivity you would just lose all online features the box offers. More info on the suite of channels available on FREEVIEW and FREEVIEW HD can be found here

Will this work off a sky satellite dish ariel?

Asked by: JBrogan
Sorry NO a Sky Satellite Dish is not an aerial, nor can it be used as one. If you wish to receive FREEVIEW you will need a box such as this plus a rooftop AERIAL. If you do not have one Maplin offer an AERIAL INSTALLATION service If you wish to receive FREESAT you can use your existing dish (as long as it isn't SKY-Q) but you will need a different decoder box such as
