What can I watch with this TV dongle?
This digital TV dongle is great for anyone who wants to watch and record live TV from your computer or laptop. It connects through a USB socket and is compatible with Windows 8, 7 and XP operating systems. This dongle can tune into digital terrestrial TV (DVB-T) signals, such as Freeview*, so you can have access to a range of channels. A mini rod antenna is included and others can be used due to the universal IEC/coax connection.

Can I record live TV* with this?
Supplied with this TV dongle is a flyer that lists the download location for the TVCentre 6 software. Once you have downloaded and installed this software and connected the tuner to the antenna you can watch TV in full screen or in a window. The software also allows you to record, pause and rewind TV, with the recordings stored directly onto your hard drive.

*Please note that you need to have a TV licence to be able to watch and record live Freeview (HD) TV, even if you are doing so from your computer.
