Happy New Year Cookybaby.Just when I was settling down to enjoy Freeview, We in Hawkes Bay have to Re-tune our tellies.On the 31st Jan.It has taken me a while to find details on my set.(Samsung).It's different for each make.My friend has a top box, and he has to re-tune with the retune Wizard. I expect there will some dilemma though as the old network is closing.
And a Happy New Year to you gerald 006!
I have Sky so I don't have to do nuffin'!
Sorry, don't really know much about Freeview. My sister was given a Freeview set top box for Christmaqs and she is over the moon with the reception and the extra channels she can now watch!

We bought ourselves a new tv with Freeview installed. It is okay but we wont rave about it. If you have an aerial with a dish we have heard that you get more channels than without. Sometimes we watch channel 7 which has documentries but we don't really watch all that much anyway. We use the off button quite a bit and prefer to either read or do wordpuzzles. Our garden takes up a lot of our time along with activities outside the home.

The Government has given free-to-air television a boost by ensuring its digital switchover package for pensioners will not be available for the new pay TV Igloo set-top box.
Broadcasting Minister Craig Foss yesterday unveiled a scheme to supply pensioners with free digital set-top boxes when analogue television signals are switched off.
The scheme will have $12 million to $18 million to spend on about 58,000 pensioners.
It was thought the Government might extend the scheme to Igloo, owned 51 per cent by Sky TV and 49 per cent by TVNZ, which is due to launch in the second half of the year.
But the packages will be limited to Freeview-approved set-top boxes.
Thanks for that Silverfern, and I have just read this< on Stuff/Technology.
