Freeview Via Wifi

Recommended Posts

I have a TV in a room where to where there is no aerial socket.

 

Is it possible to get a device which will give me all the freeview chanels but via wifi, and connects to the TV via HDMI?

 

Thanks

I use a HDhomerun, that needs wired network and an aerial lead but t doesn't matter where it is, as long as the network goes to your router/WiFi. I don't know if HDHomerun do an app for TVs, so have a read up, I mainly use it on tablets and PCs. Other options would be a TV stick but the apps are normally all SD and tend to look a bit nasty...or they did the last time I looked.

 

Depending where you live an indoor aerial might work. I've NEVER got one to work properly!

Yes, it can be done quite easily.

 

New or second hand firestick (2nd generation) and a freeview app from the play store or Amazon's equivalent.

If you have Google Chromecast (Home) on smart phone you could try this solution:
