Ok I'm ready for a kicking, but I think this is a brill deal, especially for those of us who won't have Freeview for a long time yet, although it has a Freeview tuner too for those who can receive it.

It's not £199 like the 32" Tesco/Technika deal but this is some telly! All you need for freesat is an old sky dish (or fit a twin LNB to your current one).

Anyway, there is my 32" TV deal, if you are a bit of a doley get voting blue as it's not £200 - as my avatar suggests: GO FOR IT!

Happy New Year to all :)

Hot for me...

Not many Freesat Tvs around at this size at this price. In my opinion Freesat is a much better option than TVs with inbuilt Freeview, especially seeing that TVs with Freeview currently are not Freeview HD, which seems pointless.

There is no mistaking the bargain of the Technika at Tesco, however this will have a far superior scaling board and with Freesat HD built in (cheapest external box currently is £70) add these into the equation and its not far off the money.

Heat added.

Your sentence sounds a bit confusingly worded. Obviously you need a HD panel to receive HD transmissions hence any tv that is HD Ready, whether it be a 720P or 1080P panel.

Currently, freeview tuners inbuilt in TVs are only Freeview SD tuners, making them pretty pointless in a HD TV, whereas the Freesat Tuners built into TVs are HD, a simple connection to a satellite dish pointed at Astra 28 is all thats needed to receive HD channels (albeit only BBC HD and ITV1 at the moment) any TV bought that has a Freeview tuner built in currently will not be compatible with Freeview HD when it rolls out in the Spring next year, making them pretty pointless as an add on box will be needed.

Freesat HD = BBC HD (part time broadcast) and ITV HD.

Good luck with that

for now yes, but inevitable more HD channels will be added later, current freeview TVs are NEVER going to have HD however long you wait.

It's seems pretty pointless to even talk about freesat HD though when there is such limited programming.
#11
Very Good price!
But mixed reviews slightly put me off, particularly on SD performance from Freeview, doesn't appear to perform as well as the non Freesat 32LH3000 - recommend popping into your local TV store, grabbing an assistant and putting it through its paces first before ordering from Amazon.

excellent as has both FV and FS - HOT DEAL

Im sorry for asking but whats happening to freeview?

Limited programming? Where I live we won't have Freeview for 2 years yet - I'd call that a LOT more limited -no channels whatsoever versus 2 HD + a big range of SD.

Limited compared to the 30 or summat channels on Sky

Sure, it just seems a false economy to spend hundredds of pounds on a TV, satellite dish and cabling and not have any HD to talk of
#19
You are talking rubbish!

Freesat is an alternative to Freeview, not Sky. If you want Sky you can have that too, no problem, but you pay.

The two aren't comparable; one's free, one's pay.

Stop trolling the thread.

so if iplayer and itvplayer are coming soon does that mean this TV has an ethernet port to allow access to the internet?

Also how difficult is it to set up freesat, we currently have Sky multiroom at my house but i want FreeSat for my bedroom, is it dificult to set up the cables to the dish etc?

thanks for the reply so does that mean once freeview hd is out there will be no more normal freeview and my lcd that has freeview built in will be total waste?

Your freeview tuner will still work with standard definition just not with freeview HD

Will depend if you have any spare slots on your LNB which is the bit that the cables run into.

I'm not sure how this works with multiroom and if you if any free slots.

If you do, running the cables is pretty easy or you can get a cable fitter or spark to do it relatvely cheaply.

hot price

seems to have alot of flaws which have been revealed in independent reviews....avforums, which.co.uk

shame

And even more false economy to spend hundreds of pounds on a TV with inbuilt Freeview that is SD and not upgradeable to HD, when this has Freesat HD built into the unit as standard, name me ANY TV in this country with a cable tuner for Virgin HD or Satellite tuner with a viewing card for Sky HD? Your post is extremely pointless. :roll:

FreeSat = HD programming now, channels are set to rise.
FreeView = HD in the future, channels set to rise, no current TV has a HD FreeView tuner.

Paid HD services = Extra box regardless.

Comprendé?

What kind of cable is needed for Freesat? As far as I'm aware it's the same as is used for Sky; I ask because I live in rented accomodation with a Sky disc but no Sky Box (the previous occupant must have taken the box with them). However, the coaxial-like cable feeds from it to both the lounge and the bedroom still remain. I hear of people talking about cables (plural) with Freesat/Sky - is this purely if your dish has more than one LNB (for multiroom and twin-tuner HD PVRs etc), and the single coaxial-like lead I have here will work with single channel Freesat (ie. just one cable goes into the back of the tv or single channel set top box)?

Rep/thanks for anyone who can help.

Just the usual Coaxial cable with an F-Plug on the end from a Satellite dish pointed at Astra 28E (Which Sky is broadcast from)

If you want more than one box in your house, or even a Sky TV box and a Freesat box/TV, then you can buy LNBs for your Satellite dish with multiple connections, google Twin or Quadruple LNBs, some people already have Twin or Quad LNBs with their Sky boxes that have recordable tuners, to allow a record a channel whilst watching another.

Both transmissions are from exactly the same satellite though, so you can literally unplug a Sky or Satellite box pointed at Astra 28E and plug in a Freesat box or TV with your standard F-Plug lead.

HOT - I LOVE Freesat for the HD channels & I agree on the point made about buying a HD tv with non HD freeview installed - why bother?!

BUT Dave is not on the freesat catalogue!!
Oh, how I miss the endless top gear re-runs LMAO! :cry:

Heated and repped as it looks like a good price for a 1080p tv regardless of Free HD SAT

I am on the lookout for a new TV and was advised by all to go for the 1080p version to be geared to get Freeview HD when it comes out next year. However, I was quite disappointed that even though almost all the current large tvs come with freeview tuner inbuilt - none of them are geared for Freeview HD. At first it did seem pointless, but after looking around a bit I realised that they don't even have a release date for a Freeview HD box and none of the tv manufacturers are going to incorporate this in to any of the new releases. So my idea is to disregard the Freeview HD at the moment and make sure that SD Freeview looks good on the TV but get a 1080p so that I can get HD with a Freeview HD box when available (waiting for a tv with built in freeview HD tuner seems pointless as it is not going to happen any time soon and might be more expensive than buying the box).

Freesat HD does sound good but I am quite happy with the freeview channels available and the only other channel I would like to have is Sky1 which I believe is not available with freesat. And also living in a flat, fixing a dish is more complicated.

Extremely sorry if I am talking through my hat here as I have not done extensive research in to this yet but I thought I will share my views so that someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Got this but learnt after it's only 50hz and not 100hz.

This isn't true.

When Freeview HD is rolled out, it just means that you'll be able to recieve Freeview in high definition without a dish. You will need to purchase a set top box if you wish to get HD, but if you want to continue with just normal Freeview then you don't have to do anything.

It will be decades before standard Freeview is switched off.

Cheers, that's pretty much as I thought. I've just checked the ends of the cables* and they look much like coaxial cables - large image here.

In which case I'm assuming all I would need is a coax to Fplug adaptor, something like this?

* In the bedroom there is just one cable coming through the wall from the dish, while downstairs there are two. Does this likely mean the dish I inherited from the previous occupant has more than 1 LNB, and I have capacity for a twin-channel Freesat PVR downstairs?
#37
I can't decide whether to buy this or the Tesco £200 one. I know I won't be using Freesat on this until at least July when I move house.

What are the differences between the two? I'll likely be using it to play Movies/iPlayer through my laptop (have a hdmi adapter) and using it for Xbox (also have hdmi adapter).
#38
im going for this tv when i have money, been looking at it for awhile now, brill offer imo. :)
#39
Have been checking out tv's with free sat in for some time & this deal is well worth a look..
#40
Does anyone know if you can read media streams on this TV over the ethernet port coming from a media server? If someone with the same TV can respond that would be great.

Thanks.

Yes it says it does have the Ethernet port here - SCROLL DOWN
