Should I be able to pick up "terrestrial tv" from the Virgin cable that comes into my house while I'm waiting for my freeview aerial to be installed?
Or is all that piped in on a different band/frequency or whatever?
Where I live, the whole town has been cabled.
The council don't really want every house to have an aerial on it.
They tried to stop us having satellite dishes but lost out.
So every house has a cable feed with BBC1, BBC2, ITV, CH4 and CH5 regardless of whether they subscribe or not.
Should my freeview recorder pick up on these 5 channels?
