No you'd need a television for that.

That's the idea. Just reading reviews it seems to be good if you're in a strong reception area but not so reliable if you're not.

I'd recommend having a check on Here to see how it is in your region

edit: as always..

Thanks you were very helpful.

I am in a strong signal area. Despite this, I had to return a similar model. So proceed with caution.

I'm in a good area according to digital uk, but have so many problems with indoor arial

And you receive a free towel hook when you buy the amplifier, nothing random there

Guff. You need a proper aerial for freeview.

Worth a punt

£11.75 Delivered for new, £12.75 delivered for B-Grade stock, both from same seller, Yup that makes perfect sense.

Absolutely hilarious!



+1, very nice

Does this actually work though?

I've had all sorts or indoor aerial's and amplifiers - all of them made no difference what-so-ever...

Me too tried many, don't know about this August, but the 2 I recommended above: if in the right spot even indoors worked better than a proper roof aerial. Read the numerous reviews too.

I have a similar one, though probably cheaper. I pick up all tv/radio in London including HD. Took me a little while to find the "sweet spot" in the room, you have to point it at the exact right angle which can take a good half hour finding one that doesn't give you digital blurring on the TV.

On my TV it helped a lot that in the digital tuning section of the menu, there is a bit where it shows signal strength/errors which updates as you move the aerial around. Your TV might have similar as it's just a pretty basic Panasonic.

All useless IMO, you would get a better signal by licking one finger on one hand, sticking it into the Aerial socket, whilst holding the other hand in the air....
