The Benefits of Freeview

//The Benefits of Freeview
Digital television production concept, remote control TV.

All flat screen TVs now come with built-in Freeview that can be accessed via a Freeview aerial, so you have the choice of up to 60 British TV channels without having to sign up for a subscription package such as Sky.

Sky does have its benefits. If you are a dedicated sports fan or movie lover, there are various packages you can choose to suit your needs. However, paid TV packages are expensive and many viewers are happy to stick with the Freeview channels.


The range of programmes available on Freeview is vast and varied, so here’s a look at some of the best without having to spend a penny on packages.


When it comes to award-winning, cutting-edge drama, no one does it better than the British. Both the BBC and ITV continuously turn out fine productions that are shown prime time on Freeview channels. Popular past and present productions include:

  • Period dramas such as Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey
  • Suspense dramas such as State of Play and Spooks
  • Modern classics such as Sherlock and Dr Who


Film4 is Channel 4’s dedicated film channel offering a collection of the most popular worldwide films from sci-fi and romance to crime and comedy.

Film4 productions also develop and co-finance some of the most recently successful UK films featuring the very best of new and established British talent.


Freeview offers a range of new comedy shows such as Bridesmaids and The Windsors on Channel 4 to popular BBC panel shows such as Have I Got News For You. For a trip down memory lane you can also catch classic comedy shows such as Birds Of A Feather on Drama.

Freeview also offers a range of channels dedicated to news, lifestyle, history and kid’s channels. For more information on Freeview digital compatible aerials, contact Midland Digital today.
