A freeview + receiver box would also allow you to pause, rewind and record live TV dependent on the receiver two or three channels can be recorded at the same time.
Similar to a freeview + receiver youview also has the added benefit of allowing seven day scroll back TV plus on demand TV, the youview website has full details.
You would need a good freeview reception and also an internet connection to gain the full benefit of freeview.
BT vision offers a great variety of channels which can add up to a fraction of the monthly subscription of cable or Sky TV.
BT vision subscription package’s start at around £6.00 per month, you can then add services or films on a pay per view basis, this flexibility tends to suit our customers that want to pay only for the films, on demand channels, shows or sports programme’s that they want to watch.

Feedback from: Mr Smith Tunbridge Wells TN1, engineer Ryan
New freeview aerial
“ Having been recommended to you by a neighbour I called and arranged a quote for my new aerial, the two men arrived as arranged and provided a quotation of for the work which I acepted and they installed it there and then. I am very pleased with the works, it was completed quickly and is a very neat job, they cleaned up after themselves and tuned in my new TV as well, like my neighbour I will also be recommending your services, it is so nice to find such a professional company”
Feedback from: Mrs Shaw Tunbridge Wells TN1 engineers Paul & Tom
Arranged and Installed Sky System
“Very helpful, They called ahead and I was able to leave work and meet the installers saving me having to take a whole day off. They got on with the works and left my house clean and tidy but most importantly with a working satellite, I just wish that I had gone straight to this firm instead of waiting in 3 days to have Sky turn up each time to say they could not do the works for one reason or another. Proper Sky installers.”

Freeview reception in the TN1 areas
The TN1 area is in the main provided freeview television channels by the Tunbridge wells transmitter.
Although the name implies the Tunbridge Wells freeview transmitter is located on the Pembury road and is nearer Tonbridge.
The TN1 area of Tunbridge well has an even split is generally good up near the old Hospital site but as you move down towards the Pantiles and town center reception can be very poor.
The TN2 post code area would generally have no problem and relatively small aerials can provide good results.
The TN3 postal code is spread out somewhat and it is not possible to generalise although in the main the reception is good there are some small pockets of very poor reception.
TN4 has a similar split as TN1 part are good and others can be tricky to gain good results these poor reception spots is where our engineers exceed.
Due to the undulating landscape in the Tunbridge Wells area the closest transmitter as the crow fly’s is not always the best for the most reliable freeview reception and our installers often need to look further afield for a reliable freeview signal.
The Heathfield transmitter can often provide better quality, our engineers have the local knowledge and experience to provide you with the best advice and most cost effective method of supplying your property with excellent results.
There are several relay transmitters within range that we can turn to for a freeview reception however most relay transmitters only transmit the (main) freeview channels.
There are various websites where you can enter your postal code and get an idea of the available reception but they are intended as a guide, there is no substitute for having a qualified engineer provide on the spot advice.
Our engineers using their many years experience of local reception conditions would be able to offer free advice and a quotation for the equipment needed to gain the best signals available to your property.
Whenever possible our first choice would be to use a local main transmitter as the signals from the aerial would normally be expected to run at least one television set without the need for a mast head amplifier, our advice would very much depend on exactly where you reside within the TN1, TN2, TN3 or TN4 area.
Freeview reception has improved since the digital switchover and we have attained good success rates in obtaining a good quality digital signal upon properties that could not get a reliable analogue reception.
It is not always our recommendation to get your digital channels via an aerial as it can sometimes be a cost effective alternative to take the non subscription satellite route to get a reliable reception. Freesat from the BBC and ITV offers all but a few of the freeview channels and is a viable and cost effective alternative to one of the larger aerial arrays. The dish needed is a mere 43cm diameter and these can often be installed without the visual impact that one of the larger aerial arrays can present. Our installers are satellite installation experts and can consider the available options and offer the best solution to each customer’s digital reception needs.
Cable TV or Sky can provide a solution to your reception problems but with the continual subscription of between £20.00 – £40.00 per month and upwards for one room this can work out an expensive option to a TV aerial, this route can become a very costly especially if you have a few TVs to connect, compare these subscriptions to a one off payment for an aerial or freesat system and you would be quid’s in within a few months.
