42 inch TV Purchased this tv as 42 inch when you take out box looks much smaller. 24 July 2014
short life tv When I bought this hitachi tv I was so happy that I got a bargain but after one month picture gone so I took back to Argos. They said screen damage from insid so its accidental damage & I have to pay for repair. I'm not happy with poor quality product because outside screen got few unnoticeable minor scratches but inside screen got damage some how. I didn't bother to repair & I would prefer to buy some other brand. 24 July 2014

Answer: 
Hi Normski,
You can use this TV with a satellite dish by connecting it to the TV through either the Scart socket or if you have Sky HD, Virgin Tivo or any box that has an HDMI output you can connect them to the TV by HDMI.

Answer: 
hi,
yes this tv is able to receive RTE.
you know this when you see in the description of a tv that it has a FREEVIEW HD tuner.
it is always important when looking at the spec of any tv that you want to receive RTE on that it has a freeview hd tuner.
you will see other tv's listed that have a freeview tuner but these will not pick up the signal from the southern transmitter.
The important thing to look for is the letters HD after the word FREEVIEW.
So always check tuner type.bye
