smart tv really good value tv.Easy to set up 15 October 2014
Good telly Needed a bigger telly (Rugby World Cup's coming up!) with a Freeview HD tuner. Good telly at a keen price and easy to reserve and pickup from a local store But I haven't found how to switch it off yet...... 30 September 2014
Hittachi hxt12u great price and service from Argos easy connectivity and set up smart apps really good i player particularly good 30 September 2014
Hitachi This TV is pretty good, although some of the functionality leaves a bit to be desired. You cant watch a program and scroll through whats on next, without completely closing the screen, and not all features are available on internet settings. Sound is okay quality but tends to vibrate at higher levels. Great picture though and pretty fast response rate. 29 September 2014
great for the price Bought this tv in the sale as my original tv was irreparable, sound is good as is the picture, my main issue is connecting to the internet or streaming film/pictures through the WiFi dongle(sold Separately) it often disconnects and on times the tv is not findable when searching for it through your phone/tablet. The hdmi and other outlets to rear of tv are quite snug against my wall when connected didn't have this with my last tv(Bush) as the connectors were deeper into the casing. 21 September 2014

Answer: 
Hi ellie-lou,
If your router for your sky broadband is close to where you want to put the TV you can connect the two products using a LAN (ethernet) cable. If you want to connect the TV to a wireless network you will need to purchase the dongle.

Answer: 
Hi Normski,
Recording programmes directly on the TV is not possible. In order to do this you will need an external recording box as you suspected.

Answer: 
Hi Normski,
If you are satellite box is able to receive channels then there is no issue with connecting your satellite box go the TV to watch that content. It is possible that your satellite content provider transmits the Freeview channels as part of their package. If however you do not receive the Freeview channels through your satellite content provider and want to watch them you will need a terrestrial aerial input to tune the TV into them
Hope that helps

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
