Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps. 4.4 5 388 401
Worth every penny firstly check length of power lead as it is short for wall mounted fixing. If you are fixing too established wall mounting you will need to buy different size screws to fit to bracket as they have changed size at back of tv to M6 screw the question got asked a lot on here but was never answered. The sound is only tinny if you have it on full volume,which I never need to do. This is a good buy! 03 December 2014
Love it Love this TV I brought a lead and linked it up to my Internet and it's gr8 being able to use the Internet thro ur tv the typing process is a tad slow tho 11 November 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
