Freeview, satellite and cable television stations are all available through TV receiver boxes. With a USB tuner from Hauppauge, even a computer can be used to watch live television. Set-top boxes are easily connected to your television: most can be connected directly to home cinema systems and are compatible with digital stereo and surround sound. If you have the right equipment, installing a dish or aerial is just as easy.
As well as aerials and dishes, you can also purchase cables, connectors and mounts. A satellite finder will help you to position your dish and LNB correctly, and signal boosters and attenuators ensure that you get a clear picture. Kits are also available and help to simplify installation.
TV receivers are available in HD, and many contain hard drives to allow recording and playback. Others include USB ports for external storage, so you can watch and record at your leisure.
