Hiii guyssssssssss

Now unfortunately my university as well as many others, I'm guessing:confused: , doesn't provide SKY digital/Virgin Media etc in the accomodation rooms. (Well at least I don't think so anyways)

I don't think I can survive with just channels 1 - 5 , so i'm contemplating on whether to get a freeview/freesat digital box.

Has anyone done this??
What did your university say? Did they allow it?

Or is anyone thinking of doing this?

Thoughts/Opinions pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Freeview is essentially the same as normal aerial hook-up. There won't be any problems but you do have to pay the license fee.

If you really can't survive with just 4 channels then you should get a hobby (like TSR :awesome:)

Just get a freeview and TV licence. If you like watching TV and want the extra channels, it's worth it (esp since you can get a freeview box quite cheaply)

Get a TV Tuner for your laptop. There's plenty on Amazon, and you can record clips and play them back later with some Tuners. You still need a TV licence, but it saves a bit of space in your room.
