    Does anyone know if you can get freeview at surrey/battersea court? I'm on the fourth floor so I should get a better reception than if I was on the ground but still is it a good signal in general as in good enough to get it through a tele top aerial or maybe do they have wall sockets to connect your tv from there?

    Thx MM

    That I know for a fact you can't do, says so somewhere in terms, in fact you're not even allowed to drill holes in the wall so that def means you can't get any sort of sky/cable.

    Is there anyone whose lived in battersea/surrey court and knows for certain whether you can get freeview?

    Still not much to complain about, if you can get freeview thats still pretty cool. I checked on some random website about reception (www.wolfbane.com/cgi-bin/tvd.exe) and if you put in your postcode it tells you what sort of aerial you need to receive freeview. It turns out the guildford transmitter is only a mile away so a set-top aerial is good enough (according to the website). Also the battersea/surrey/cathedral/university courts are on top of a hill so theres a very good chance of getting a good reception especially if you're off the ground floor.
