Hello.

I am looking at purchasing myself a new TV set. I have it narrowed down to two choices of an LG model and a Samsung model.

The tuner listed in the description for each is:
[LIST][*]LG - Freeview HD DVB-S2 - general purpose satellite tuner[*]Samsung - Freeview HD[/LIST]
What is the difference in the two types of tuner?

Thanks in advance.

The LG has a free to air High Definition Satellite tuner in addition to the terrestrial HD Freeview tuner that both TV's have.

To use the satellite tuner you will need a satellite dish in addition to your normal aerial.

For example a sky dish aligned on 28.2E will give you all these channels on the LG TV

It's only handy if you have or intend to get a satellite dish. Even then you can only watch one at a time.

True. I do have a satellite dish, but if I were to move then at least I will still get my freeview!
