Youview /TV Entertainment - Aerial Required or not?

Hi,

 

We recently had Bt Infinity 2 set up and have just been looking at the TV options and we are thinking about going for a YouView+ Box with TV Entertainment.

 

Only issue is that we don't have an aerial / we are in a bizzarre blank spot for TV signal (new build houses on the edge of a Town, everyone around us has Sky)we don't want to sign up for Sky as they are pricey, I have read on a few sites that Youview+ boxes will work without an aerial? However I wanted to double check this

 

Thanks

You will need an aerial for most channels.

 

Check coverage for your area for freeview channels here:

None of the traditional Freeview channels will work without an aerial.  You would only get the extra channels that BT provides.

I strongly recommend you check directly with Youview as to what services you might have without an aerial,
