@educabrera This question has already been answered and the answer is NO. There is no need to hijack some-one elses thread.

Depends what receiver you mean. Sky digibox to dish - only if you have a Sky subscription.
Freeview Box to terrestial aerial :- Yes

Now you've watched tonights match, you should do some more investigation into your Freeview options.

Have a look at http://www.dtg.org.uk/cgi-bin/pcode/coverage_detail.pl?postcode=RH139HZ&ant=YES

My parents live near you, and can get most of the popular channels (inc ITV2, even though the site checker says not) except Ch4.

Borrow a mates box, and try it out.

Most stores won't let you return Freeview boxes once bought, for the above reason, so be carefull to check before you buy one.

You can improve your chances dramatically with a decent Freeview wideband aerial.

And an unbroken run of good cable such as CT100 works wonders as well.

I wouldn't put too much credence in the postcode checker, if you phone a local aerial installer, he will know whether you will be able to receive digital channels.
