No. You cannot receive signals from UK Freeview transmitters abroad. You box will be able to receive local "DVB-T" transmittions, if there are any.

You can use satellite equipment pointing at the Astra 2D satellite from some European countries however to get around 100 UK free-to-air channels.

Hican I use the catch-up TV part (over the internet) of a Freeview Play box to see BBC iPalyer, 4OD etc. from Italy or will the it still be blocked as iPlayer etc. is on a laptop over the internetI could use satellite TV decoder but we're to far south (ironic) and the dish would need to be massive (3m ish I'm told) to workthanks Andy

Andy: iPlayer will be blocked from outside the UK regardless of the device you are using to access it. The other catchup players almost certainly will too as the UK broadcasters don't hold the rights to show most programs in other countries.
