From Wikipedia: A holiday in many parts of the world is a synonym for a vacation or a specific trip for the purpose of recreation or tourism, but in the United States of America, it is considered to be a day designated as having special significance for which individuals, a government, or a religious group have deemed that observance is warranted. The word holiday comes from the Old English word hligdg. The word originally referred only to special religious days. - link icon read more about Holiday and Cruise on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Barry Cornforth:

There are at least two possible ways to get Freeview, having a TV with it 'built-in' or by adding a Set Top Box that can receive Freeview.

The first means having a TV set that is designed to receive Freeview, preferably one that had HD built in and not just HD ready. The former have a DVB-T2 tuner to get all the available Freeview channels, the latter does not have such a tuner so can't get all the channels.

The second is an additional box, rather like a Sky box, and could have a recording capability as well. Good ones cost from about ?50 without the record feature or from ?120 upwards with the record capability.

In both cases you need a suitable aerial (not one labelled 'digital') for your location. It should ideally be professionally installed and covered by a guarantee for the work done.

Note that a 'smart TV' is one that can connect to the Internet, but that is not required to get Freeview as the signals are transmitted from ground-based stations. If you put your full post code into this site, you will get to see what transmitters cover your area and some indication of the reception possibilities.
