John H:

Further to that said by StevensOnln1, you will need a television or set top box that is not just 'HD Ready' but one fully equipped with an HD tuner to the DVB-T2 specification. Most recent TV sets that are fully equipped will be able to receive these transmissions. Find the make and model number and search on-line for the User Manual if you don't still have the one supplied. That will tell you whether it is a full HD set or just an HD Ready one which does not have a DVB-T2 tuner.

Whether you can receive them depends entirely on your location in relation to the appropriately equipped transmitters and whether there are any terrain problems making direct reception troublesome. The link provided earlier should show which transmitters you are likely to be able to receive, which services they provide and the direction an aerial should be aimed to receive their signals.

To help you we need to know your exact location as this channel has a restricted coverage area. So would you please give your full post code, a partial is not accurate enough, so we can determine where you are in relation to the Belmont transmitter and advise accordingly.
