However if you reside in apartment building with no possibility to install a satellite antenna and even the hidden Flatmagic antenna cannot be installed then your last remaining choice is the IPTV or Broadband receiver or web streaming.  To find out  if your internet conexion is eligible for UK TV contact us here or mesure yourself your download speed at speedtest.net If you reach at least 3 Mb/sec you are eligible for free UK TV on your HD TV screen.  Here is how a Broadband receiver is connected, typically by ethernet cable but WiFi or LivePlugs are also a solution.
