This will only affect my readers in the UK, and not my readers in Spain, as Freeview is a UK only TV service. Freeview is transmitted by land based TV masts, and received via a TV aerial. As such, Freeview IS NOT available in Spain, as the signals from the Freeview TV masts simply do not reach Spain. Freeview IS NOT available via satellite, so again not available in Spain. This is a gental reminder that Freeview IS NOT available in Spain, dispite some TV installers here in Spain saying it is.
