Let the choice are small, only 20 television channels, but relevant news about the whole world is always displayed here and entertainment programs are the first to come out. All that needs to be done to get to them is to set an antenna and configure a digital TV on a TV or prefix. We have already given advice on choosing the best antenna for receiving digital TV. Now we give instructions for setting up TVs and consoles on the example of popular brands of devices.

If the antenna is installed correctly and there is a DVB-T2 tuner in the TV, it remains only to set up. In general, the algorithm of action is similar on most TVs. Following the logic from the instructions below, you can set up on almost any device.

  • We go to the main menu of the TV, and from there. to “Settings”.
  • Choosing the item “Television”, “Television” or “Canals”.
  • We launch “Auto.Narrowing” and select the source of the “Cable” signal.

This method does not apply to free. it is designed to simplify the setting of channels for users who will continue to watch digital TV on a new generation TV TV.

Instructions for connecting free channels

Time to talk about how to watch digital TV for free (20 channels)? Everything is quite simple here, the promised free television channels are available immediately after setting up the hardware: purchases of the antenna, prefixes (if necessary) and their connection.

  • The choice of antenna. First of all, we recommend that you determine the distance to the nearest broadcast (there is a map of the digital coating of Russia, we can see here). If the tower is at a distance of 5 km and there are no obstacles between you and it, we recommend buying an indoor antenna. When the distance is up to 20 km, we can use the external antenna without an amplifier. If the distance is from 20 to 80 km, you have to buy an external model with an amplifier. It is also worth clarifying, suddenly there is a cooperative antenna in the house, it better catches a signal, but a monthly fee is charged.
  • . Now we determine whether we need a prefix. If the TV is old, most likely you have to buy it. For example, Samsung TVs until 2013 may not support T2. To verify this, we study the instructions. If nothing is said about the support of DVB-T2, the prefix is ​​needed. Owners of new TVs do not need an additional device. In relation to the prefix model. we can take any, albeit the cheapest (up to 700). In expensive varieties there are additional functions: watching a video from a flash drive, recording television programs.

  • We mount all the devices. It remains to install the antenna on the roof and directed towards the nearest broadcast. We connect the cable from the antenna to the prefix or TV (if there is T2 support), and the power supply is included in the network. We connect the prefix with the TV.
  • Search for television channels. The last stage before connecting digital channels. Click on the pre.Back button “Avtopoisk” or on TV. “Auto”, which is located mainly the menu and tab “Channels”. After the completion of the procedure, all free channels become available.

  • press “next”;
  • Activate the box “only digital”.

It remains only to wait for the end of the search for channels. The same operation can be done from the section of the quick setting of the screen menu.

Important! It is worth noting that the system of cable television providers may require that the settings of time and dates on the user’s TV correspond to the broadcasting network. To do this, you need to go to the screen menu. In the block of general settings there are appropriate checkboxes for synchronization of the date and time with the broadcast network.
