Default Which Smart Box to use with Dumb TV?

Hi,

As nobody seems to have a definitive answer as to whether a BT Youview box will work in the absence of an aerial connection......


Several people, including myself, have confirmed that it does work -
provided (obviously) that your broadband speed is high enough.

It isn't possible to be more definite than that.

What smartening thingies could be plugged into HDMI on a Dumb TV to enable access to (via broadband);

BBC/ITV (either real time, or catch up)

Netflix

Amazon Prime.


Any of the above. None of them, though, will make your broadband any
faster than a YouView box will. They (and the Youview box) are
esentially the same thing.

Some YV boxes have the Amazon and Netflix apps built in.
