Re: Saorview in the North - Question?

Quick (perhaps silly) question:
Based in the North
Thinking of purchasing a TV
When I check a lot of the bargains and whether the models support Saorview, they aren't listed on the Saorview website
Was kind of hoping that this was a sort of legacy issue and modern TVs will support Saorview for Digital TV.
Is it still necessary to check if it supports Saorview?

It is mostly a  legacy issue, but any Freeview HD set should support Saorview.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

But it off Watters Electrical in Culloville and they will make sure there’s Saorview on it

By and large if the TV has a Freeview HD tuner spec'd then it'll be Saorview compatible.
