Now in my new house i could find is two wire from telewest broadband box one is already connected to netgear for internet and its working. Other wire i connected to tv and tried to find the signal but i couldnt. Am i missing something??? Is that wire is not for tv?? Is there any solution without going to service provider. I dont want to pay monthly 20+ pound just for ceebies.
I would be thankful if somebody could clarify this to me.
You could have connected the Telewest/Virgin Cable directly to your TV and picked up free to view Analogue channels including BBC news but Virgin Media have recently ended that, if you have a defunct Telewest/Virgin set digital set top box, you can still view free to view BBC channels through that and there is no law to stop you afterall it is there responsibility to collect there equipment when a customers ends there service. Or if you're an existing customer you can add M+ TV package for about £7 per month which is the minimum TV package and unlike freeview, it has catch up tv as well as Sky1
